You can get a PEP at the checkpoint during opening hours. If the checkpoint is closed, you should not wait but go to the nearest emergency PEP centre. HIV infection can be prevented in the first few hours by post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). The costs are covered by the compulsory basic health insurance.

If you have had a risky situation, don’t waste time. The sooner you start, the better the chance that PEP will prevent infection. After 48 hours, PEP is no longer effective.
