Covid-19

AstraZeneca is now freely available for online booking!

We can only offer BioNTech vaccinations to our current patients!

Unfortunately we are currently unable to accept any new patients!

 

 

Important current information and links (as of 17/05/2021):

 

AstraZeneca vaccinations can now be freely booked online! This unfortunately doesn´t mean that you have become a current patient of ours yet. Appointments for new patients for any other issue apart from AstraZeneca-vaccines will only be available again in autumn.

We always find out on Thursdays how many vaccination doses we will receive the following week, and accordingly appointments are available online - or all booked! Try again next week!

Considering the currently available data concerning myocarditis in young men after BioNTech, AstraZeneca might actually be the safest available vaccine for young men at the time being.

We are now allowed to give the second vaccination with AstraZeneca less than 12 weeks after the first vaccination. However, as the effect is much better if the interval is longer, we recommend keeping the interval as long as possible - at least 8 weeks. When booking online, an interval of 10-12 weeks is possible. We can change your 2nd appointment on the day of your 1st vaccination here on site.

 

BioNTech: The Senate Department for Health Berlin has announced that starting with today (16th of May) the prioritisation for all vaccines will be lifted. We are generally quite happy about this move - maybe some time soon we can return to being a practice again instead of acting like a call center ;) Nevertheless, there is still a severe shortage in BioNTech doses and the The Kassenärztliche Vereinigung of Berlin has pronounced that doctors are still bound to vaccinate patients with prioritization first. Therefore, we will continue to invite for BioNTech vaccinations - and will focus on prioritized young women with pre-conditions who have no other, safe vaccination option at the time being.

We recommend that all healthy men and anyone over 60 book an appointment with AstraZeneca - you can do so online! Even when we finally get enough BioNTech (you will then be able to book these appointments online, too), we will not be able to vaccinate everyone at once and it may take several weeks before you can get an appointment for BioNTech with us! If you have a vaccination code, also try booking in a vaccination center.

 

Please understand that it is impossible for us to answer the flood of emails on the subject of vaccination individually!

 

Pregnant women can contact their gynaecologist to have him/her write a certificate for two selected family members to get a vaccination. With the certificate in hands, you can send us an email and get vaccinated by us - if you are a patient of ours already.
