The most important questions and answers about vaccination in Baden-Wurttemberg (as of 4. April 2022)

Where to vaccinate?

To 1. October 2021 the vaccination centers in Baden-Wurttemberg have closed. Since then, the vaccinations against the coronavirus are mainly carried out by the practicing medical profession. In addition, company physicians and pharmacies are involved in the vaccination campaign.

In addition, mobile vaccination teams are deployed in all urban and rural districts in Baden-Wurttemberg to support physicians in private practice. In addition, the existing vaccination buses in the state will be integrated into the state concept where desired.

The offer is supplemented by regional vaccination bases in the urban and rural districts.

The mobile vaccination teams will continue to use part of their capacity for on-site vaccination campaigns. In some communities, these services will also be provided by general practitioners, as in the past. On-site immunization clinics are an important point of contact for people without a primary care physician.

On Keeping Up-BW.Here you can find current vaccination campaigns at your location. It is also worth taking a look at the websites of your city or district every now and then, as vaccination campaigns are also announced here. Pharmacies that perform the Corona vaccination can be found here.

It is also worthwhile to take a look at the websites of your city or district, in the local press, radio or on their social media channels, as vaccination campaigns are also announced here.

For whom is vaccination recommended?

Status: 22. February 2022

The Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends the Corona vaccination for all adults aged 18 years and older and according to the recommendation of 24. August 2021 also for all children. adolescents from the age of 12 .

Since the 17. December 2021, STIKO also recommends vaccination of children ages 5 to 11 with pre-existing conditions. These have an increased risk of severe COVID-19 progression.

In addition, vaccination is recommended for 5 to 11 year olds who are around persons at high risk for severe COVID-19, who cannot be vaccinated themselves, or who have a reasonable suspicion that vaccination will not result in adequate protection. Vaccination can also be administered to 5- to 11-year-olds without pre-existing conditions at the individual request of children. Parents or legal guardians after medical information is provided. Basic immunization is given with two doses of BioNTech's Comirnaty mRNA vaccine in an age-approved formulation.

Since the 10th. September 2021 there is also a recommendation of the STIKO for pregnant women and nursing mothers.

The final decision on whether to vaccinate in a specific individual case is always up to the vaccinating physician. The vaccination physicians, for example in the regional vaccination centers, are not bound by any directives. They bear the medical responsibility for the vaccination.

For whom is a booster vaccination recommended??

Status: 22. February 2022

Since the age of 18. November 2021 the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends a COVID-19 booster vaccination (third vaccination) for all persons aged 18 and over. Since 13. January 2022 a booster vaccination is also recommended for all 12 to 17 year olds. The booster vaccination should be given with an mRNA vaccine from the third month after completion of the basic immunization.

Those who become infected with the virus less than three months after completing the basic immunization should receive the booster vaccination three months after infection. If the infection occurs at least three months after completion of the basic immunization, no booster vaccination is necessary until further notice.

In addition, the STIKO recommends since 15. February 2022 a second booster vaccination (fourth vaccination) with an mRNA vaccine for people aged 70 years and older, residents and persons cared for in nursing facilities, people with immune deficiency aged 5 years and older, as well as persons working in medical facilities and nursing facilities. The second booster vaccination should be given at the earliest three months after the first booster vaccination for groups of people at risk of health problems; personnel in medical and nursing facilities should receive the second booster vaccination at the earliest after six months. See also 18. Update of the COVID-19 vaccination recommendation (PDF).

For booster vaccination, a single vaccine dose is sufficient.

According to the Paul Ehrlich Institute, heterologous third vaccination, i.e. booster vaccination with the Moderna vaccine after previous vaccination with the BioNTech vaccine, leads to a significant increase in antibody titers in vaccinated persons. Therefore, there is a presumption that switching mRNA vaccines as part of booster vaccination will provoke a stronger immune response and thus more robust vaccine protection.

Antibody testing only necessary in immunocompromised individuals

In persons with severe immunodeficiency, i.e., immunodeficiency, there is the possibility of a lack of immune response and thus a lack of protection against COVID-19 despite administered vaccines. Therefore, they should be offered serologic testing for specific antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein both after the fourth week following the second vaccine dose and after the fourth week following the third vaccine dose. There is no need to wait for the result of the first antibody test before administering a third dose of vaccine. The federal government will consider a scheme to fund antibody testing for this group of people.

What applies to persons vaccinated with a vaccine not licensed in the EU?

