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.
