Since the beginning of the vaccination campaign in winter 2020/2021, the primary goal of the STIKO's Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccination recommendations has been the prevention of severe outcomes (COVID-19-related hospitalizations and deaths) and long-term consequences of COVID-19, as well as the protection of medical and nursing staff against infections with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). With the shift from the pandemic to the endemic phase, the STIKO discussed the transition from the previous recommendations to a more permanent COVID-19 vaccination recommendation. The following updated recommendation has been integrated into the vaccination calendar of the general STIKO recommendations.
