Potsdam (dpa / bb) - Brandenburg's left-wing parliamentary group chairman Sebastian Walter urges a quick solution for the transport of older people to the corona vaccinations.

"I would say that the vaccination chaos is now threatening to become a vaccination lottery," said Walter of the German press agency.

“Every day counts.

There is still no clarification as to what actually happens now if people do not come to the vaccinations by themselves. "

This must be organized via ambulance transports and taxis so that people can come to the vaccination centers who are not able to do this alone.

In addition, corona risk groups would have to be written to by municipalities for appointments.

Walter had accused the red-black-green state government of failure, criticism also came from other parliamentary groups and local authorities.

The state government of Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke (SPD) had agreed on several points with district administrators and mayors on Wednesday so that the vaccination would progress better.

18 instead of eleven vaccination centers are planned - one in each district or an independent city by the end of February if possible.

So far there have been no centers in the Prignitz, Havelland, Spree-Neisse and Oberspreewald-Lausitz districts.

More mobile vaccination teams should increase vaccination in nursing homes.

In addition, hospitals and emergency services for civil protection should also provide support.

For older people who are poorly mobile, an offer close to their home should be available.

The left parliamentary group leader assessed positively that the state government wants to focus on the vaccination of old people's and nursing homes.

"We get news every day that older people are suffering from Covid in old people's homes, that there are repeated outbreaks and that people are also dying," said Walter.

"Overall, however, the results are insufficient, because they are nothing more than declarations of intent."

In his view, clear timelines are necessary.

"It's about actually keeping the promises we made as a politician."

According to the plans of Health Minister Ursula Nonnemacher (Greens), all nursing home residents are to be vaccinated by mid-February, and if possible 60 to 70 percent of the population by summer - that is 1.5 to 1.75 million people.
