COVID-19 Vaccination Registration / Appointment Booking
Registration and appointment booking for a vaccination appointment can now be done via the registration portal of the Canton of Zurich. This is found on the Health Directorate website here.
If you do not have internet access, you can also register or make an appointment by telephone via the vaccination hotline: 0848 33 66 11.
To make an appointment, you will need the six-digit code you receive during registration.
As soon as appointments can be given again, the Health Directorate will provide a registration option on its website
Unfortunately, due to delivery delays and a limited amount of vaccine, it is not possible to make an vaccination appointment at this time. As soon as appointments can be given again, the Health Directorate will provide a registration option on its website, through which those willing to be vaccinated can both sign-up and pre-register for a vaccination appointment in accordance with the vaccination strategy. The Health Directorate will release more information in due time and asks for your continued patience.
We recommend that you regularly consult the Health Directorate website.
Corona Center: All vaccination appointments are fully booked
The number of people wanting to be vaccinated immediately exceeds the very limited number of vaccine doses currently available. As a result, all of the available appointments at the EBPI for the month of January have been filled. As more vaccine becomes available, these additional doses will be allocated via physicians to high-risk patients.
For individuals 75 years of age and older, the Health Directorate will implement a new registration option before the end of January whereby those seeking a vaccine can pre-register for a vaccination appointment with us. Those that do will then be contacted and invited for the next available appointment, pending vaccine availability.
The COVID-19 vaccination campaign will last several months and vaccination opportunities in the Canton of Zurich will be continually expanded. Everyone who wants a vaccination will be able to be vaccinated.
More information can be found on the Health Directorate website.
Anmeldung zur COVID-19-Impfung ab sofort möglich
Ab Montag, 4. Januar 2021, können sich Personen ab 75 Jahren und Hochrisikopatienten am von der Gesundheitsdirektion beauftragten Impf¬zentrum am Institut für Epidemiologie, Biostatistik und Prävention (EBPI) der Universität Zürich impfen lassen.

Reference Vaccination Center for the Canton of Zurich
The University of Zurich Travel Clinic is the COVID-19 reference vaccination center for the Canton of Zurich. Vaccinations will start on January 4, 2021.
Due to a limited number of vaccine doses, only high risk individuals who live in the canton of Zurich will initially be vaccinated. Those who are 75 years old and above, or those with certain pre-existing conditions will be able to register for a vaccination appointment. Further information on the registration process will be available before the end of the year.
Rapid Antigen Tests
We now offer Rapid Antigen Tests in our testcenter. As with the PCR test, this requires a nasopharyngeal swab. The results are available within 30 minutes-2 hours.
The Rapid Antigen Test is suitable for persons who have Coronavirus symptoms which started less than 4 days ago. Risk groups and healthcare workers with patient contact are excluded.
A physician will check during your visit whether a rapid antigen test is suitable for you.
Antibody tests: study in progress
We are conducting a study on antibody tests to detect previous infection with Sars-CoV-2. Registrations for this study are not possible. Subjects will be selected representatively and personally invited by the study management.
Therefore, we cannot fulfill requests from individuals for antibody testing. We would like to point out that the antibody tests currently available do not provide any information about a possible immunity of individuals. On the population level, however, statements about infections are possible.
