Booster vaccinations (Booster)
What are booster vaccinations?
Booster vaccination is an additional administration of one dose of an approved mRNA vaccine. The goal of booster vaccination is to increase vaccine protection. This is particularly important in certain groups of people who may experience a reduced or diminished immune response following a COVID-19 vaccination series. For more information on booster vaccination, see this article.
Which vaccine is used for booster vaccination?
For the booster vaccination, an mRNA vaccine should be used in any case, i.e. BioNTech or Moderna. The Stiko recommends: If possible, the same mRNA vaccine should be used as for the second vaccination. This is because only BioNTech or only Moderna was used in the manufacturers' studies that were important for the Stiko's recommendation. More about the vaccine Monderna here.
However, the Stiko also writes: Ultimately, it does not matter which of these two vaccines is injected. Moderna or BioNTech - it doesn't make much difference. There are only two exceptions: All people under 30 and pregnant women should be boosted only with BioNTech's vaccine. The background to this is new safety data on myocarditis and pericarditis, which were observed more frequently in young people after vaccination with Moderna's Spikevax® (Vaccine Moderna) vaccine than after vaccination with BioNTech/Pfizer. This means that Spikevax® (Vaccine Moderna) from Moderna is now only given to people over 30 years of age.
Booster vaccination also for 12- to 17-year-olds?
In view of the rapid spread of the Omikron variant, the Standing Commission on Vaccination (Stiko) now also recommends Covid 19 booster vaccination for all children and adolescents aged 12 years and older (as of Jan. 13, 2022). The third vaccine dose with the Biontech/Pfizer vaccine should be administered at a minimum interval of three months from the previous vaccination, the Stiko, based at the Robert Koch Institute, announced today. The protection against corona infection by the currently available vaccines decreases after a few months, even in the age group of 12 to 17 years. With the Omikron variant the effectiveness of the vaccination is besides clearly smaller. Previously, the Stiko had recommended booster vaccination only for all adults aged 18 and older. Read more in the press release.
Appointment for booster or third vaccination
Booster vaccinations can be obtained from general practitioners, specialists and company doctors and at all Jena vaccination centers (AbbeCampus, Volksbad and Ziegesarstraße 19) as well as at the practices in Jena mentioned in the article above .
Please note that the telephone hotline may be overloaded.
Advice on vaccinations for children under 12 years of age
How does vaccination for children differ from vaccination for adults?
Vaccinating children five years and older will take a lot of time. Because smaller children can't just hold out their arm and that's it. Here, the doctor always needs an assistant and twice as much time as with adults or adolescents.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask your pediatrician for advice now.
Child vaccination: yes or no?
If you are undecided about vaccinating your children, we recommend the information page of the Federal Ministry of Health.
Recommendation of the STIKO
The STIKO has updated its COVID-19 vaccination recommendation and recommends vaccination against COVID-19 for children aged 5 to 11 years with pre-existing diseases. If individually desired, children without pre-existing diseases can also be vaccinated.
Weighing all available data to date, STIKO recommends COVID-19 vaccination for children aged 5 to 11 years with various pre-existing conditions. In addition, vaccination is recommended for children in whose environment there are contacts with a high risk of a severe COVID-19 course, who themselves cannot be protected or can only be protected insufficiently by vaccination (e.g. the very elderly as well as immunosuppressed persons). In addition, 5 to 11 year old children without previous illnesses can also be vaccinated against COVID-19 after appropriate medical information, if there is an individual wish of the children and parents or guardians.
In addition, the STIKO once again and emphatically points out that parents, teachers, educators and other caregivers of children and adolescents should urgently take advantage of the vaccination offer including booster vaccination.
Advice for vaccinated and recovered persons
Who is considered vaccinated and recovered?
Who is considered vaccinated?
An overview of requirements for full vaccination protection is shown by the Paul Ehrlich Institute.
One must be in possession of a vaccination card issued to the person. (and should also carry an identification document).
Who is considered recovered?
People are considered recovered if their Corona illness occurred at least 28 days and not more than 3 months ago. Proof of an antibody test for convalescents is not sufficient.
