Halberstadt (dpa) - With the early start of the Corona vaccination on Boxing Day, Halberstadt made headlines nationwide - some of the first ampoules are now coming to the museum.

The Ameos Clinic handed them over to the Halberstadt municipal collection on Friday.

On December 26th, the 101-year-old nursing home resident Edith Kwoizalla was the first to be vaccinated in Halberstadt, which was followed by other residents and staff.

The vaccination ampoules should now be in the historical pharmacy of the city museum.

Visitors can see them through a pane of glass when the house is open again after the corona-related closure.

The city emphasized that the tasks of the city collection not only include preserving the old, but also recording contemporary historical documents and objects of particular importance.

The new exhibits should document the current pandemic and explain it clearly to posterity.

The new objects also include a textile mouth and nose protector with the “Halberstadt 2020” logo and an ampoule pallet for storing vaccines, which a high school produced with a 3-D printer.
