News conference on COVID-19 pandemic, in Berlin

FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany aims to be able to vaccinate everyone seeking a COVID-19 inoculation in the country by summer, Health Minister Jens Spahn said on Wednesday.

"If the five to six manufacturers that we have contracts with manage to stay broadly on schedule ... we will be able - based on what we know today - to offer a vaccine in the summer to all those who want," Spahn said in a webcast interview with online news platform Jung & Naiv.
