Start-up assists with the allocation of vaccination appointments
Time and again, vaccination appointments remain unused or are missed. So that the vaccine does not remain lying around, the start-up Impfbrücke now helps. It notifies other people on the waiting list for the vaccine who can spontaneously drop by.
Earlier this week, 4.6 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine lay unused in German warehouses. A new high, partly because more vaccine is finally being delivered. Reason for the lying around vaccine doses are among other things not kept vaccination dates, which then remain free at short notice. This wants to solve the start-up vaccination bridge, which assigns with the help of a software at short notice vacant vaccination dates to further persons of the priority list. They then get a text message that the appointment is free and can pick up their dose.
Who the choice falls on is random. The SMS goes out to three people at the same time, and the appointment can be accepted within half an hour with a simple "yes" response as an SMS. Currently, 13 vaccination centers are using the software of Vaccine Bridge, which connects the software with their data. Everything is encrypted in the process, even the developers of Vaccine Bridge do not have access.
The start-up's founders are Manuel Hüttel and Pirmin Straub, who come from Cologne-based start-up Lit Labs. They came up with the idea for the vaccine bridge in January and realized it within three weeks. They are receiving support from Black Mars Capital.
