RKI reports over 600,000 vaccinations for Germany for the first time


The vaccination campaign in Germany is picking up speed. The Robert Koch Institute reports a new vaccination record for Wednesday. With 656,357 first and second vaccinations, the old best value is clearly exceeded.

With the involvement of general practitioners, the pace of corona vaccinations in Germany has increased significantly. On Wednesday, the Robert Koch Institute reported 656,357 first and second vaccinations within one day – this is by far the highest value since the start of the vaccination campaign in Germany.

More than 300,000 of these were general practitioners, almost 565,000 were primary vaccinations. This means that 13.9 percent of citizens in Germany have been vaccinated against Covid-19 at least once.

At the start of this week, around 35,000 medical practices in Germany received a total of 940,000 vaccine doses. So, on average, almost 27 cans went into each practice. “But by the end of April we will be able to triple this amount,” promised Health Minister Jens Spahn.

Then a total of three million vaccines should go to the practices every week. The basic rule is: 2.25 million vaccine doses per week are reserved for the vaccination centers. Anything beyond that goes to the doctors.
