  1. I went to my child's doctor today to get some clarification about a date written in a vaccination pass. Underneath was also a year written but no notes. The last entry was 2016. We have been going to this office since 2013.    What is strange is that after it was cleared up what date was in the pass, as well as what the year meant (returning in five more years for a tetanus shot), I was asked to produce my sons health card because I had received an Impfberatung (Vaccine Consultation). I didn't have it with me, and was asked to return next week with it.    All of this exchange was under 30 seconds with a receptionist, not a doctor. I have never been asked this before in all the years we have been going there. The woman was really annoyed with me like I should know this. I asked her if this was something new, which left her green. I am wondering if this is a scam.    I called the insurance and they confirmed doctors can and should give a consultation with a vaccine appointment. But a question at a front desk about a date and future vaccine seems a strange thing to bill.    Has anyone encountered this before? 
  2. I got my first dose of Pfizer vaccine this morning at my Hausarzt praxis. I asked whether I can get it documented. What I got is a 1950-style yellow booklet, which was only filled with my name, no other id details, and on one of the pages one line in handwriting showing a date , a cross in column for COVID19  and signature of the doc with a "rubber stamp" ( of questionable visibility) and with a sticker that only has some text on it. I asked if they have something more "secure" perhaps electronic , the doctor just smiled and said that in terms of electronic certificate Germany is behind Romania (his words not mine)  My parentsgot vaccinated in Sweden last month, also with Pfizer, and I have seen the stickers they got: secured with hologram and 3D bar code. and they were able to scan the code to their electronic vaccination card called "mittvaccin" which was than verified electronically by the lab who gave them the stab So I wonder: will this yellow booklet I got, be recognized at all when traveling abroad? There is no id-details except the name, the vaccine is not identified by secure means plus there are probably other issues    
  3. Germany is going to take a loooong time to vaccinate its way through the age band population compared to UK.   Not only due to stock / supply / contract issues, but also simply by the fact that Germany has a much older population, and will be slowed down spending considerably more time on age bands 80+, 70+, 60+.   Some Germans in UK may choose to travel to Germany to secure a Pfizer vaccine, such is the mistrust over the Astra Zeneca one.   So... given both UK and EU nationals can carry on using their EHIC cards in eachothers' countries post-Brexit, should brits 40+ and 50+ (health impact is greater 40+, than for under 40s) in Germany travel to UK to get a vaccine earlier, while Germany spends most of this year on 80+, 70+, 60+?   Note: current travel restrictions in Germany and UK will probably relax by the summer.
