- At this point in the pandemic, nearly everyone in Switzerland has either been vaccinated and/or had and recovered from COVID-19. Their immune systems have therefore been exposed to the coronavirus. The virus variants currently in circulation also cause milder disease than earlier variants. This is why the situation has been revised for autumn 2022 and the vaccine recommendations have been adapted accordingly. - People at especially high risk of severe COVID-19 illness can strengthen their protection against severe disease at least temporarily by getting a booster. The booster vaccination is therefore strongly recommended for everyone who is at especially high risk. [→ Factsheet for people at especially high risk](https://bag-coronavirus.ch/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/20220930_Merkblatt_ImpfungHerbst22_BGP_en.pdf "Englisch") - For all other people aged 16 or over, the autumn booster offers minimal and short-term protection against infections with mild illness. Thanks to existing protection, the risk of severe illness for vaccinated people in this group is very low.
