You have expressed an interest in a vaccination for COVID-19. Here, you will find all the key information about registration for the vaccination. Please read it carefully.
You must meet the following requirements in order to be vaccinated at the vaccination centre at the Congress Center Basel:
You are a person registered in Basel-Stadt
You are working in Basel-Stadt
If you belong to one of these target groups and are resident in the canton of Basel-Stadt, you are currently eligible for vaccination and are invited to register.
Are you less than 30 years of age?
Swissmedic and the Federal Commission for Vaccination (FCV) continuously evaluate the latest data and immediately adjust the authorisations and vaccination recommendations in the event of a change in the situation. Currently, for persons who would like to be vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine and who are under 30 years of age, the Corona vaccination as well as the booster vaccination are preferentially recommended with the vaccine Comirnaty ® from the manufacturer BioNTech Pfizer. The reason is that the very rare vaccination side effect of pericarditis occurs slightly more frequently in 12 to 29 year olds than in the older population (Spikevax /Moderna: about 19 cases per 100,000 vaccinations, Comirnaty /Pfizer/Biontech) about 6 cases per 100,000 vaccinations): The course is practically always benign.
Of course, you can keep your existing appointment for your vaccination as scheduled and the vaccine Spikevax® from the manufacturer Moderna also has the corresponding approval.
Attention: Cross-border commuters with or without health insurance in Switzerland are entitled to vaccinate and can register for vaccination.
To register, you must have a mobile phone number. If you do not have a mobile phone, you can use someone else’s mobile phone (e.g. a family member, friend, carer or neighbour). Only those who do not have a mobile phone number should register by calling 0800 555 655.
When you attend your first and second vaccination appointments, please bring the following full documents:
