Employee Vaccination

against COVID-19

Munich Re offers its employees and their household members voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations, provided that vaccines are available. It is our stated goal to vaccinate as many people as possible, and thus support the German vaccination strategy in the best way possible.

What needs to be observed?

  • If you have already received a first vaccination or already have an appointment for a first vaccination at another vaccination centre or with your general practitioner, be sure to keep it and do not register at Munich Re's vaccination centre! We only carry out second vaccinations with colleagues who have also received the first vaccination with us!
  • We offer a second vaccination with Comirnaty from Biontech/Pfizer to employees and their household members who have received a primary vaccination with the vector-based vaccine from Astra Zeneca, provided that the primary vaccination took place 9-12 weeks ago. Please be sure to observe the requirements for this described under "Which vaccine is used?
  • If you have been sick with COVID 19 within the last 6 months, please do not register at the vaccination centre. 
  • Please note that this is a voluntary arrangement, and Munich Re will not treat non-vaccinated employees disadvantaged at any time – for example when offices are reopened more widely.
  • Depending on the circumstances, Munich Re cannot guarantee that you will be vaccinated more quickly via this offer than via the regular procedure, which is why we strongly advise you to nevertheless register for the state vaccination programmes.
  • If you would like to clarify whether vaccination is possible in the case of certain medical conditions, please be sure to contact your general practitioner or a company doctor in advance. If you have allergies, please refer to the information flyer "Allergies and COVID-19 vaccination", which you can download at the end of the page.

Which vaccine is used?

Comirnaty (Biontech/Pfizer)

We currently offer the vaccine COMIRNATY from Biontech/Pfizer. Detailed information is available at: https://biontech.de/de/covid-19)

Please note that a second shot is mandatory 6 weeks after the first vaccination with COMIRNATY. Therefore, please only register for the first vaccination if you can definitely keep the appointment for the second one!  

 

Second vaccination with Comirnaty after first vaccination with Vaxzevria

For employees and their household members who have already received a first vaccination with the vector-based vaccine from Astra Zeneca, we offer a second vaccination with Comirnaty from Biontech/Pfizer. The STIKO recommends a heterologous vaccination scheme in which vaccines of different technologies (vector and mRNA vaccine) are used within one vaccination series. This means that persons <60 years of age who have already received a 1st dose of Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) should now be offered a vaccine dose of an mRNA vaccine instead of the 2nd vaccine dose of Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) 9-12 weeks after the initial vaccination.

The 2nd vaccine dose completes the vaccination series. From the registration studies of the vaccine Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) it is known that the efficacy of the vaccine increases with the interval to the 1st vaccine dose and that the best efficacy is reached after 12 weeks. After this time, the vaccine protection decreases and a completion of the vaccination schedule with a second vaccine dose should take place. It is not yet clear whether this also applies to the heterologous vaccination schedule.

Please note that we strictly adhere to the recommendation of the Stiko and do not perform a second vaccination if the interval to the first vaccination with Vaxzevria is less than 9 weeks! Therefore, please do not register if this applies to you. Otherwise, we will unfortunately have to turn you away at the vaccination centre.

 

It is possible that we will receive other vaccines approved by the EMA in the future. In this case, we would inform you in advance. At the time of activation of the vaccination dates, it is always clear which vaccine you will receive.

How does the vaccination appointment proceed at Munich Re?

Before coming to the vaccination centre, please perform an antigen self-test for SARS-CoV-2 both two days before and on the day of your vaccination; make sure that you have all the necessary documents.  If you have any COVID-19 symptoms (regardless of severity!), please be examined by your physician; do not come to the vaccination centre.
When you enter the waiting area, your appointment booking will be checked. Therefore, please have the appointment confirmation ready as a printout or on your smartphone. 
At the registration desk, the required documents will be checked for completeness and you will be registered as present at the vaccination centre. You will then be directed to an intermediate waiting area and from there on to vaccination.

The doctor will determine whether the vaccination can be carried out on the basis of your medical history form and a personal interview; the doctor can clarify any uncertainties. Please decide prior to arriving at the centre if you want to be vaccinated. If you are unsure whether you can or want to be vaccinated, please clarify this in advance with your family doctor or the company doctors.

Vaccination can take place only if you give your written consent. Ideally, you should bring all the necessary documents with you, already signed. When choosing your clothing, please note that the injection will be administered in your upper arm.

After the vaccination, an entry will be made in your vaccination booklet; you will also receive an official vaccination certificate. If a follow-up appointment for a second dose is required, this will be arranged afterwards. We ask for your understanding that appointment requests cannot be considered, as the vaccination intervals are automatically predetermined by the type of vaccine.

After vaccination, you will be directed to the monitoring area. Before entering, please hand in the signed documents and the vaccination certificate (you will receive these in duplicate), where they will be scanned and afterwards filed. 

We recommend that you remain in the monitoring area for 20 minutes. In case of any medical problems, initial care will be provided by the in-house emergency doctor and medical staff. If you leave the monitoring area earlier, you do so at your own risk.

Please note that the monitoring zone must remain quiet at all times. Please refrain from conversations and telephone calls during your stay.

Please calculate a total of 30 to 40 minutes for the entire procedure at the Munich Re vaccination centre.
