New Covid 19 vaccination recommendation of the STIKO

Since 18th August 22 the STIKO advises a second booster vac (the 4th in total) 6 months after the first one (3rd in total) for all:

  • above 5 years of age with chronic conditions e.g. asthma, COPD, diatebes mellitus, heart, liver and kidney diseases etc.
  • above 60 years independent from medical history
  • residents in nursing home
  • employees of medical and care facilities

and other personal groups.

For the very elderly a 5th vac could be applied 6 months after the 4th one.

mRNA vaccines (Biontec or Spikevax) should be used for the boostering.

In addition the STIKO advises explicitly not to wait for the announced, but not yet available new adapted covid 19 vaccine.

Herodikos plus: A new online exercise programme against back or knee pain.

For patients above 18 years of age with acute back or knee pain (up to 6 months duration) there is a new online training programme. You get a personalised exercise regime from a Herodikos physiotherapist, do the exercise on your own supported by a Herodikos app and will have a follow-up appointment every fortnight with him or her.

The exercise programme lasts 3 to 6 months. It is free of charge for members of the health insurrance companies: AOK Niedersachsen, HEK, pronova BKK and TK.

Please contact us for further information and registration.

Electronical sick note (eAU)

From 1st July 2022 the electronical sick note is introduced to all surgeries in Germany. The sick patient obtains a paper attestation for himself and another one for his employer.

Simultaneously a further sick note is transfered digitally to his health insurance company. So the patient does not have to inform his health insurance company himself unless the electronical system is out of order for the time being. In this case a third paper attestation for the health insurance is handed out to the patient.
