Truth : Switzerland Did Not Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS by anti-vaccination activists, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Swiss COVID-19 Recommendations Are Available In 4 Languages
First, let me point out that the latest COVID-19 vaccination recommendations by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH / BAG) are available in both English and German, as well as French and Italian.
So there is no reason to rely on the German article posted by Report24, because you can directly read what the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health actually said.
Fact #2 : Switzerland Does Not Recommend Vaccination For Spring + Summer 2023
In its latest COVID-19 vaccination recommendations, the FOPH does not recommend COVID-19 vaccination for spring / summer 2023, because:
- nearly everyone (98%) in Switzerland has protection against COVID-19 from vaccination and/or having contracted and recovered from COVID-19,
- the virus is likely to circulate less in spring / summer 2023, and
- the current virus variants cause rather mild illness
However, that recommendation may change if “a wave of infection were to emerge in spring / summer 2023“.
In addition, it has not made any recommendation for autumn 2023, because that depends on the situation later in the year – whether there is a new variant or wave of infection.
It makes sense for Switzerland to stop recommending COVID-19 vaccination. After all, it had already achieved herd immunity with 98% of its population already protected through a combination of vaccination and prior infections.

Fact #3 : Switzerland Did Not Stop All COVID-19 Vaccinations
While Switzerland no longer recommends COVID-19 vaccination for the next six months, it did not actually order a stop to all COVID-19 vaccinations.
In fact, the FOPH pointed out that “vaccination may be wise in individual cases, as it improves protection against developing severe COVID-19 for several months” and that the advice “applies regardless of the number of vaccinations” already received.
The FOPH also maintained its advice on vaccination timing and vaccine type to be used:
Fact #4 : Not Recommended Vaccination At Own Cost + Own Risk
Because the FOPH no longer recommends COVID-19 vaccinations for spring / summer 2023, people who want to get vaccinated without a recommendation (for travel purposes, for example) will have to pay for the vaccine that was previously provided for free.
In addition, the COVID-19 vaccination will be given without subsidiary liability protection by the federal government.
Fact #5 : Recommended Vaccination Remains Free + Protected
However, if a doctor recommends that you receive the COVID-19 vaccine because you are considered “high risk”, it will be provided free of charge, and covered by compulsory health insurance.
In addition, such recommended COVID-19 vaccination will continue to be covered by subsidiary liability protection by the federal government.
Fact #6 : COVID-19 Vaccination Is Not Off-Label Use
The new changes in COVID-19 vaccine recommendation does not mean that COVID-19 vaccinations are now “off-label”, because they don’t change the authorisation of those recommended / approved vaccines:
Here are the latest approved COVID-19 vaccines in Switzerland (as of 9 April 2023):

Fact #7 : There Is No Change In Doctor Liability
The new changes in COVID-19 vaccine recommendation do not mean that doctors “have to be liable for the vaccination“.
Based on the FOPH document (PDF download) on COVID-19 vaccination strategy (November 29, 2022), the doctor’s liability in vaccinating people against COVID-19 is no different from any other medical procedure or vaccination.
