You can get vaccinated at the Checkpoint. We recommend vaccination against hepatitis A, hepatitis B and HPV. In certain cases, the costs are covered by the health insurance (basic insurance). Make an appointment for vaccinations and clarify the possible costs for you.
I don’t know if I’ve been vaccinated….
If you have not been vaccinated or do not know your vaccination status, we can carry out a blood test to check immunity. The laboratory analysis provides clarity. Gaps in vaccination can be closed with a booster.
Vaccination against the hepatitis A virus (HAV) is especially recommended for men who have sex with men. The costs of the vaccination are covered by the basic health insurance. A combined vaccination against hepatitis A and B is also available.
Vaccination against the hepatitis B virus (HBV) is recommended for everyone. As a rule, three injections are necessary, administered within half a year, to be protected against it for a lifetime. Since 1997, hepatitis B vaccination has been one of the vaccinations given in schools (secondary or vocational) (11-15 years). The cost of the vaccination is covered by the basic health insurance. A combined vaccination against hepatitis A and B is also available. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
HPV vaccination is recommended for all persons before their first sexual contact. According to the cantonal vaccination programme, the costs are covered if you are not yet 27 years old. HPV can provoke genital warts and/or certain cancers. They are transmitted through skin-to-skin contact.
