Last year, the armed forces were given a mandate to provide civilian support to fight the pandemic. In this case we are talking about the construction of two temporary vaccination centers in Bonn and Berlin for vaccination of civil servants, as well as for logistical and organizational support.
Until recently, vaccination in Germany was carried out with the help of two drugs: “BionTech – Pfizer” and “Modern”. Priority was given to citizens over 80 years of age and workers in old people’s homes.
