What do I need to know about the vaccination?

Every vaccine in Switzerland needs to be authorised by Swissmedic – the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products. For a vaccine to obtain authorisation, it has to fulfill high standards in terms of safety, efficacy and quality. Swissmedic is responsible for the scientific examination and authorisation of vaccines in accordance with these high standards. The Covid-19 vaccines were examined thoroughly and authorised on the basis of fulfilling these high standards.

1. Is the vaccination safe and effective?

2. Who should be vaccinated?

The Vaccination Centre Zug follows the recommendations of the Federal Vaccination Commission and the FOPH. You can find more information under this link.

3. How is the vaccination given and when am I protected?

4. Do side effects occur?

In general, the risk of severe side effects is much lower than the risk of a severe course of disease after infection with the coronavirus. According to study results, the vaccines are well tolerated. The usual side effects of vaccinations can occur. Local reactions such as pain at the injection site, fatigue and headaches are common side effects. Other, less frequent side effects have been observed. As a rule, the side effects are mild to moderate and disappear after a few days.

Booster vaccination for people aged 16 and over

First dose (basic immunisation) for people aged 16 and over

Information on further booster vaccinations

Due to the vaccinations administered to date and the high proportion of people who have recovered, there is a high level of basic immunity in Switzerland. This protects against severe courses of the disease. However, a second booster vaccination is still recommended, especially for people at particular risk. This group includes everyone over 65 years of age. It also includes people between 16 and 64 years of age who have an increased individual risk of contracting the disease, for example due to a previous illness or pregnancy.

There is also a general recommendation for all other people between the ages of 16 and 64 without risk factors. For them, a booster vaccination makes sense after individual consideration and decision if they want to reduce the risk of an infection or a rare severe course of the disease

For the further booster vaccinations, adapted mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are used, which provide better protection against the Omikron variant. However, the protein-based vaccine Nuvaxovid from Novavax can also be administered on request.

Flu vaccination

The vaccination center also offers flu vaccination for people over 65. There is no need to register in advance.

People who have registered for the booster vaccination can also be vaccinated against influenza at the same appointment.
