Kiel (dpa / lno) - Schleswig-Holstein's Minister of Health Heiner Garg (FDP) has heavily criticized the lack of corona vaccine.

With the preparation announced by Biontech by the end of February - with 345,000 beneficiaries in the first group - 95,000 women and men could be vaccinated, Garg said in the state parliament on Wednesday.

"We could vaccinate 300,000 Schleswig-Holsteiners every month," he calculated.

"I'm slowly bursting at this point."

Sufficient structures for vaccination have been set up in the north.

After all, it was possible to vaccinate 90 percent of the residents of nursing homes.

In 23 homes, the vaccinations have been completed, including a second vaccination.

"We could do a lot more."

Garg called for a complete clarification of the problems in obtaining vaccine.

The federal government must keep its promise to make everyone a vaccination offer by summer.

In response to the debate about possible “privileges” for vaccinated people, Garg said that it was not about privileges, but about basic rights.

"These are human rights of freedom."

Incidentally, one should behave more humbly as long as it is not proven whether a vaccination protects against infecting others and not enough vaccine is available.


According to the Robert Koch Institute, 91,500 vaccinations were carried out in the north up to and including Tuesday.

With a rate of 3.0 for first vaccinations, the state has the third highest value after Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Rhineland-Palatinate.

"The people in Schleswig-Holstein want to be vaccinated," said CDU parliamentary group vice-president Katja Rathje-Hoffmann.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of vaccines, the vaccination centers that have been set up are not fully utilized.

"Some don't run at all."

The delivery difficulties are almost unbearable.

The SPD politician Birte Pauls also complained about the delivery problems with the vaccine.

Astrazeneca's breach of contract with the EU is a scandal.

Green Marret Bohn was confident.

"We'll get through the crisis together," said the doctor.

The vaccination is only one component.

Keeping your distance, hygiene, masks and testing were among other things.
