Only 69% of Germany’s citizens are vaccinated. This is lower than the 74.2 percent who had jabs in Italy or the 70.7 percentage in France. The UK has a population of 69%.3% who have both had the jabs. 

This comes just weeks after Berlin health officials announced that children between five and 11 years old will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination doses.     

Children in this age range will be eligible to receive their first dose of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine in Berlin’s public mass vaccination centres. These centers are located in hospitals, schools and doctors’ offices.

These news come days after Germany’s independent advisory panel on vaccinations said that vaccination is recommended for children 5-11 years old with preexisting medical conditions or close contact to vulnerable individuals. 

The panel recommended that children in this age range should be given two doses each of Pfizer BioNTech vaccines, three to six weeks apart.

The panel was known in German as STIKO and stated that children under the age of 18 can get vaccinated if they have a ‘individual wish’. However, this is not a recommendation that everyone children within the age bracket receive shots.

The vaccine has been advocated by top government officials to reach younger children throughout the country.

Anne Spiegel, incoming minister for families, stated that it was a relief to many children aged 5-11 years old and their families in a Sunday interview.

In the days ahead, shots will be made available by other German states such as North Rhine-Westphalia and Hamburg, along with Bavaria.