According to the recommendation of the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) of 31. March 2022, persons who have already received a complete primary immunization with Sinovac (CoronaVac), Sinopharm (Covilo), Bharat Biotech (Covaxin) or Gamaleya (Sputnik V) vaccines should receive a booster vaccination with an mRNA vaccine. This also applies to persons who have received a complete basic vaccination and a booster vaccination with one of the vaccines listed above. A minimum interval of three months should be observed between the last previous vaccination and the booster vaccination with an mRNA vaccine. Anyone who has been infected with the virus after completing the basic immunization should receive the booster vaccination with an mRNA vaccine no earlier than three months after infection.

Individuals who have been vaccinated with a vaccine other than those listed above, or who have received only one vaccination to date with a vaccine not licensed in the EU, are recommended to receive a new complete series of vaccinations with a vaccine licensed in the EU (two vaccinations for basic immunization and one booster). Since when is vaccination compulsory in medical. Nursing facilities?The so-called facility-based vaccination requirement has been in effect nationwide since 16. March 2022. Employees of, for example, clinics, nursing homes, doctors' offices, and emergency medical services must have presented or present to their employer proof of complete vaccination, proof of recovery, or a doctor's note that they cannot be vaccinated.

The Ministry of Social Affairs has ied a handout (PDF) on facility-based mandatory vaccination for institutions and companies. Why was there prioritization in the vaccination campaign. What was the order of the groups of persons eligible to be vaccinated before 7. June 2021 off? June 2021 off?At the beginning of the vaccination campaign, vaccination was still carried out according to prioritization groups due to the shortage of vaccine. People who were at particularly high risk of severe, potentially fatal, COVID-19 disease could thus be protected first.

The classification of the population groups prioritized for Corona vaccination was based on the recommendations of the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) at the Robert Koch Institute for COVID-19 vaccination. This recommendation was included in the federal coronavirus vaccination regulation.

In its recommendation on "Prioritization of COVID-19 vaccination", the STIKO defined a total of six prioritization levels. The Coronavirus Vaccine Regulation adopted this concept in an adapted form and established three mandatory prioritization groups – subdivided into the categories "highest priority", "high priority" and "increased priority" – in the order of which citizens were offered vaccination. The prioritization followed the basic idea that those who are particularly at risk due to their age, certain pre-existing conditions or their occupation should be vaccinated first.

While vaccination prioritization in physicians' offices in Baden-Wurttemberg had already begun on 17. Since the abolition of the age limit on vaccination on May 7, 2021, it has been possible to obtain the consent of the guardian. June 2021, all persons aged 12 and older, regardless of their health status or occupation, will receive a vaccination appointment. What to do when vaccinating children. Adolescents to note?As a rule, the ability to consent to a medical intervention – in this specific case, for example, a vaccination – is given from the age of 16 years onwards. This means that, as a rule, adolescents over the age of 16 are able to make their own decisions regarding vaccination and to consent to it. The prerequisite is an explanation of the treatment and its risks.

A vaccination is a routine medical measure, so that in special individual cases the ability to give consent can be given earlier than at the age of 16, but generally not before the age of 14. The vaccination can be given before the child reaches the age of 18. The question of capacity to consent is subject to individual review by the physician.

In the event that the young person is not capable of giving consent, the consent of the legal guardian is required.

Is there a vaccination recommendation for children?

Status: 26. January 2022

For vaccination of children and adolescents, the COVID-19 vaccines Comirnaty (BioNTech/Pfizer) and Spikevax (Moderna's COVID-19 Vacczine) are licensed in Europe for persons 12 years of age and older. With the approval of the vaccine, the EU Commission confirmed corresponding recommendations of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

The Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends COVID-19 vaccination for all 12- to 17-year-olds with two doses of Comirnaty mRNA vaccine given three to six weeks apart. In addition, since 13. As of January 2022, a booster vaccination with the mRNA vaccine Comirnaty in the age-appropriate dosage of 30 micrograms is recommended for all 12- to 17-year-olds. The third vaccine dose should be administered at least three months apart from the previous vaccination.

