Berlin-Tegel airport will become a vaccination center
In its place, Brandenburg airport was opened
Berlin-Brandenburg airport has now been operational for a few days (read also the article published by AVIONEWS) and the old Tegel airport is somehow “recycled”. As reported by the German media in these hours, in fact, the former Terminal C will become in December a vaccination center against covid-19, one of the largest health facilities in the Teutonic capital. The goal is to receive the expected coronavirus vaccine within the first three months of next year, consequently Germany is preparing for a large-scale operation that will have to count on well-respected health centers in every part of the Nation. There is talk of 60 structures of this type, however integrated by a series of mobile teams.
If we focus exclusively on Tegel, between 3,000 and 4,000 people every day will be vaccinated in the now former Berlin airport (20,000 a day is the number to be reached in the city as a whole). Among other things, another local hub could also be recovered for the purpose of managing the health emergency, namely that of Tempelholf (used in the past also to accommodate asylum seekers). The greatest urgency is that relating to the necessary personnel to be employed, in detail doctors, nurses, authorized operators and so on, so as to make vaccinations faster and above all more effective.
