Just in time for the start of fall, the National Vaccination Panel has expanded its recommendation for Corona booster vaccinations. The fourth vaccination is now recommended for everyone 12 years of age and older. Previously, the recommendation was only for people aged 60 and older and those which have an individual risk.
"As an added bonus, the booster vaccination provides a few weeks of protection against new infections - but more importantly, it reinforces long-lasting protection against severe disease. That is why we have expanded our recommendation just now - at the start of school and of fall," emphasizes Herwig Kollaritsch, member of the National Vaccination Panel.
So it's time to check your individual vaccination status and get a booster if necessary.
