Why should I get vaccinated?
Vaccination against COVID-19 protects against contracting the disease yourself and also protects against passing the virus to others. In the case of COVID19 infection, serious complications of the lungs and other organs can occur. These can also lead to death, especially in older persons. Booster vaccination completes the vaccine protection and leads to a stable protective response for a longer period of time. In principle, regular booster vaccinations can be expected.
Which vaccine is vaccinated?
The vaccines vaccinated are Biontech/Pfizer (Comirnaty) and Moderna (Spikevax). These are mRNA vaccines, these vaccines protected against infection with COVID-19 with the highest efficacy and with very low side effects. For medical reasons, persons between 18 and 30 years of age will receive the Biontech vaccine. For other individuals, vaccine selection is based on availability; there is no individual choice.
Who can be vaccinated/boosted?
- All persons 12 years of age and older may be boostered. - For booster vaccination, the interval from the last vaccination must be at least three months. - Persons with common allergies (for example, hay fever, food or food allergies). - All persons without complications related to the first/second vaccination. - Pregnant women from the second trimester of pregnancy. - First and second vaccinations can be given at age 12 and older. The interval between first and second vaccination is 3-6 weeks for Biontech and 4-6 weeks for Moderna.
Who cannot be vaccinated?
- Persons who are acutely ill with COVID-19 or have another acute infection with fever. - Persons who have been ill with COVID-19 and in whom the infection occurred less than 6 months ago. - Individuals with complications following initial/secondary vaccination and serious adverse events from previous vaccinations for other reasons.
What documents do I need for vaccination?
Identity card, vaccination certificate and signed informed consent form or informed consent form in case of first vaccination.
What is the vaccination procedure?
At the reception on site, the personal data and the completeness of the documents are checked. After that, the vaccination takes place. Vaccination is done (for right-handed people) in the left upper arm. Please help us by wearing appropriate clothing - T-shirt, polo, sleeveless blouse. This is then followed by a follow-up of 5-10 minutes.
Are side effects expected?
Vaccination stimulates processes in the body that can trigger symptoms. These are vaccination effects and do not count as side effects. Pain at the injection site for one to two days is often reported. There may also be fatigue and mild exhaustion within 24 hours.
What to do after vaccination
Athletic exertion and drinking alcohol should be avoided for 24 hours after vaccination. In case of discomfort, preparations such as ibuprofen or paracetamol can be taken to relieve the symptoms.
How do I behave in the event of side effects that I cannot assess myself?
Serious side effects are extremely rare. If necessary, the family doctor should be contacted or the emergency room of a nearby hospital should be visited.
