Germany could start administration COVID-19 vaccines in December: Health Minister Jens Spahn

In a statement, German Health Minister Jens Spahn said, Germany could start administering COVID-19 vaccines as early as December 2020.

“There is reason to be optimistic that there will be approval for a vaccine in Europe this year,” said Spahn in an interview with RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland. “And then we can start right away.”

He went on to add, he has asked federal states to have their vaccination centres ready by mid-December which is going well.

“I would rather have a vaccination centre ready a few days early than an approved vaccine that isn’t being used immediately,” said Spahn.

So far, Germany has secured more than 300 million vaccine doses from the European Commission, through bilateral contracts and options, said Spahn.

He went on to add, there was sufficient room to share the doses with other countries.
