Service Description

Vaccinations are one of the most important measures to prevent diseases. Some diseases no longer occur, or only very rarely, because most people have been vaccinated.

Before vaccines are approved, their effectiveness and safety must be proven in studies. The independent Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) then examines who is recommended to be vaccinated in Germany and when it makes the most sense to administer it. Individual advice from your doctor or the public health service is based on these recommendations.


Who should I contact?
  • To your doctor or
  • to the district/city (public health service).
Which documents are required?

Vaccination certificate

What are the fees?

There are usually no fees for vaccinations recommended by the STIKO, as these are covered by the health insurance company, the districts/district-free cities or by the employer for company reasons.

All other vaccinations, in particular vaccinations for protection during private travel to areas with a particular risk of infection (e.g. yellow fever), are subject to a fee.

What else should I know?

Information on the Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) can be found on the website of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI).

Information on vaccination protection and vaccination can be found on the website of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Science and Equality of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (MSGWG).
