After a material breakdown in Germany, more than 200 people vaccinated against Corona may not have complete protection.
Bremen – A breakdown in a vaccination center in Bremen could have even bitter consequences for up to 256 people. You might not have full protection despite a Biontech vaccination against the coronavirus. A material error is responsible for this, as the Hanseatic city’s health department announced on Monday.
Breakdown in the vaccination center: no complete protection for more than 200 people
“The use of new material that was improperly mixed with existing material resulted in incorrect combinations of syringes and cannulas. This left a residue of the vaccine in the syringes, ”the statement said. Therefore, up to 256 people who had received a vaccination against the coronavirus in the penultimate week (July 5 to 11) are now incompletely vaccinated.
All those affected have already been determined, it continues. They were informed of the problem by post and a hotline was set up. Here the people are informed about the incident and a new appointment is made with them at the vaccination center for a new consultation.
Here it will be discussed whether a re-vaccination makes sense. This could be done three weeks later. The decision, however, is made by the relevant person, taking into account indicators such as age, health status, previous illnesses or medication intake. (rjs)
