Swissmedic gives the green light: Now comes the booster vaccination

Finally! The drug authority Swissmedic gives its go for the booster vaccination from Moderna and Biontech / Pfizer. The refresher pik is permitted for particularly vulnerable people – in particular for senior citizens. “People at particular risk can therefore receive a booster vaccination in order to continue to be adequately protected against severe courses of the Covid-19 disease,” writes Swissmedic in a press release.

Now the booster vaccinations can be used more widely. Swissmedic is now approving the third vaccination “for certain population groups”, specifically “for people who are particularly at risk” and “for people with a weakened immune system”, as the message states.