In consideration of all available data, the STIKO now also recommends the COVID-19 vaccination for children aged 5 to 11 years with various pre-existing diseases. In addition, vaccination is recommended for children in whose environment there are contacts with a high risk of a severe course of COVID-19, who themselves cannot be protected or can only be insufficiently protected by vaccination, such as the very elderly and immunosuppressed persons. In addition, 5- to 11-year-old children without pre-existing conditions can also be vaccinated against COVID-19 after appropriate medical education, provided that there is an individual request by the children and parents or guardians. Vaccination is given with two doses of BioNTech's Comirnaty mRNA vaccine in an age-appropriate licensed formulation. The goal of the recommendation is to, among other things, severe COVID-19 progressions. Prevent deaths in children 5 to 11 years of age. Although the 7-day incidence in the age group is very high, so that it can be amed that without vaccination a large proportion of 5- to 11-year-olds will be infected in the medium term, most infections are asymptomatic.

Currently, there is only a low risk of severe COVID-19 disease, hospitalization, and intensive care for children without pre-existing conditions in this age group. In addition, the risk of rare side effects of the vaccination cannot be assessed at present due to the limited data available. Therefore, STIKO does not currently make a general vaccination recommendation for 5- to 11-year-old children without pre-existing conditions. As soon as further data on the safety of the vaccine in this age group or other relevant findings are available, STIKO will immediately review them and adjust the recommendation if necessary.

Vaccination requires a medical explanation, taking into account the benefits and risks. The final decision on whether to vaccinate in a specific case always rests with the vaccinating physician. The vaccinating physicians are not bound to instructions, because they bear the medical responsibility for the vaccination.

Are pregnant women/breastfeeding mothers allowed to be vaccinated?

The Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends vaccination against COVID-19 for all unvaccinated pregnant women from the second trimester onwards with two doses of the mRNA vaccine from BioNTech (Comirnaty) at intervals of three to six weeks. If pregnancy has already been established after the first vaccination, the second vaccination should only be carried out from the second trimester onwards.

Unvaccinated breastfeeding women are recommended to receive two doses of mRNA vaccine three to six weeks apart (Comirnaty) or four to six weeks apart (Spikevax). Breastfeeding women under 30 years of age should be vaccinated with Comirnaty (BioNTech) – see also "Who determines which vaccine is administered??".

As the Epidemiological Bulletin 38/2021 of the Robert Koch Institute (PDF) states, the vaccination produces a very good protective effect against infection and severe COVID-19 courses to the same extent in pregnant women as in non-pregnant women. Available safety data do not show a clustered occurrence of serious adverse drug reactions (ADRs) during pregnancy or an increased risk of serious ADRs during breastfeeding for mother and child.

Can I be vaccinated even if I have just received another vaccination??

At the beginning of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) recommended as a precautionary measure that a minimum interval of 14 days be observed between the application of a COVID-19 vaccination and other vaccines, in order to be able to clearly assign vaccination reactions to the respective vaccination. Extensive data on the safety and tolerability of the COVID-19 vaccines approved in Germany are now available, so that there is no longer any need to maintain a minimum interval between the application of COVID-19 vaccines and other inactivated vaccines. If the administration of different inactivated vaccines is indicated, they can be given simultaneously.

In the opinion of the STIKO, a minimum interval of 14 days should be maintained between the COVID-19 vaccination and other vaccinations with non-vaccines.

Where can I get medical questions answered about vaccination?

Please discuss medical questions with your family physician or specialist. The state government provides the logistics for the vaccinations. We cannot and should not answer medical questions. Before vaccination in a doctor's office or by a mobile vaccination team, a detailed educational discussion with a doctor takes place. The same applies to pharmacists who perform the vaccination. Here you can get expert information on your questions. After the interview, you are still free to decide whether or not you want to be vaccinated.

What do I need to bring to the vaccination?

Please bring your vaccination certificate and an identification document, such as your ID card, with you to the vaccination appointment.

How often do I need to be vaccinated?

For all vaccines currently used in Germany (Comirnaty from BioNTech, Spikevax from Moderna, Vaxzevria from AstraZeneca, COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen from Janssen-Cilag and Nuvaxovid from Novavax), two vaccinations are required for complete basic immunization. The intervals between the first and second vaccination may vary with the different vaccines.

How do I get the appointment for the second or booster vaccination??

Since the 15. November 2021, the state, together with the counties, has created a variety of vaccination services, including additional Mobile Vaccination Teams, which travel to vaccination bases in all urban and rural counties.

On Keeping Up-BW.Here you can find current vaccination campaigns in your area. It is also worth taking a look at the websites of your city or district every now and then, since vaccination campaigns are also announced here.

