With a vaccination, you not only protect yourself, but also the people around you. A vaccination is a preventive measure and the most effective way to protect yourself against infectious diseases. A vaccination reduces your risk of becoming ill. Every year, the Federal Office of Public Health and an independent panel of experts, the Federal Vaccination Commission (EKIF), publish the Swiss Vaccination Schedule listing the recommended vaccinations for Switzerland, most of which are paid by the basic insurance provided by the health insurer.
Do you want to know if your vaccinations are up to date? You can consult your doctor or have your vaccination card digitised.
