Vaccination: Advice Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Vaccination is one of the most important measures to prevent disease. For example, some diseases no longer occur, or only very rarely, as people have been vaccinated to a large extent.

Before vaccines are approved, efficacy and safety must be demonstrated in studies. The independent Standing Commission on Vaccination (STIKO) then examines who recommends vaccination in Germany and when it should be administered most sensibly. The individual advice provided by your doctor or the competent body is based on these recommendations.

Documents may be required. Please contact the appropriate body.
