Vaccination is the way out of the corona pandemic. According to the Robert Koch Institute, the actual vaccination rate could be higher than reported.
Berlin – In Germany, 65.3 percent of the population are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. The rate among adults was 75.8 percent on Sunday, according to data from the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) on Monday.
According to this, 68.5 percent of all citizens and 79.3 percent of adults are vaccinated against the virus at least once.
Among the children and adolescents aged 12 to 17 years, 43.2 percent have now received at least one first injection, 37.0 percent are fully vaccinated.
The RKI assumes, however, that probably more people are vaccinated than the data suggest. In a report at the beginning of October, for example, it said that the rate for people who had been vaccinated once and completely could be up to 5 percentage points higher.
Over a million people in Germany have already received a booster vaccination. The RKI gave the value on Monday as 1 021 344. dpa
