Vaccinations are the best way to protect oneself and others from infectious diseases. They also make a significant contribution to the containment of pandemics. The vaccinations are free of charge for citizens, regardless of their health insurance status. There is no obligation to be vaccinated – vaccination against the coronavirus is voluntary.
With the development and approval of various vaccines against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, many misleading and false claims about vaccination have circulated. The fact check of the federal government provides information and clarifies the situation.
Eligibility and documents required for vaccination
Every person who is insured in Germany in a statutory or private health insurance scheme is entitled to be vaccinated. The same applies to persons who have their domicile or usual place of residence in Germany or are employed in Germany.
The following documents must be brought for the vaccination:
- Proof of identity
- Identity card, passport or residence permit
- In the case of the vaccination of minors who do not have their own identity card, please bring an official document that allows the identification of the child (e.g. birth certificate, registration certificate or child identity card)
- The vaccination centers also offer vaccinations to persons who, for example, do not have health insurance or a valid residence permit. An official identification document is not required for vaccination but is a mandatory prerequisite for the creation of a digital vaccination certificate.
- Signed information sheet (also available on site)
- Completed medical history form (also available on site)
- Signed consent form (also available on site)
- Vaccination certificate (if available)
- Vaccination mineurs: Declaration of consent of the legal guardian. Children under 16 must also be accompanied by a legal guardian.
All of the vaccination offers are available as a first, a second or a booster vaccination.
All persons under 30 and pregnant women can be vaccinated with Comirnaty from BioNTech/Pfizer according to the recommendation of the so called Permanent Vaccination Commission (Ständige Impfkommission = STIKO).
