Another difficult autumn and winter seems to be imminent. Not only the Federal Minister of Health Jens Spahn recommends a booster vaccination for many who currently already have full vaccination protection. But when can you get the booster vaccination?
So that you don’t worry your head while doing the math, an online calculator answers the question of when you should get the third vaccination at the earliest.
Booster vaccination: make an appointment using the online calculator
In Germany everyone has the right to a booster vaccination. So you don’t have to belong to a risk group or a certain age group to be eligible for the “Booster”. But you don’t have to rush to the doctor or the nearest vaccination station immediately. The booster vaccination should give it at least six months after the second vaccination. Anyone who has only received one dose of “Johnson & Johnson” does not have to wait six months, but can come to a booster after the fourth week. An earlier refresher should only be given in exceptional cases and after consultation with a doctor. So that you don’t have to calculate and strain the calendar, you can do the Determine the earliest date for the third vaccination using the online calculator. There are various online services for this, which work on a similar principle:
