Corona vaccination: Validity of the vaccination

The following regulations currently apply to people who have been vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the EMA:

  • The second vaccination is valid for a maximum of 270 days from the time of the second vaccination.

  • Vaccines that only require one vaccination (e.g. from Johnson & Johnson) are valid from the 22nd day after vaccination for a total of 270 days from the day of vaccination.

  • For people who have already recovered and have been vaccinated once, the vaccination is valid for 270 days from the time of vaccination.

From August 15th, a vaccination will only be considered proof of a low epidemiological risk if the person is fully immunised. The proof will be issued from the day of the 2nd vaccination. The regulations for people working with Johnson & Johnson and those who have recovered and been tested remain unchanged.

The following still applies to people who have recovered:

These are exempt from the test requirement for 180 days after the infection has expired. Evidence includes a isolation notice or a medical confirmation of an infection confirmed by molecular biology. Evidence of neutralizing antibodies counts for 90 days from the time of the test.

A comprehensive range of test options creates numerous low-threshold options for test evidence.

Different validity periods are set for the tests depending on their reliability:

  • PCR tests are valid for 72 hours from sample collection.

  • Antigen tests from an authorized body are valid 48 hours from the time the sample was taken.

  • Self-tests that are recorded in an official data processing system of the federal states are valid for 24 hours.
