Germany launched a national vaccination campaign on Monday, aimed at boosting the immunization rate before the winter season.
In addition to the places already designated, people will now be able to get vaccines without booking in advance at some locations within the state, including some libraries, shopping malls and mosques.
The Minister for Chancellery, Helge Braun, said on Sunday that these vaccination centers will remain open in the coming weeks.
The timing of the vaccination campaign aims to avoid the greater rate of infections in the winter season, he said.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on citizens to take advantage of these opportunities.
“Vaccination has never been easier. “It has never been faster,” she said in a video released Sunday.
Vaccines will also be offered at fire stations, on trams and near football fields.
Currently, about 62 percent of the population in Germany is fully vaccinated against coronavirus.
However, interest has been reported to have declined recently. According to experts, at least 75 percent of people should be vaccinated to reduce the impact of the fourth wave of the pandemic, while the percentage should be higher to prevent it.
