Prevent infectious diseases

Communicable diseases (infections) can be prevented through vaccination, prophylaxis or education.

Protect yourself and others

Getting vaccinated is a personal choice. However, with a vaccination you protect not only yourself, but indirectly other people - especially newborns, pregnant women, old or chronically ill people. If you are vaccinated against a disease, you cannot infect others who cannot get vaccinated for medical reasons.

Vaccination side effects

Vaccinations are usually well tolerated. As with medications, side effects may occur. Swelling, redness and pain at the injection site are often the result, occasionally fever. These side effects disappear within a few days. Serious side effects or permanent damage are extremely rare.

 

You can be vaccinated against:
  • Diphtheria
  • Cervical cancer (HPV)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Meningitis and laryngitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)
  • Meningitis and blood poisoning caused by meningococci
  • Whooping cough (pertussis)
  • Polio (Poliomyelitis)
  • Pneumococcal pneumonia and blood poisoning
  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella
  • Seasonal flu
  • Tetanus (tetanus)
  • Chickenpox (varicella)
  • Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE)

In the health point, vaccinating is also teamwork. Vaccination is coordinated by Nicole Müller, MPA EFZ, who also carries out vaccination consultations in collaboration with our general practitioners. Vaccinations are administered by all of our practice assistants who are trained to do so.
