Persons who have already been vaccinated abroad with COVID-19 vaccines not licensed in the EU require a new vaccination series (see RKI page 8) in order to obtain the status of vaccinated persons in the EU, in accordance with the current legal situation and taking into account the age-appropriate vaccination recommendations. In such cases, the persons to be vaccinated should be informed that increased local and systemic reactions may occur. Vaccinating physicians are asked to actively monitor for the occurrence of increased vaccine reactions and, if necessary, report them to the Paul Ehrlich Institute.
