Why do I have to get vaccinated when recovered from Covid-19?

If you had Corona, your immune system has developed antibodies against the disease. However, these antibodies decrease over time and you may again contract Corona. With vaccination, the memory of your immune system will be boosted, so to speak, thus protecting you against a second infection.

For this reason, the Nationale Impfgremium (NIG) recommends a single dose of a Corona vaccine no earlier than 4 weeks after recovery. With this shot, you will get a vaccination certificate that considers you just as well protected as after 2 vaccinations without any previous Corona infection. Also from a medical point of view you are thus very well protected.
