The City of Munich vaccine bus will parked on the walkway outside the Allianz Arena for the sixth time on Saturday before the match against TSG Hoffenheim (kick-off 15:30 CEST). Stadium visitors aged 12 and above can be vaccinated against COVID-19 without appointment from 12:30 to 15:30. The bus will be on the path between the underground station and the Arena, where the ‘Paulaner Garten’ is normally set up. Children between 12 and 15 years old must be accompanied by a person with parental authority.

Jan-Christian Dreesen, FC Bayern vice chairman, said: “We’re delighted about this joint project with the City of Munich, which has so far been very well utilised by the visitors to our Allianz Arena. It’s important to us to make a contribution to society in this way, so that we can finally go back to life before coronavirus, as being vaccinated is the best way to do that. The vaccination levels among our stadium visitors are exemplary in general, and the City of Munich is also extremely pleased with the response of our fans to the vaccine bus.”

Second doses available

Appointments are again not necessary on Saturday, although prior registration on BayIMCO (HERE) is preferred in order to speed up the process on the day. Generally you will be able to choose which vaccine you are given. Second doses are also available, so long as the minimum gap since the first dose has elapsed. For BioNTech this is three weeks, for Moderna and AstraZeneca mix-and-match vaccines (first dose AstraZeneca, second dose BioNTech) it is four weeks. Proof of first dose is required (yellow vaccine pass or vaccination certificate). People who are not residents of Munich can also be vaccinated.

To be vaccinated, you must bring a valid form of identification (ID card or passport) as well as, if applicable, the yellow vaccine pass. Please note that this vaccination is not relevant to the proof of ‘3G’ status (tested, vaccinated, recovered) for entry into the stadium, as the required protection from the vaccine only takes effect 15 days after the second dose.

The Allianz Arena will be at full capacity for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic on Saturday:
