Berlin / Brussels - Whether cinema, restaurant or gym - without detection is currently running. Compass and Corona Warning have become permanent companions. But beware! Already in a few days - on 1 February 2022 - millions of corona vaccination certificates expire across Europe. Merkur.de explains who is impacted and what to consider.
Corona rules in Germany: Who is considered completely vaccinated?
In order to be able to participate in large parts of public life in Germany, one needs the so-called basic immunization. Classically, after two vaccinations with a vaccine approved in the EU, one gains this status - including Vaccine Johnson & Johnson.
However, the location of one of the two syringes can also take a surviving corona infection. When the status reaches legally, however, varies from case to case.
For example, in two vaccinations, the basic immunization is 14 days after the second PICK. Whoever becomes infected with Corona and then vaccinate, gets the status right on the day of the syringe. Anyone who captures Corona after the origin of Corona must wait 28 days after recovering.
Validity of the Corona vaccination certificate: These rules are currently valid in Germany - still!
In order to be able to visit Cinema, pub and Co. in Germany, you need a vaccination or genera detection - i.e. a digital vaccination certificate generated from the medical detection of vaccination and / or recovery. Also, the template of vaccination or attests is still accepted in many places.
Currently, the digital vaccination certificates in Germany are valid for people with basic immunization for twelve months. Without refreshing vaccination (booster) the status then fails.
Digital detection and validity: What changes on 1 February?
The European Union has decided a limitation of fundamimunization. The validity of the digital vaccination certificates is reduced from twelve to nine months. As of February 1, 2022, the regulation enters into force and also concerns all digital civil detections issued in Germany (all news about the service on Corona ).
The Federal Government has approved the European push. However, when the deadline reduction in Germany is to apply, is currently not officially confirmed. Just like an adaptation of the recent period, the 9-month rule could be finally decided on the next Corona Summit of Federation and Lander on 24 January.
Corona vaccination only 9 months ago: Who is affected?
There is currently: The new EU rule is in any case from 1 February for travel within the EU. It is still unclear whether the possibly expired status of the basic immunization is displayed in the Compass and Corona Warn app - and whether it is binding within Germany.
The new 9-month period is precisely a 270-day period. It means: On February 1, 2022 all people who retained before 7 May 2022 considered a basic immunized, their status. According to an evaluation of the Kassenärztliche federal association, from which Focus online quotes, around 8.8 million people in Germany are impacted by the deadline. From 2 February, new people will come daily.
Date, validity, expiration date: What applies to the booster vaccine?
In order for the almost 9 million those impacted on 1 February no evil surprise experience, they have to be booster. In particular, people from Berlin, Saxony and Thuringia should be careful, because in contrast to, for example, Bavaria is only 14 days after the refresh vaccination as boomed. So if you live in these federal states, before 7 May 2022 considered a basic immunized and has not received any refreshing, is already too late.
The constant vaccination commission recommends the refresh vaccine from the third month after the basic immunization. About how long the Booster Picks own legal validity, there is currently no decision.
However, the technical expiration date in the digital vaccination certificate suggests a 12-month validity. Corona and Merkur.de are part of the editorial network of IPS.media
