Covid-19: Booster vaccination from 10 October 2022

14 ottobre 2022 – Both the number of reported cases of SARS-CoV-2 infections and the proportion of positive tests are currently increasing significantly. This development has also been observed in national wastewater monitoring, where the viral load measured in wastewater is rising. The number of intensive care beds occupied by Covid-19 patients and reported deaths remain at a very low level. A further increase in infections should be expected. Therefore, from Monday, 10 October 2022, a further Covid-19 booster will be available to the public. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the Federal Commission for Vaccination (FCV) recommend the booster primarily for persons at especially high risk and health professionals. However, the vaccine is also recommended for anyone aged over 16 years. The cantons are responsible for implementation. The costs for the booster will be covered by the Confederation.
