    Germany is hoping to have mass vaccination centres ready next month so it can start immunising people as soon as it approves a vaccine.

    Hundreds of booths are being created inside large warehouses or exhibition halls where thousands of people can safely be immunised daily.

    Six of these centres are planned across Berlin – serving a population of about 3.6 million.

    Unlike the United Kingdom, Germany has said it will not rush to approve any particular vaccine – until it is proven safe.

    Al Jazeera’s Dominic Kane reports from Berlin, Germany.
