Which vaccine is used on children?

The Nationale Impfgremium (NIG) recommends the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine for children 5 years and older. Children – like adults – are vaccinated in 2 steps. The second shot is administered 3 weeks after the first shot.

According to the recommendation, children between 5 and 11 years are vaccinated with one third of an adult’s dose.