If you do not have a GP practice, you can use the search mask of the Kassenarztliche Vereinigung Baden-Wurttemberg to find a GP practice in your area to make an appointment for vaccination. When making an appointment, it is important that the minimum interval between the first and second vaccination, as well as for the booster vaccination, is observed and also that you make the appointment with the doctor's office two weeks before the vaccination is due if possible. This is the only way the doctor's office can order the appropriate amounts of vaccine and also group vaccination appointments to avoid wasting vaccine.

Who pays for the vaccination?

Vaccination is free for citizens regardless of their insurance status. The cost of the vaccine is covered by the federal government. The state of Baden-Wurttemberg bears the costs of operating the vaccination bases, but these are reimbursed by the federal government in the amount of up to 50 percent in accordance with the Corona vaccination ordinance.

Who determines which vaccine is administered?

Status: 22. February 2022

Each COVID-19 vaccine goes through an approval process reviewed by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI).

Currently, five vaccines are licensed in Germany: the mRNA vaccines from BioNTech and Moderna, and the vector vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson& Johnson as well as Novavax's protein vaccine. The vector vaccines from Astra Zeneca. Johnson& Johnson are regularly recommended for people 60 years and older. Moderna's mRNA vaccine is administered in accordance with the recommendation of the Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) of 18. November 2021 for persons 30 years of age and older. Not recommended for pregnant women. The vaccine from Novavax is used in accordance with the STIKO recommendation of 15. February 2022 from the age of 18. Also not recommended for pregnant women. BioNTech's mRNA vaccine is not subject to any restrictions. Is also available for adolescents from 12 resp. Approved in age-appropriate formulation for children 5 years and older. You can be vaccinated with any available vaccine, subject to the relevant licensing and recommended age limits and other medical indications.

Detailed information about the vaccines can be found on the homepage of the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut: Paul-Ehrlich-Institut: COVID-19 vaccines

Will I be informed about possible side effects before vaccination??

Yes, a detailed consultation and anamnesis will take place. You can also discuss your open questions during the consultation.

Who carries out the vaccination?

Vaccination education is provided exclusively by physicians and appropriately trained pharmacists. The vaccination itself can also be delegated to medical assistants.

Do I have to be vaccinated?

No, there is currently no general obligation to vaccinate. Vaccination is voluntary.

However, since the age of 16. March 2022 a facility-based vaccination requirement. Employees of, for example, clinics, nursing homes, doctors' offices and emergency services must provide their employer with proof of completed vaccination, proof of recovery, or a doctor's certificate that they cannot be vaccinated.

What if I do not have health insurance?

People who do not have health insurance can also be vaccinated free of charge. Please bring an identity card or other official document showing the date of birth to the vaccination.

Are there any medical indications that make vaccination not possible?

Vaccination should be avoided in the case of a febrile infection (above 38.5°C). In addition, the marketing authorization-relevant. Recommended age limits to be observed. With the exception of the vaccines from BioNTech and Moderna, all other vaccines used in the EU are currently only approved for use from the age of 18. The risk is also increased in the event of hypersensitivity to a vaccine component. So-called contraindications to vaccination and allergies should be communicated to the physician during the pre-vaccination educational interview.

Do I have to have a COVID-19 test before the vaccination??

No, as long as you do not show any symptoms it is not necessary.

Should I be vaccinated if I have already survived a SARS-CoV-2 infection??

Due to the immunity after a SARS-CoV-2 infection, one vaccination dose is sufficient for the basic immunization of immunocompromised persons, since high antibody levels can already be achieved, which would not be further increased by a second vaccine dose. If there is serological evidence of infection (antibody testing), administration of the single dose of vaccine is possible as early as four weeks after the end of COVID-19 symptoms.

In addition, the Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends that these individuals receive a booster vaccination at an interval of at least three months after the previous vaccination.

What if I test positive after a first dose of vaccine?

The Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends that persons who have had a confirmed SARS-CoV-2 infection less than four weeks after the first dose of vaccine receive a second dose of vaccine three months or more after the infection as part of basic immunization. If there is serologic evidence of infection (antibody testing), administration of a vaccine dose is possible as early as four weeks apart from laboratory diagnosis. If the infection occurred four or more weeks apart from the previous single vaccination, no further vaccination is needed for basic immunization.

In addition, the Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) recommends that these individuals receive a booster vaccination at an interval of at least three months after their previous infection.

Can I be vaccinated if I am currently ill with COVID-19??

If you have a known and acute infection, you should go into isolation and refrain from vaccination for the time being. Vaccination is not a reason to break quarantine/isolation. However, the tolerability of the vaccination is not negatively affected by a possibly hidden acute infection.

