Vechta (dpa / lni) - In the investigation of false vaccination date confirmations in the district of Vechta, the police have so far no evidence of criminal acts.

The investigations have not yet been completed, said a spokeswoman on Friday.

It is also still unclear whether the cause is to be found in technical problems.

On Wednesday, around 40 elderly people appeared at the vaccination station in the Vechta district in Lohne, whose vaccination date was not stored in the state's IT system.

Initially, a technical problem was considered, but after an initial check it seemed rather implausible.

Then it became known that there were calls from a stranger to those who wanted to be vaccinated, asking for personal data.

This led to the suspicion that the persons concerned might have received the confirmation of appointments with fraudulent intent.

There have been no new cases with wrong appointment confirmations since Thursday, said a district spokesman.

Also on Friday, only people came to the vaccination center who had a valid vaccination certificate.

Everything runs smoothly.

The district now wants to wait for the police and the country to investigate.
