Elbphilharmonie to become pop-up vaccination centre

Biontech and Johnson & Johnson vaccines available from September 3 in backstage area
02 September 2021

The Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg is to become a pop-up vaccination centre from 2 pm to 10 pm on Friday (September 3, 2021) and will offer the Biontech and Johnson & Johnson vaccines in the concert's hall backstage area. The Elbphilharmonie will be the "most beautiful waiting room in the city", a press release said.

No registrations necessary

Registrations are not required for vaccinations. Those seeking a vaccination should present valid identification and a vaccination certificate, if available, in the registration centre outside the concert hall. They will then be shown the way to the consultation rooms in the artists' lofts, which are usually reserved for soloists and conductors. The first or second Biontech/Pfizer vaccine and the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine can then be given. This will be followed by a 15 minute rest on the magnificent Grand Hall's stage. 

Elbphilharmonie supports musicians' initiative

Those who receive their first Biontech vaccination can have their second done between 2 pm and 10 pm on October 2, 2021 at the Elbphilharmonie. Minors aged 12-18 years, who wish to be vaccinated, will only be given the Biontech vaccine and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The vaccination campaign should appeal to people who want to be vaccinated based on the #impfenschützt initiative by bands such as Die Ärzte and the rapper Jan Delay among other artists, the Elbphilharmonie said.
