Corona

Due to the current situation, we will put together some important information and links on this page.

We are preparing for the possible COVID-19 vaccinations soon and will announce here when we will be allowed to vaccinate you in our practice. The following is some information on your preparation.

A distinction is made between mRNA and vector vaccines with different modes of action (but similar immune response), different vaccination intervals and a similar side effect and vaccine response profile. Facts, information and the medical and consent form for the respective vaccination published by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) can be found here

From now on, Corona quick tests can be performed once a week for our patients after appointments. A negative test result indicates for the coming hours that there is probably no increased virus load. If you show typical symptoms of a covid infection (fever, sore throat, cough, loss of taste or smell) please isolate and get tested again – then with a PCR Test.

Read the instructions for use for the quick tests which you can purchase yourself and perform at home.For the spittests at home, it should also be noted that 30 minutes, or better one hour, before carrying out the test nothing should be eaten, drunk, not grateed or teeth brushed to avoid reducing the detectable amount of virus and thus increase test safety. The best time for the spitting tests is therefore immediately after getting up.

If the quick test is positive at home, isolate yourself immedeately. Please contact us, or please contact 116117 outside of practice hours. Then a PCR smear test will be carried out, which is sent to the laboratory to validate the quick test result. The same happens, if the rapid test carried out in practice is positive. If the PCR is positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it is currently automatically examined by the laboratory for the presence of the known circulating virus variants.

Our entrance door is still closed to reduce contacts. We ask you to ring once briefly at the bottom right of the gate and wait there. Please maintain the distance of at least 1.5 meters from others and enter the stairway only individually. In order to prepare the daily routines, we are by telephone reachable from approx. 9:00 a.m. In order to reduce possible contacts, accompanying persons can only be admitted into practice after consultation. Thank you for your understanding!

For infection protection, a medical mouth-nose cover was ordered. Therefore, please wear them before entering the practice.

We wish all patients health!
