In Berlin, people can get vaccinated against Corona at several spots in the city most of which are usually not connected to medical services at all. They include one of the city’s zoos, a home improvement market and a fast food place.
Berlin, September 11th, 2021 (The Berlin Spectator) — This coming week, Berliners can choose to get vaccinated at the strangest places. At Kaplan Döner, a Turkish fast food restaurant located at Luxemburger Str. 35, close to the eastern city center, they may get immunized from Wednesday, September 15th to Friday, September 17th, 2021, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.. The best part? Persons who accept the offer will receive a voucher for a doner kebab, and they probably still have a choice between spicy, garlic or regular sauce.
For those who believe this is not creative enough, there is still Markthalle Neun in Kreuzberg, a nice place with little food stands in Berlin’s artsy Kreuzberg borough. This is one of the most politically correct places in the German capital, especially while they offer immunizations there. The latter is the case on Friday, September 17th, 2021, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m.. Just walk in. No appointments are necessary.
Still not unconventional enough? How about getting your shot while following a match with the ‘Eisbären’ ice hockey team at their stadium, the Mercedes-Benz Arena? This is an option too, before, during and after their match against the team from Mannheim, on Sunday, September 19th, 2021. Only one of the two teams can win, but so will anyone who gets vaccinated against Corona at the stadium, located at Mercedes-Platz 1.
Shots and Tests
You guessed right: There is more. On Friday, September 17th, Berliners can get vaccinated at the Chamber of Commerce (‘Handwerkskammer’) at Blücherstrasse 68 in Kreuzberg from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. Homeless people may also go to the ‘Kiezmahlzeit Johanniter’ place at Ohlauer Strasse 22, on Friday, September 17th, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m.. At Schlosstrasse 10, there will be a walk-in vaccination spot from Monday, September 13th to Saturday, September 18th, from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.. They offer Corona tests there as well.
Another walk-in spot is supposed to be set up at Schnellerstrasse 137 in Berlin’s Niederschöneweide neighborhood. This one will be available from Monday, September 13th to Friday, September 17th, from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday, September 18th, from 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m.. Yet another vaccination spot? No problem. Here we go: At the OBI home improvement market located at Goerzallee 189-223 in the German capital’s Steglitz-Zehlendorf district, they are getting ready to vaccinate people against COVID-19 on Saturday, September 18th from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m..
Music and Beer
Are there even more immunization spots? Sure. There is one at the market square in Spandau on Saturday, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., another one at Landessportbund Berlin e.V., located at Jesse-Owens-Allee 2, on Wednesday, September 15th from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and yet another one at the Messe Berlin vaccination center. Here, they will not only offer Corona vaccinations but also piano music and alcohol-free beer, on Thursday and Friday, September 16th and 17th, from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.. How unconventional can it get?
No, we still have not gotten to the end of the list. A Corona vaccination opportunity will be provided at the Olympic Stadium on Friday, September 17th, from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m.. This immunization spot seems to be connected to a soccer match which involves the Hertha BSC team. And, finally, vaccinations against COVID-19 will be offered at the ‘FACE Family Center’ at Wilhelmsruher Damm 161 in Wittenau on Tuesday, September 14th and Thursday, September 16th, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m..
I.D. Cards Required
Oh! We almost forgot a vaccination opportunity, namely the one at Zoo Berlin’s entrance at Hardenbergstrasse 8. This one will be open on Friday, September 17th from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m..
All offers mentioned are for citizens of Berlin, according to the Senate Administration of Health. In most cases, the Moderna vaccine will be used. I.D. cards need to be brought along, and, if available, a German ‘vaccination book’ document. “Getting vaccinated was never as easy as it is now”, Senator Dilek Kalayci stated.
