Covid-19

Current information and links (as of 17/10/2021):

 

 

The STIKO now recommends booster vaccination with an mRNA vaccine for the following groups of people:

- persons immunocompromised by medication or disease

- all persons over 70

- people in close contact with persons particularly at risk from corona

- medical personnel

- Persons who have only received one vaccination with the Johnson&Johnson vaccine (in this case as soon as possible, but at least 4 weeks after the vaccination).

This should take place 6 months after the 2nd vaccination (the EMA recommends this as early as 4 weeks after the 2nd vaccination - we adhere to the recommendations of the STIKO!). If this applies to you and you are a patient at our practice, please contact us by phone to make an appointment for vaccination with BioNTech. Also those patients of ours who have not yet been vaccinated for any reason can contact us by phone to book.

 

In the meantime, simultaneous vaccination against Corona and other diseases has become possible if desired, e.g. against influenza. 

 

Of course we offer all the other important vaccines - i.e. against the flu, measles, tetanus and many travel vaccinations. Please book online!

Covid-19 Practices in Berlin

Places to test yourself for Corona in Berlin

 

General quarantine order of the Pankow district - every category 1 contact with a Covid-19 patient must immediately go into a 14-day quarantine according to this regulation, even without an instruction of the public health department. Testing is only carried out if symptoms occur or in certain constellations. You are obliged to fill out an online form of your local Gesundheitsamt to let them know of your situation.

 

A sick note by the doctor is only possible if you have symptoms!

If you have no symptoms but have to be quarantined, you/your employer are entitled to compensation for loss of earnings during this period. The letter from the Gesundheitsamt that you will receive (if you filled out the online form mentioned above) will give you and your employer more details about it.
