Before the nationwide involvement of company doctors in the vaccination campaign from June 7th, there will already be a test phase with model projects in Lower Saxony, announced the ministry spokesman.

During this test phase, however, the company doctors should only vaccinate employees who are entitled to do so according to the prioritization.
