CORONA Vaccination

Get vaccinated against CORONA

The Kleefeld General Practice makes the COVID-19 vaccines available to everyone. Booster shots are available for everyone aged 12 and over. Vaccinated persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to all appointments.

 

Prepare for your COVID-19 vaccination appointment

What you should know before you come

You can help us to make your COVID-19 (CORONA) GP appointment smooth by reading these guidelines and tips before you arrive. We also explain what to expect with your first, second or booster dose.

 

On the day of your vaccination appointment

Who can come along

Adults 18 years and older are not allowed to bring visitors or children to their appointment, except for a caregiver if medically necessary. Vaccinated persons under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to all appointments.

 

Wear a face mask and short sleeves

Your face mask should cover your nose, mouth and chin at all times. Short sleeves or a loose-fitting top make it easier to expose the upper arm.

 

insurance card and your vaccination card

You must bring the insurance card with you. When you get your second dose or booster shot, also bring your COVID-19 (CORONA) vaccination card.

 

Arrive on time

Please do not arrive late or more than 10 minutes early to avoid disrupting other scheduled appointments. The entire appointment should last 30-45 minutes.

 

Maintain safe social distancing

For the duration of your appointment, we ask you to keep a minimum distance of 1.50 m between you, other patients and our staff.

 

What to expect with your first COVID-19 vaccination

 

Step 1: Register for your appointment upon arrival. One of our employees will ask you a series of questions and give you a vaccination certificate. Your card will include your name, date of birth, date, location and the type of vaccine you will receive (Pfizer or Moderna).

 

Step 2: You will be asked to wait your turn. When one of our clinical staff is ready to administer your injection, your name will be called.

 

Step 3: When your name is called, give your vaccination card to the clinical worker. They will ask you a few questions. Based on your answers, you will be asked to wait 15 or 30 minutes for observation after your shot. Administering your syringe takes just a few moments and you can choose which arm you want to use.

 

Step 4: Waiting for the observation is an incredibly important part of the process. We want to make sure you are not experiencing any side effects from COVID-19 Caccin that would make it unsafe for you.

 

Step 5: If you've received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, we'll schedule your second dose appointment before you leave. Depending on the type of vaccine you receive, this will be 21-28 days after your first dose. It is not known how much protection a single dose of COVID-19 vaccine provides, so it is important that you keep your second dose appointment as close to the recommended interval as possible. Your second dose will boost your immune response to COVID-19 and is necessary to achieve maximum immunity.

 

If you need to reschedule your second dose appointment due to necessary travel or medical intervention, call us on weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on 0511 537 872 or email us at info@hausarztpraxis-kleefeld. en

What to Expect for Your Second Dose (Pfizer and Moderna)

 

Sign up for your appointment upon arrival. One of our employees will ask you for your vaccination record. If you've lost your card, we can look up your record on the system. After you have checked in, your second dose appointment follows the same steps as your first dose appointment.

 

You may experience more side effects after your second dose than after the first dose, but not everyone. Mild side effects are common signs that your immune system is increasing its response to the virus. They usually go away within a day or two. Drinking plenty of water, getting a good night's sleep, and eating a balanced meal before your appointment can help reduce potential side effects.

 

It takes up to two weeks after your second dose to achieve maximum immunity. While vaccination prevents serious infection, it does not provide 100 percent immunity. You can help protect those waiting their turn to be vaccinated by continuing to cover your mouth and nose with a mask, washing your hands frequently, and staying at least 6 feet away from others .

 

What to expect from your booster

 

Know if you are eligible. To qualify for the booster dose, you must have received your last priming dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least 3 months ago or your last priming dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least 4 weeks ago. You must be at least 12 years old to receive a booster vaccination.

 

Bring proof of vaccination with you to your visit. One of our employees will ask you for your vaccination record. After you have checked in, your booster appointment follows the same steps as your primary vaccination appointments.

 

There may be minor side effects. As with the second dose, side effects are a sign that your immune system is increasing its response to the virus. They usually go away within a day or two.

Reschedule the appointment if you are not feeling well

 

Monitor how you are feeling before the day of your appointment. Please reschedule your appointment if you:

 

  • feel sick on the day of your vaccination.

  • Have COVID-19 or have been in contact with COVID-19 patients and are in quarantine.

 

Possible side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine:

Mild side effects from vaccines are common. It's a sign that your immune system is stepping up its response to the virus. We will monitor you for 15-30 minutes after your first and second doses, but it is important that you continue to watch for side effects after you exit.

 

You can experience:

fatigue

Mild limb or joint pain

chills

A slight fever

a headache

nausea

Mild muscle pain, redness or swelling in the arm where the vaccine was given

Swollen lymph nodes

 

Side effects seem to be more frequent after the second dose of the vaccine, but they usually go away within a day or two. Drinking plenty of water, getting a good night's sleep, and eating a balanced meal before your appointment can help reduce potential side effects.

 

Call us or make an appointment if you experience side effects. We also recommend taking paracetamol or ibuprofen. If your symptoms become severe, go to the emergency room or call 116117.
