You can bring someone to the appointment to help you.

Vaccination locations

Check the current opening times of the vaccination locations.

After the vaccination

After the vaccination, you will sit in a waiting room for another 15 minutes to see if an allergic reaction occurs. A doctor is present at all times.

Possible side effects

For a few days after the vaccination, you may experience muscle pain or fever. This is normal. Do you have any concerns? Please contact your doctor.

Have you been vaccinated? If so, there is a good chance that you will not become ill or will feel less ill after an infection with the coronavirus. It is not yet known whether someone who has been vaccinated can still spread the virus. For this reason, you should still follow the generally applicable coronavirus rules after the vaccination.