Is it enough if I get vaccinated once?

For all vaccines currently used in Germany (Comirnaty from BioNTech, Spikevax from Moderna, Vaxzevria from AstraZeneca and COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen from Janssen-Cilag and Nuvaxovid from Novavax) two vaccinations are necessary for a complete basic immunization.

People who have already received a first dose of AstraZeneca's vaccine or Janssen-Cilag's vaccine should receive an mRNA vaccine such as Biontech or Moderna as a second vaccine dose, regardless of age.

Due to the change in the recommendation of the Permanent Vaccination Commission (STIKO) of 1. July 2021, the vaccination intervals were shortened with the aim of containing the more contagious delta variant.

The STIKO currently indicates the following intervals between the two required vaccine doses as a recommendation:

– at least three weeks for BioNTech/Pfizer, – at least four weeks for Moderna, – at least four weeks for the combination of AstraZeneca or Janssen-Cilag and mRNA vaccine (BioNTech or Moderna), – at least three weeks for Novavax.

Should I continue to wear a mask and keep my distance after vaccination??

The vaccination protection takes effect approximately two to three weeks after the second vaccination – and even after that you are still required to comply with the AHA+L rules. Despite immunity, you may still be able to transmit the virus – so the regulations and recommendations still apply for now, for everyone's protection.

May I accompany someone to the vaccination if he or she is dependent on assistance??

Yes, however, only the person being accompanied will receive a vaccination.

Do I have to stay on site after vaccination?

Yes, you will remain under medical observation for 15 to 30 minutes after the vaccination in a separate waiting area for safety reasons. So plan for appropriate time at the vaccination appointment.

In the rare case of an allergic reaction to the vaccine, this can be treated directly on site.

What happens if the vaccination center forgets to enter the vaccination in the vaccination certificate??

The obligation to document vaccinations is legally anchored in § 22 of the Infection Protection Act (IfSG). According to the wording of § 22 para. 1 IfSG states that the person authorized to carry out protective vaccinations must immediately document each protective vaccination in a vaccination card or, if the vaccination card is not presented, in a vaccination certificate (vaccination documentation).

The person who is responsible for the vaccination is obliged to document the vaccination. This is usually the doctor who will perform the vaccination. Also, the follow-up option contained in the third sentence of paragraph 2 does not relieve the person responsible for vaccination of the above obligation to document vaccination (if necessary, then in a vaccination certificate). If the person responsible for vaccination does not document a vaccination, or does not document it correctly, completely or in time, this constitutes an administrative offense (Section 73 (1a) No. 8 IfSG).

If you need your digital vaccination certificate again due to loss or damage, you can contact the [email protected] mailbox, stating your surname, first name, date of birth, date and place of vaccinations.bwl.en turn.

If I have been vaccinated with two different vaccines, am I considered fully vaccinated in the EU??

The Robert Koch Institute, respectively the office of the Permanent Vaccination Commission (STIKO) has published on 26. April 2021 confirms that even people under 60 years of age with a heterologous vaccination series, i.e. a first dose of Astra Zeneca and a second dose of mRNA vaccine, are considered fully vaccinated in Germany.

On the pages of the European Commission, with regard to recognition, it says: Member States should ie vaccination certificates regardless of the type of COVID-19 vaccine.

When Member States accept vaccination certificates to lift certain restrictions for public health reasons such as compulsory testing or quarantine, they must recognize vaccination certificates ied under the EU COVID digital certification system under the same conditions. However, this obligation only applies to vaccines for which an EU-wide authorization has been granted. However, Member States are free to recognize certificates for vaccinations with vaccines approved at national level or by the World Health Organization (WHO).

From the 1. February 2022 EU vaccination certificates of basic immunization without booster vaccination after nine months are no longer valid.

What to do if side effects occur?

As with any vaccination, vaccination reactions and side effects may occur after the Corona vaccination. Vaccination reactions can usually occur shortly after vaccination or even after a few days.

If health problems occur after the vaccination, you should immediately contact your family doctor, and in urgent cases or outside of opening hours, the emergency medical service or the rescue service at 112. Side effects can be reported to the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) by the person him/herself or via the family doctor.

In addition, the Paul Ehrlich Institute provides the app SafeVac2 for monitoring side effects.

In case of severe side effects or suspicion of a vaccination complication, the attending physician is also obliged to report the case to the responsible public health department. This is for monitoring purposes. Safety of the vaccines used.
