Initiative

Together against Corona

"We need more people to get vaccinated!" This is the mission which has lead to the formation of the largest anti-Corona initiative to date, 'Brands Against Corona', initiated by the German business community. Currently, more than 150 German companies and brands are already taking part and are calling out together to fight vaccination fatigue and make public life in Germany safe again.

The fourth wave of the Pendemic has now become a reality in Germany and can be seen, among other things, in overcrowded hospitals and infection figures that are higher than ever before.

But together we can do something about it, so that we can continue to welcome you to our events and concerts. As the 'Deutsches IMPFonie-Orchester Berlin', (The Germany VAXony Orchestra Berlin) we are also calling on all citizens to get vaccinated, on our social media channels and on out website.
