Which vaccines?

You can go to any vaccination point for:

Primary vaccination from 5 years of age

Did you receive an invitation for your primary vaccination? Did you explicitly decline your first invitation for vaccination? Or did you miss your second dose of the vaccine? You can still be vaccinated.

Booster vaccination from 12 years of age

  • if you are eligible based on the period after the last dose of your primary vaccination:
    • from 2 months after the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
    • from 4 months after the Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccine
  • if you have received your primary vaccination and have reduced immunity, you will automatically receive a new invitation for this. People with impaired immunity can only get their fourth dose by showing their invitation.
  • if you are 12 to 17 years old and received your primary vaccination at least 4 months ago. 12 to 15-year-olds need their parents’ permission to be vaccinated.

Additional booster vaccination if you received Johnson & Johnson vaccine:

  • if you received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as your first dose
  • from 3 months after your previous booster vaccination

Childhood vaccination and booster vaccination continue in a completely separate system. At each location, child vaccination is organised in a child-friendly manner.
