By getting vaccinated, we can ready our immune system for the coronavirus so that we will ideally not get infected with the COVID-19 disease or that it will occur in a milder form. Learn more about the importance of vaccination and read answers to frequently asked questions on this topic on the Robert Koch Institute website (content only available in German).
Vaccines are being researched and developed worldwide for the prevention of COVID-19. The Biontech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines have been approved for use in the European Union. Other projects are currently at an advanced stage. This means that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has received study data from manufacturers and is evaluating this data. The EMA is responsible for the approval process.

Some of the vaccines have different ways of working and people therefore need to be vaccinated at different intervals with different vaccines. What they all have in common is that they all offer effective protection against infection with Covid-19. Vaccination is currently carried out by appointment in the vaccination centres as well as by certain doctors in Bremen and Bremerhaven.
