Insufficient vaccination status: More than 7,800 employees from Berlin hospitals, nursing homes, emergency services or medical practices are still not fully vaccinated against Corona or have not been able to provide credible proof. Entry bans have not yet been issued to them. The health administration announced this in an answer to a parliamentary question by MP Lars Düsterhöft (SPD) as of May 19.

Insufficient vaccination status: More than 7,800 employees from Berlin hospitals, nursing homes, emergency services or medical practices are still not fully vaccinated against Corona or have not been able to provide credible proof. Entry bans have not yet been issued to them. The health administration announced this in an answer to a parliamentary question by MP Lars Düsterhöft (SPD) as of May 19.

Since the start of the facility-related corona vaccination requirement on March 16, 7638 people have not submitted proof of vaccination or recovery or a medical certificate that exempts them from vaccination. For another 177 people, there are doubts about the authenticity of the evidence presented, it said.

However, of these 7,815 people, 1,050 have already received a first vaccination, made an appointment for a vaccination or declared their willingness to be vaccinated at short notice.

The administration was not able to specify an absolute corona vaccination rate because the data for all employees was not available. According to a self-assessment by 1,300 institutions and companies with around 109,000 employees, the proportion of those who are insufficiently or not vaccinated is 5.5 percent.

In the health and care sector, a facility-related corona vaccination has been mandatory since March 15th. In Berlin, the health authorities assess how much health care could be at risk in a certain area or district. In this way, they can suspend proceedings against the unvaccinated if necessary. This means that these employees are not automatically banned from entering or working, but in certain cases they are allowed to continue working for the time being.
