Corona incidence continues to fall – after priority no longer applies: Parents organize vaccination campaign for schoolchildren

Update from June 9, 2 p.m .: Since Monday, June 7, 2021, the time has come: the vaccination priority groups have been lifted. Since then, every vaccination volunteer has been able to make an appointment for the immunization. Parents have now made use of this, they have organized a corona vaccination campaign for schoolchildren in Böblingen.

Around 200 students over twelve years of age at the Albert Einstein High School are to receive a corona vaccination in a doctor’s practice in June, as the chairman of the parents’ council, Oliver Guhl, said on Wednesday. The parents’ council had the idea for this vaccination campaign at the beginning of June and then clarified it with the school authorities. About 200 vaccine doses were offered through parents, all of which had already been given by Monday, said Guhl. A parenting doctor will now vaccinate the students. To do this, everyone has to come to the practice privately, said the parent’s representative.

The parents’ council does not want to give the exact date of the vaccination campaign. They feared negative reactions, especially to the practice, said Guhl. A further shortage of the vaccine is not given by the action. For example, there have recently not been enough buyers in the region for vaccination campaigns with the Astrazeneca vaccine, said the parent representative.

The vaccine from Biontech / Pfizer has been approved in the EU for children and adolescents aged twelve and over since the end of May. The permanent one
Vaccination Commission (Stiko) has not yet issued a recommendation on this question. According to a preliminary draft, the Stiko recommends that only children and adolescents between 12 and 17 years of age who have certain pre-existing conditions should be vaccinated. The final recommendation is expected later this week.

According to the RKI, the district of Uckermark has a value of 0.84, the district of Südwestpfalz a value of 1.05. But Brandenburg an der Havel, the district of Goslar, the district of Vorpommern-Rügen and the district of Ostholstein also have values between 1.0 and 1.99.

People in Germany who do not want to use a tracing app to display a digital vaccination certificate can switch to the “CovPass” smartphone app, which has no contact tracking function. Besides, the vaccination certificate is also provided
printed out on paper. The “CovPass” is also intended to document negative test results and survived infections and thus make traveling within the EU easier.

Corona incidence is falling – but Drosten warns of summer setbacks and names “next big task”

Original report from June 9, 2021: The nationwide 7-day R-value * is 0.71 according to the RKI management report from Tuesday evening (previous day: 0.76). The R-value reflects the occurrence of the infection 8 to 16 days ago. In purely mathematical terms, 100 infected people infect 71 other people. If it is below 1 for a longer period of time, the infection process subsides; if it is consistently higher, the number of cases increases.

Berlin – The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) reported 3,254 new corona infections and 107 other deaths in Germany on Wednesday morning. The 7-day incidence * nationwide is 20.8 (previous day: 22.9; previous week: 36.8)

Corona in Germany: Drosten expects the number of cases to rise after the summer

The virologist Christian Drosten expects the number of corona cases to rise again after the summer.

“Of course the number of cases will rise again towards winter. This can also happen in autumn. But that will happen every winter from now on, ”said Drosten on Tuesday in the“ Coronavirus Update ”podcast (NDR info). The situation is then changed by the expected effect of the vaccinations on the course of the disease: If one were to strictly only measure laboratory evidence, one would see a kind of fourth wave. But then it will no longer be a pandemic wave. Drosten had previously stated several times that he expected in the long term that Sars-CoV-2 would behave like the well-known corona viruses that cause colds.

At the same time, the head of virology at the Berlin Charité warns of setbacks in the corona vaccination campaign. One must be careful that people do not become careless in the future and, for example, no longer pick up the second vaccination because they no longer feel like it or it is too complicated. “Things like that just can’t happen. I think that will be the next big task. “
