Düsseldorf (dpa/lnw) - The state government initially expects 2.8 million doses of the new corona vaccines for North Rhine-Westphalia in the coming weeks. The new vaccination campaign is currently being prepared, but still depends on the expected recommendation of the Standing Vaccination Commission, the NRW Ministry of Health announced on Thursday evening.
The European Medicines Agency EMA gave the green light for two new vaccines from Biontech and Moderna on Thursday. They are adapted to the Omicron variant. The two vaccines could be used for booster vaccinations for people aged twelve and over.
