Vaccination chaos continues – are there fake appointments now?

Vechta (Lower Saxony) – 40 people who want to be vaccinated come to the vaccination center of the Vechta district in Lohne with a supposedly official appointment confirmation – but their names are not even registered in the country’s IT system!

What went wrong?

Initially, the district assumed a possible technical breakdown.

After consulting the country and the software provider, however, it turned out that the confirmations and QR codes of the persons concerned had not been created by the country’s IT system.

Now it should be checked whether there are possibly forged confirmations in circulation. A technical cause is still being examined. As the district announced on Thursday, there are also attempts by strangers in the district to deceive citizens by phone with falsified appointments for corona vaccinations.

“The citizens who wanted to be vaccinated with these documents cannot be blamed,” said District Administrator Herbert Winkel (CDU) according to a statement.

“You have relied on your registration to go smoothly and that you have an official document in your hands. We are extremely sorry that some people had to be turned away as a result. ”

The administration now wants to clarify how this came about.
