Questions and answers about indication vaccinations

What are indicated vaccinations?

Indicated vaccinations are vaccinations that are recommended in certain situations (indication). Indication vaccinations can be divided into the following three groups:

  • Vaccinations for risk groups (indication vaccinations),
  • Vaccinations due to increased occupational risk (occupational vaccinations),
  • Vaccinations due to travel (travel vaccinations).

Which indicated vaccinations are there?

Indicated vaccinations include among others:

  • Cholera,
  • TBE,
  • Yellow fever,
  • Hepatitis A,
  • Japanese encephalitis,
  • Rabies,
  • Typhoid fever.

How is my vaccination status for indicated vaccinations determined?

Vacuna determines your vaccination status for your indicated vaccinations based on the vaccine manufacturer's technical information for all commonly used vaccines.

The vaccination status for indicated vaccinations depends on the vaccine. Different vaccines may therefore have different vaccination statuses. Therefore, for clarity, the most recently vaccinated vaccine is displayed in each case in the status details for indicated vaccinations.

The indications themselves, such as diseases, are not recorded as they are particularly sensitive health data. Since the vaccinations themselves are entered, the vaccination status is therefore a self-check. Vacuna cannot replace the diagnosis and the visit to the doctor.

Does Vacuna support vaccination recommendations for hematology and oncology patients?

Unfortunately, hematological and oncological vaccination recommendations are not supported yet. We are referring to the vaccination recommendations of the University Hospital Cologne (download PDF).
