Did Switzerland just order a stop to all COVID-19 vaccinations?!
Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!
Claim : Switzerland Stops All COVID-19 Vaccinations!
People are sharing an article by Report24, as evidence that Switzerland has stopped all COVID-19 vaccinations:
@USMortality : Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn, doctors can only administer the controversial vaccines in individual cases under certain conditions – but then bear the risk of liability for vaccination damage.
Robert W Malone, MD : “News from the Front Lines Switzerland bans the COVID vaccines, Spike protein kills brain cells, AAPS updates, Twitter at war with Sbstck.”
Robert W Malone, MD : This is big news! “Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn””
PeterSweden : BOMBSHELL NEWS🚨🚨🚨
Switzerland is STOPPING the covid shots except under special circumstances.
And doctors will now be held LIABLE for injuries from giving it to patients.
Here is a machine translated excerpt from the really long German article, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!
BREAKING: Switzerland withdraws all Covid vaccination recommendations
Switzerland stops the Covid vaccinations: All vaccination recommendations have been withdrawn, doctors can only administer the controversial vaccines in individual cases under certain conditions – but then bear the risk of liability for vaccination damage. When will countries like Germany and Austria follow this example?

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:
The COVID-19 vaccination can be given from 6 months after the last COVID-19 vaccination or from 6 months after a known coronavirus infection. Other vaccinations with inactivated vaccines can also be administered before, at the same time as or after a COVID-19 vaccination.
We advise you to get vaccinated with a bivalent (i.e. variant-adapted) mRNA vaccine or with the protein-based Novavax vaccine. Which vaccine(s) you have previously received is of no importance here. Monovalent mRNA vaccines continue to provide good protection against severe COVID-19 with possible hospitalisation.
Please note: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have a severely weakened immune system, you should get yourself vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine.
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.
The federal government can only pay compensation for vaccination damages for vaccinations recommended or ordered by the authorities. However, the federal government will only pay compensation for damages that are not otherwise covered (subsidiary liability).
In other words, a person suffering damages is only entitled to compensation if the damage has not already been covered, for example, by the vaccine manufacturer (product liability), the person administering the vaccination (medical liability) or by social or private insurance.
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):
Monovalent for 12 years and above : 5-year authorisation since 27 March 2023
Monovalent 5 to 11 years : 5-year authorisation since 27 March 2023
Bivalent for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 10 October 2022
Monovalent for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 12 January 2021
Monovalent for 12 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 9 August 2021
Monovalent booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 26 October 2021
Monovalent for 6-11 years : Temporary authorisation since 13 May 2022
First bivalent vaccine : Temporary authorisation since 29 August 2022
Second bivalent vaccine : Unlimited authorisation since 8 March 2023
Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine
Vaccine for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 22 March 2021
Booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 27 December 2021
Nuvaxovid COVID-19 Vaccine
Vaccine for 18 years and above : Temporary authorisation since 12 April 2022
Vaccine for 12-18 years and booster dose : Temporary authorisation since 2 September 2022

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.
The liability of the doctor in a private practice or in a private hospital is assessed according to the Swiss Code of Obligations, in particular according to the regulations of the contract law (comparable requirements apply in a public hospital, but the liability is based on the cantonal state liability law).
The same rules regarding patient information apply to the Covid-19 vaccination as to all other vaccinations. Only if the duty of care has been violated and the other liability requirements are met (namely in the contractual relationship: breach of contract, adequate causal connection, fault and in the case of state liability: unlawfulness and adequate causal connection) can the vaccination center or the person vaccinating be held liable.
Ultimately, the cantonal authorities and courts have to decide whether and to what extent there could be a breach of the duty of care that could give rise to liability.
