The COVID-19 Vaccine

at the Reference Vaccination Center

We offer first, second and booster COVID-19 vaccinations for adults and adolescents (12 years and older) and first and second Covid vaccinations for children (5-11 years). Since the 10.10.2022 we are also offering the new bivalent booster from both Pfizer and Moderna.

You can either make an appointment directly through this link or by calling the COVID-19 vaccination hotline (0848 33 66 11).


Please note our new opening hours:

  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 08:30 - 17:00


As of 18.01.23, it will again be possible to drop in spontaneously for a vaccination without an appointment.


On days when the vaccination center is closed, we ask you to contact a vaccination pharmacy or your family doctor's office.


Who can be vaccinated?

The vaccine is approved for those 5 years of age or older. The current vaccination recommendations (last update on 29.11.2022) include one booster vaccination for the period fall/winter 2022/23. Persons who have already received a booster vaccination ("booster") since 10.10.2022 are not recommended another booster vaccination after 4 months. It does not matter how many booster vaccinations it is. 


Coverage of costs

The first two vaccinations (basic immunization) are free of charge. Starting on Monday, the 10th of October, 2022, the cost of the booster vaccination will again be covered for all recommended vaccination groups (> 16 years of age). Those who wish to receive another booster vaccination after 10/02/2023 may receive it as a self-pay patient. For persons over 16 years of age who have not yet received a booster vaccination since 10/10/2022, this will continue to be free of charge within the framework of the current EKIF vaccination recommendations in the fall/winter of 2022/23.

COVID Certificate

Please consult the Health Directorate website for the latest information regarding the COVID Certificate.

For people who consented to their vaccination data being passed on for the creation of the vaccination certificate when registering in the cantonal vaccination tool (VacMe), the COVID certificate is automatically generated after your second vaccination dose. Once your certificate has been generated, you will be notified by SMS and the certificate will be available for download on your personal VacMe profile.

Change Request for the COVID Certificate

If you need to make an administrative change to your COVID Certificate, for example if you need to change the spelling of your first name, this change can be requested at zh.ch/covid-certificate.
