As part of a pilot project by the state of Baden-Württemberg, corona vaccinations will soon start at Stuttgart Airport. The company doctors will vaccinate selected employees. The Ministry of Social Affairs wants to test the involvement of medical professionals who are employed in companies.
Stuttgart Airport announced that the vaccination campaign is to be carried out in the Medical Center, which is located in Terminal 1-West. Not only direct relatives of the airport company but also of the subsidiaries on campus are to be vaccinated. In addition to organizing the test center for return travelers in the summer of 2020, the airport had staff from the subsidiaries at times and also supported health authorities in tracing contact persons.
“By taking care of the large test center here at the airport for those returning from traveling, we have gained a lot of experience in organizing the processes. We see the fact that we have now been selected for the Ministry of Social Affairs' pilot project as recognition of our previous commitment to fighting pandemics, ”explains Managing Director Walter Schoefer.
