Current recommendation for covid 19 vaccination of the STIKO

Healthy infants, children and adolescents under 18 years of age do not require a covid 19 vaccination.

Healthy adults between 18 and 59 are advised to have a basic immunisation against covid 19 virus. This consists of two jabs and a further antigen contact. The antigen contact can either be a third vaccination or an infection.

An annual booster shot should be applied to:

Persons with increased risk for severe infection: above 60 years, older then 6 months with chronic diseases, inhabitants of nursing home,

Persons with increased risk for SARS-CoV-2 infection: medical professionals and care workers with immediate contact to patients,

Family members and close contact persons of patients under immunsuppressive therapy who themselves can not be for sure protected by covid vaccination.

The booster jab should be given a year after the last vaccination or infection.
