Germany hopes faster vaccine drive will lessen record Omicron wave

Berlin: The vaccination rate appears to be picking up in Germany, as the government tries to meet its target of having 80 per cent of the population double-vaccinated by the end of the month.
Some 780,000 doses of coronavirus vaccines were administered on Wednesday, 66,000 more than on Tuesday and considerably more than the average of 593,000 per day in the past week. Many of these were for booster shots, which have been received by 37.5 million people, or 45.1 per cent of the population. The government is particularly trying to reach those who have not been vaccinated yet, with a debate raging in parliament and among the public about a planned national vaccine mandate. (dpa)
