Get your vaccination now in the Canton of Zug.

Protect yourself and your loved ones.

In this way you can protect your own health.

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. Paid parking spaces are 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 service offered by the Canton of Zug is open to all individuals over the age of 12, regardless of their place of residence. The vaccination center is open on Wednesdays and Fridays between 2 pm and 6.30 pm. For assistance with registration and information, please call the hotline 041 531 48 00 is available (Mo-Fr: 9.00-12.00 / 13.30-17.00, Sa/Su: 9.00-12.00 / 13.00-15.00). For all questions regarding the Covid 19 vaccination, the Infoline of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) is also available at 058 377 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 vaccination service offered by the canton of Zug is open to all persons over the age of 12, regardless of their place of residence.

Covid-19 vaccination can be made available to all pregnant women willing to be vaccinated, based on the assessment of various international expert groups and the data now available on vaccination in pregnancy . People with confirmed allergies or who have shown an allergic reaction to vaccinations in the past should obtain medical advice. 

Vaccination is also recommended when you are recovered. Data indicate that you are protected from re-infection for at least three months after infection. For better, long-term protection, we recommend vaccination within six months of infection. Starting 4 weeks after a confirmed coronavirus infection, one vaccine dose is sufficient. You may choose not to receive the second vaccine dose.


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. Four months after the second shot a booster shot is recommended.

6. 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.

The vaccination does not lead to any changes in the genetic material and does not affect the fertility of the vaccinated persons.

7. 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.

8. 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.

More information about the corona vaccination is available on the FOPH website:

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 can 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.


A booster vaccination is recommended for all persons over 12 years of age whose last vaccination was at least 4 months ago.

If and when a booster vaccination is needed is still unclear. However, individuals with a weak immune system (severe immunodeficiency) can already receive a 3rd vaccination today if required. These individuals are asked to clarify the procedure regarding the 3rd vaccination with the attending physician. For a 3rd vaccination due to severe immunodeficiency, a medical referral is required (download form).
