Getting vaccinated against COVID-19

1. Overview

The SARS-CoV-2 virus continues to circulate and the vaccine continues to protect against severe forms of COVID-19, especially for vulnerable persons. In Geneva, the vaccination system remains operational for all persons who wish to be vaccinated. 

Vaccination continues to give access to the COVID-19 certificate, which may be necessary to travel abroad to some countries.
