In the 14th update of the COVID-19 vaccination recommendation published in Epidemiological Bulletin 48/2021, the STIKO recommends the COVID-19 booster vaccination for all persons aged ≥ 18 years. The booster should be done with an mRNA vaccine. The use of Comirnaty is recommended for people <30 years of age and pregnant women from the 2nd trimester. In contrast, both currently available mRNA vaccines (Comirnaty and Spikevax) are equally suitable for people aged ≥ 30 years.
