STIKO recommends a second booster vaccination for those over 70, medical staff and people at risk of health. Some federal states offer them for everyone – Schleswig-Holstein, for example. Our author did the practical test.

Actually it’s not my turn, not 70 years old, don’t live in the home, don’t work in a medical facility or nursing home. No immunodeficiency, no particular health hazard. All of these are prerequisites for getting a fourth vaccination, i.e. the second booster. But in Schleswig-Holstein, the federal state where I live, the fourth injection is also offered to those people who want it – if a doctor approves the vaccination.
