The Covid-19 vaccination protects you from the coronavirus. Besides the behaviour and hygiene rules, the Covid-19 vaccination is hitherto the most effective means of reducing severe cases of the disease and deaths in Switzerland, which is the primary objective of vaccination. The Covid-19 vaccination could thus prevent Switzerland's health system from being overwhelmed.

Where can I get my vaccination?

The vaccination centre is on the premises of the former spinning works (“Spinnerei”) in Baar and is being run jointly by Zug Cantonal Hospital and the Hirslanden AndreasKlinik. Bus routes 3, 31 and 32 to the "Paradies" stop. Parking is also available.

The entire vaccination center is barrier-free accessible. In addition to two designated disabled parking spaces, wheelchairs and a disabled toilet are available. Our staff on site is also happy to help.

The vaccination is open to people residing in the canton of Zug and only possible after registering in advance, which can be accomplished online on this website. The vaccination centre is open seven days a week from 7 am to 9 pm. If you need help with registration, please call +41 (0)41 531 48 00. This helpline  is available seven days a week from 9am to noon and 1 pm to 6 pm. If you have any questions about the Covid-19-vaccination, the information hotline of the Federal Office of Public Health   is open every day, between 6 am and 11 pm: +41 (0)58 377 88 92

Institutions such as care homes will be served by a mobile vaccination team. Care home residents are asked to check with their home staff about registering for the vaccination.

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 Canton of Zug is following the vaccination strategy of the Swiss government. Accordingly, particularly vulnerable people should be vaccinated first. At the moment, people aged 45 and older as well as adults with chronic conditions with the highest risk or a special risk are vaccinated. The chronic condition must be confirmed by a doctor. The confirmation form for chronic conditions with the highest risk can be found here and the confirmation form for chronic conditions with special risk here.
The corona vaccination is not currently recommended for pregnant women and people aged less than 16 years due to a lack of data. People with confirmed allergies or who have shown an allergic reaction to vaccinations in the past should obtain medical advice. People with verified symptomatic Covid-19 disease are advised to wait 3 months after the infection before being vaccinated, although this is already possible once the symptoms have subsided.


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

4. When am I protected?

For full protection, you need two injections in the upper arm, administered three to four weeks apart. Both vaccinations must consist of the same vaccine. The anticipated immunisation effect begins about two weeks after the first dose and is complete one week after the second dose. It is currently not yet known how long the immunisation effect will last – several months or years – and whether a booster will be necessary.

5. Do side effects occur?

As a general rule, the risk of severe side effects is far less than the risk of severe illness after infection with the coronavirus. The study results indicate that the vaccines are well tolerated. Typical vaccination side effects may occur; such as pain at the injection site, tiredness and headaches. These usually disappear after a few days. Less frequent side effects can include muscle and joint pains, fever and swelling around the injection site. These reactions are usually mild to moderate and do not last long. In the studies, older people showed fewer side effects.

6. What do I need to bear in mind after the vaccination?

As with all vaccinations, there is the risk of an allergic reaction, although this is rare. After the vaccination, please stay at the vaccination location for at least 15 minutes. Although the study results indicate that the corona vaccination offers effective protection from the Covid-19 disease and from severe cases of the disease (around 95%), you should continue to consistently heed the generally recommended hygiene and behaviour rules (wearing a mask, social distancing, washing hands). There is still no scientific certainty as to whether the vaccination also prevents infection and resulting transmission.

7. Declaration of Consent

To guarantee that your vaccination appointment goes smoothly, please read and, as far as possible, complete the Declaration of Consent (download) in advance and bring it with you to your vaccination appointment. The staff in the vaccination centre will gladly help you with any questions about the content when you come for your appointment. The Declaration of Consent can also be completed and signed in the vaccination centre.

You will be met at the entrance control point of the vaccination centre. You must present your personal identity card and your appointment confirmation. You can then enter the vaccination centre and go via reception to the check-in, where you present your health insurance card. Any other administrative details will be clarified at that time. You will then be asked to go to one of the vaccination cubicles where you will hand in your written Declaration of Consent (see 7. Declaration of Consent) as is usual for vaccinations. If you have not done so already, you will have an opportunity to complete the corresponding form in the vaccination centre. You will now receive your Covid-19 vaccination. You cannot choose between the approved vaccines. Following the vaccination, you will go to the waiting room where you remain for at least 15 minutes under medical supervision. After this time, you may leave the vaccination centre. You should expect the vaccination appointment to take about 40 minutes.


Individuals with a chronic condition are required to present an appropriate form. This must be signed and stamped by a doctor and brought to the first vaccination appointment. You can find the form for chronic conditions with special risk here and the form for chronic conditions with the highest risk here.

Healthcare workers with patient contact and caregivers of persons with a special risk are required to bring a corresponding confirmation to the first vaccination appointment. You can find the corresponding form here.

Currently, all available vaccination dates are fully booked. If you are in the current vaccination group, you can still register. You will then receive a vaccination appointment as soon as sufficient vaccine is available.
