People who live in community shelters often cannot follow the social distancing rules of the covid regulation. Therefore, those people are particularly at risk from the epidemic and are being vaccinated earlier than others, explains Dr. Saif Afat in a video interview with tünews INTERNATIONAL. Saif Afat came to Germany from Iraq in 2004. He is a vaccinator at the covid vaccination centre in Tübingen and received his own vaccination in January. In community shelters, for example, several refugees often share one room, he says. They also share communal kitchens and bathrooms. There, encounters cannot be avoided and the virus can spread faster, Afat explains. For this reason, the Standing Commission on Vaccination has classified refugees in collective accommodations in the second highest risk level.
