No rapid test for coronavirus is performed at the vaccination center. However, your body temperature may be measured. Persons with a raised temperature are not allowed to enter the vaccination center and must make a new appointment. Accompanying persons must always wait outside the building. This does not apply to those accompanying minors under the age of 16 being vaccinated.
Vaccination against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus consists of one or two vaccinations, depending on the vaccine used. The second vaccination is given after three weeks. Both appointments are already scheduled when the appointment is made. One vaccination appointment generally lasts up to one hour.
Before the actual vaccination, vaccinees have the opportunity to ask questions. The vaccine is then administered intramuscularly – usually by injection into the upper arm.
Vaccinated persons should allow for a 15-minute follow-up period in the vaccination center. A separate room with seating is available for this purpose.
