Vaccination against Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2

Vaccination against coronavirus helps to reduce the risk of infection and severe disease progression. In addition, vaccination significantly reduces the risk of long covid symptoms. You can get vaccinated against COVID-19 with the vaccine from Moderna (SPIKEVAX®) and BioNTech/Pfizer (Comirnaty®). For basic immunization, two vaccinations are required, 3-6 weeks apart.

Booster vaccination

For booster vaccination, the mRNA vaccines (Moderna SPIKEVAX®; BioNTech/Pfizer Comirnaty®) and the Omikron-adapted bivalent mRNA vaccines (BioNTech/Pfitzer Comirnaty Original/Omicron BA.1 and Comirnaty Original/Omicron BA.4/5 as well as Moderna Spikevax bivalent Original/Omicron BA.1) are available.

A first booster vaccination (1st booster vaccination or 3rd vaccine dose) with an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Biontech) is recommended for all persons 12 years of age and older at the earliest 6 months after basic immunization.

A second booster vaccination (2nd booster vaccination or 4th vaccine dose) is initially recommended at the earliest 6 months after the first booster vaccination for persons 60 years of age and older, residents in care facilities, medical personnel and all persons 5 years of age and older with underlying diseases that may be a risk for a possible severe course of a Covid infection, including immunodeficiencies. Underlying conditions include asthma, COPD, cardiovascular disease, liver and kidney disease, diabetes mellitus and other metabolic diseases, chronic neurological disease, immunodeficiency and HIV, cancer.

A third booster vaccination (3rd booster vaccination / 5th vaccine dose) is currently only recommended for particularly vulnerable groups of people. These include, for example, the very elderly, residents of nursing homes and the immunodeficient. The indication should be made individually by the attending physician, taking into account the state of health and the risk.

Vaccination after Covid infection

One or more previous COVID infections do not provide lasting protection against subsequent infections. Therefore, booster vaccinations are also recommended here. These should be administered at the earliest from the 3rd month after a passed infection.

What to do in case of a COVID infection, as a contact person, as a suspected case?

From 01.04.22 the so-called “SARS-CoV-2-Basisschutzmaßnahmenverordnung” is valid. This includes the change in the mask requirement in public areas, testing and behavior in case of illness. Detailed information can be found on the websites of your district health office.
