The large vaccination center on Hanover’s exhibition grounds has been closed since the end of September, the syringes are only available in doctors’ offices and by so-called “mobile vaccination teams”. In addition, there have recently been vaccinations at several fixed locations in Hanover and the surrounding area. Interested parties can come by there spontaneously and without registering. First and second vaccinations are offered, and people who have already been completely vaccinated are cared for, for whom the Standing Vaccination Commission (Stiko) recommends a booster vaccination.
Where can I get vaccinated spontaneously in Hanover?
Since October 18, all residents of the region can be vaccinated without making an appointment at the health department of the Hanover region in Weinstrasse 2, Hanover-Südstadt. On average, around 500 vaccinations per day are carried out unbureaucratically there. The vaccination center is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m.
Since the 2-G rules were tightened, demand has increased. Interested parties should also bring waiting times (visitors report one and a half hours at peak times).
In order to cope with the increased rush in the health department, another small vaccination center was set up in containers a few meters further on in the parking lot of the Regionshaus at Hildesheimer Straße 18.

Who can come to the vaccination centers?
All decentralized vaccination centers are open to all residents of the region. Nobody should be turned away, no matter from which city. The locations are chosen so that they cover the north-west and north-east, the south-west and south of the region and are relatively easy to reach by local public transport.
In the decentralized vaccination centers, classic first and second vaccinations are also offered (for everyone from the age of twelve) the so-called booster vaccinations (booster vaccinations) for the group of people recommended by Stiko. These are currently people over 70 years of age, people in nursing homes and employees in certain professions, especially in the health industry. The condition is that full vaccination protection has been in place for six months. Those who have received the Johnson & Johnson single vaccine can be boosted after just four weeks.
Which vaccine is offered?
It is vaccinated with the substance from Biontech / Pfizer.
What do I have to bring with me?
If you want to be vaccinated, you need your ID and vaccination card, but not your health insurance card.
Who pays for the offer?
The vaccinations are basically free of charge for the patients. The centers do not work privately, but are offered by the authorities. The municipalities provide and pay for the rooms and furnishings. The region secures the delivery of the vaccine and manages the staff. The mobile vaccination teams, of which there are currently eight, are used. The region will continue to increase the number.
Can I still get vaccinated elsewhere?
As a rule, it is still the case that you get vaccinated by your family doctor. They advise and administer first and second vaccinations as well as booster vaccinations.
Are the mobile vaccination teams still mobile?
Yes. There will also be offers for changing teams in the coming week. The dates and locations will be announced at short notice on hannover.de.
