Polch (dpa / lrs) - The Rhineland-Palatinate Prime Minister Malu Dreyer and Health Minister Sabine Bätzing-Lichtenthäler (both SPD) want to present the country's vaccination plan for March today.

In Rhineland-Palatinate, the Astrazeneca agent is now also to be vaccinated against the corona virus.

"With the approval of the additional vaccine from Astrazeneca, many more people, especially those under 65 years of age, can get their vaccinations," the State Chancellery announced at the appointment that will take place at the Mayen-Koblenz vaccination center in Polch.

Dreyer and Bätzing-Lichtenthäler want to explain how many new vaccination appointments can be given due to new delivery commitments and who can expect a syringe to protect against the corona virus in March.
