Hamburg (dpa / lno) - With the administration of the first vaccination doses to residents and employees of care facilities, the corona vaccinations begin in Hamburg today.

At the beginning (11.00 a.m.) Mayor Peter Tschentscher and Health Senator Melanie Leonhard (both SPD) want to accompany the vaccinations in the Hospital of the Holy Spirit in the Poppenbüttel district.

The vaccine from the companies Biontech and Pfizer was only approved in the European Union last Monday and the first doses of the vaccine were delivered to the federal states in Germany on Saturday.
