Coronavirus: information on the vaccination in various languages

The SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus continues to circulate in the population, but severe courses have become significantly rarer due to the basic immunity achieved. The aim of the STIKO (Ständige Impfkommission / Permanent Vaccination Commission) recommendation for COVID-19 vaccination, which has been part of the general vaccination recommendations since the end of May 2023, is still to prevent severe COVID-19 courses, to reduce possible long-term consequences of SARS-CoV-2 infections in the entire population as far as possible, and to protect employees in medical and nursing care from SARS-CoV-2 infections.

The Ständige Impfkommission (Permanent Committee on Vaccination, STIKO) makes different recommendations for the coronavirus vaccination depending on age and any underlying illnesses. Learn more about the STIKO recommendation for the COVID-19 vaccination(German language)
