Even almost two weeks after the start of the nationwide vaccination campaign, the federal and state levels are jerky. Some countries have now stopped making appointments because they do not know when and how much vaccine will be delivered.

Vaccination is currently being offered primarily to people over 80 in old people’s and nursing homes. Then you gradually go down in old age. The order in which vaccinations are currently given priority can be found in the Corona Vaccination Ordinance of the Ministry of Health:

Vaccination offer to everyone in summer – how realistic is that?

But what about those who are neither old nor sick?

Just a few days ago, Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) said that he wanted to be able to offer every citizen a vaccination offer as early as the second quarter of 2021 – until June 30th. He later put this into perspective, but nevertheless reaffirmed the goal of being able to offer all Germans a vaccination “in summer”. From a purely calendar perspective, summer will last until September 22, 2021.
