Things to keep in mind ahead of your visit
The checklist below includes what you need to keep in mind when you come to be vaccinated.
- You can only make an appointment for yourself.
- You must bring a valid identification document.
- Do not come to the clinic unless you are free of cold symptoms. Otherwise change your appointment.
- When you are being vaccinated, you must hand in a completed health declaration. Print it out even today, fill it in and bring it with you to your appointment. If you are unable to print the health declaration yourself, we will give you a copy to fill in at the clinic. Please bring your own pen if you can.
- Wear easily removable clothes on your upper body so that you can easily have the injection made in your upper arm.
