With the beginning of January 2021 the Canton of Bern successfully started its Covid-19 Vaccine Campaign with an official link to register for vaccination. Upon completion of this registration a corresponding code is issued together with a letter that prioritizes your right to vaccination and allocates your vaccine dose. In case of no-shows, the cantonal vaccination system automatically determines the next-prioritized person and informs accordingly. As the present vaccination doses available throughout Switzerland can not cover the entire demand at the moment, longer waiting periods must be taken into account.
The University Clinic for Visceral Surgery and Medicine recommends all its patients to register for the Corona vaccination. With immediate effect the UVCM physician team also will inform their patients accordingly during consultation hours. As of the individual registration details, e.g. the registration confirmation is sent by e-mail and codes as well as prioritization letters are transmitted via mobile phone, we recommend that our patients register themselves personally rather than by our clinic as this might generate some chaos when dealing with the expected huge amount of personal registration data.
Patients with certain pre-existing conditions making vaccination urgent can address to their family doctors and/or to our clinic for a prescription of a so-called “prioritized vaccination recommendation”. If you belong to a high-risk group, don not hesitate to ask us for this prescription during consultation hours or to send us your enquiry directly to Hepatologie Insel.
