FC Bayern plans further initiatives with City of Munich
FC Bayern and the state capital Munich have delivered a positive review of the two mobile vaccination campaigns during the friendly against Borussia Mönchengladbach and the 'FC Bayern Allianz Team Presentation'. At the second visit from the vaccine bus in front of the Allianz Arena, 67 people were vaccinated within three hours, according to a statement from the city. Further campaigns in collaboration with the city are now planned, both at Bundesliga matches and outside the Audi Dome for basketball games.
"We're delighted by the great reception from fans to this joint vaccination initiative with the City of Munich," said Jan-Christian Dreesen, deputy CEO of FC Bayern. "Vaccination is the only way out of the pandemic, and we all want to get back to living life the way we did before coronavirus. That's why we're going to implement further vaccination initiatives with the City of Munich."
Health advisor Beatrix Zurek said: "The success shows that the enthusiasm for sport and willingness to be vaccinated complement each other perfectly. The next collaborations are already in the planning. We're offering a whole range of vaccination campaigns in the city region over the summer, whether in shopping centres or next week again at the main office of the regional administrative authority. I'm happy about every single vaccination because each one brings us a step closer to our aim of finally overcoming this pandemic."
