Daily record: 1.35 million vaccinations in Germany


Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn reports a new daily record for vaccinations in Germany. Accordingly, around 1,353,453 doses of corona vaccine were inoculated on Wednesday. This means that almost 36 percent of all Germans have been vaccinated at least once and 10.6 percent are even fully protected.

According to Spahn, by the end of May the focus will no longer be on the first vaccination, but on the second vaccination. This is necessary in order to achieve full vaccination protection for those who have already been vaccinated once. The first vaccinations would then come to the fore again in June, says the CDU politician.According to the RKI, there had already been three days in the past few weeks before the new daily record was set on which more than a million injection syringes were used. In total, about 38.6 million vaccine doses were administered up to and including Thursday. The vaccination rate varies depending on the federal state. The Saarland has the highest quota of at least first vaccinated persons at 40.4 percent. At 31.1 percent, Saxony is slightly behind the other federal states.
