New Corona Vaccine from Novavax starting March 4th

As many people as possible should get vaccinated against the Coronavirus. That is the recommendation of leading health institutes and health authorities worldwide.

Booster vaccination for 12- to 17-year-olds

The Standing Commission on Vaccination (Stiko) now recommends booster vaccinations for 12- to 17-year-olds. The reason for this is the rapid spread of the Omikron variant of the Corona virus. The children and adolescents receive the Biontech vaccine for the booster vaccination, i.e. the third vaccination. This is what the Robert Koch Institute writes on its website.

The third vaccination improves the protection again and reduces the probability… Read More
