Infos zur Corona-Schutzimpfung

Should I get the booster vaccination (4th vaccination)?

The fourth vaccination is recommended for all persons from 12 years of age with an appropriate interval from the last vaccination (from four to six months, depending on age). For children from 5 to 11 years, the basic immunization consisting of three vaccinations is recommended.

After recovery, the next vaccination can be given according to the recommended vaccination intervals, but at the latest after four to six months.


Why is the Corona vaccination important?

COVID-19 vaccination is an important and alternative measure. On an individual level, it has been shown to minimize the risk of becoming severely ill or even dying from COVID-19. As a result, Corona vaccination reduces the number of COVID-19-related hospitalizations, protects against long-term sequelae such as Long COVID, and helps mitigate the impact of the pandemic.


How well is one protected by the COVID-19 vaccination?

Corona vaccination has been shown to reduce the risk of becoming severely ill or dying from COVID-19. With the currently prevalent omicron variant, infection can only be partially prevented by COVID-19 vaccination, but COVID-19 disease is usually much milder in vaccinated individuals.

The effectiveness of the vaccination depends on various factors: On the one hand, on the virus variant and, on the other hand, on individual factors such as age, previous illnesses, number of corona vaccinations already received before, distance to the last vaccination and possible infections with the corona virus.


Why do vaccinated individuals also contract COVID-19?

The vaccination protection is not given immediately with the vaccination, but must first be built up. If COVID-19 disease occurs despite vaccination, it is usually much milder and complications and deaths are avoided.


Can vaccine reactions and side effects occur from COVID-19 vaccination?

As after any vaccination, vaccination reactions can occur, for example, a sore local reaction on the arm, headache, fatigue or fever are common. If such mild reactions occur in the days after vaccination, it is not a cause for concern. They show that the immune system is responding and beginning to build up protection against the coronavirus. If you are unsure about any suspected side effects, please contact your doctor. Three days of physical rest is recommended after vaccination, as well as not exercising for one week.


What is the procedure of a vaccination appointment?

You can get the Corona vaccine at doctors' offices, vaccination centers and other locations. If available, please bring your immunization record, e-card and allergy card, if applicable. However, you can get vaccinated without a vaccination card or e-Card.

You will receive all medical information on site. You will be able to ask questions and your health condition will be carefully considered before the vaccination.

After your vaccination, please wait at least 15 minutes on site. You will receive your vaccination certificate right on the spot or online, depending on the organization.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is free for everyone.