The recovered person must have proof with them. This can be a positive PCR test (also at least 28, max 3 months old) or a medical or official certificate that is based on an infection that has been passed through by means of PCR.
The Health Department sends a certificate to all recovered persons reported in the Jena statistics, which can be used as proof.
Rights and obligations of vaccinated and recovered persons
In principle, vaccinated and recovered persons are treated the same as negatively tested persons.
In principle, the distance and hygiene rules continue to apply to vaccinated and recovered persons. This means that a minimum distance of 1.5 m and the wearing of mouth and nose coverings are still mandatory.
Lifting of the contact restriction, i.e. vaccinated or recovered persons from several households can meet. Vaccinated and convalescents are not considered another household when meeting privately, meaning if a household is allowed to meet with another person, additional vaccinated persons may join them.
The curfew is lifted for vaccinated and convalescent persons, which means that they are allowed to be out of their own home/accommodation even between 22:00 and 05:00.
Vaccinated and recovered persons who are contacts of a positive-tested person and have no symptoms do not have to be quarantined.
Vaccinated and recovered persons do not need to quarantine when returning from a risk area. However, please refer to the specific regulations under Quarantine for Those Entering and Returning. When returning from a high incidence area or virus variant area, quarantine is still required.
Vaccinated and recovered persons are not required to present a negative rapid test (but must present their vaccination card) wherever there is an obligation to present a negative rapid test (hairdresser, Click&Meet, attendance at an event or at face-to-face classes a university, including after-school and emergency care).
At what point are vaccinated people really protected?
For basic immunization, persons must be vaccinated twice. After the second vaccination, it takes about 14 days until the protection is complete. Whether, as with influenza, vaccination must be given every year is still open.

General information about vaccination
Who is responsible for the vaccinations?
Fundamentally, the Federal Ministry has presented a concept for the largest vaccination campaign through the National Vaccination Strategy. The state of Thuringia has also developed the Ärmel Hoch - Thüringen gegen Corona campaign specifically for the state.
The Ministry of Health is also responsible for organizing the vaccinations - from the scheduling of appointments to the actual vaccination itself is handled exclusively by the state of Thuringia. To this end, the state has commissioned the Thuringian Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (KVT) with the organization. Vaccination Thuringia serves as a central information platform. The municipalities, including the city of Jena, have only the task of supporting the provision of local vaccination centers (premises).
Are there any findings on possible side effects?
As with any vaccination, vaccine reactions and side effects may occur after COVID-19 vaccination.
The most common side effects to date are pain at the injection site, fatigue and headaches. An overview of all vaccination reactions and side effects that occurred during the test phase can be found at the RKI under the item "Efficacy and Safety".
The Paul Ehrlich Institute provides weekly information about vaccine side effects that occur during the current vaccination phase. You can also report any side effects you experience there.
Who is liable for vaccine damage?
The Federal Ministry of Health writes the following about this:
Side effects with vaccines are rare, but can never be completely ruled out. The Paul Ehrlich Institute, which is responsible, closely monitors any side effects that occur. Suspected cases of vaccine complications can be reported directly to the PEI via the website. Anyone can report there if he or she suspects a connection with the vaccination. Physicians, pharmacists and companies are required to make the reports. In addition, a report can also be made via the PEI's specially developed app, Safe Vac App 2.0. This app is available in the app stores.
If an injury occurs as a result of the use of the vaccine, depending on the case, liability of the pharmaceutical company, among others, may be considered on the basis of various legal foundations. Liability regulations can arise from the German Medicines Act, the German Product Liability Act and the general liability regulations of the German Civil Code. The Infection Protection Act (Section 60 (1) sentence 1 IfSG) also specifies precisely when someone can file an application for care under the Federal Care Act. This is the case, for example, if someone has suffered damage to their health as a result of a vaccination that was publicly recommended by a competent state authority.
Where can I go with questions?
For health questions concerning vaccination, the family doctor is the first address. Doctors who staff the vaccination centers also conduct consultations.
