Kannegiesser opens vaccination center

Since Friday, June 11, 2021, Kannegiesser was able to offer its employees the first 200 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine from BioNTech/Pfizer in the in-house vaccination center. In a very short time, our healthcare team organized the vaccination center in the internal logistics center in Vlotho, Germany. "This was only possible thanks to the excellent cooperation with the related departments, e.g. with the technical operations service and IT," emphasizes Marcus Oberschelp, who took the lead in organizing the facility.

"I am particularly pleased about the great interest by our employees. A total of around 400 employees from the surrounding manufacturing plants in Vlotho, Kalletal and Hoya have already registered for our vaccination program," reports Tanja Thiedig. "At our main plant in Vlotho the vaccination rate is now over 85% as many employees have already received their vaccinations from other sources."

On Friday, company physician Dr. van Leeuwen-Schöl and Dr. Muck performed the vaccinations in the two treatment rooms of the vaccination center. In addition to the treatment rooms, a large waiting and relaxation room is available to employees so that everyone can maintain the minimum distance of 1.5 m at all times.
