New counters for Covid Certificates in the vaccination centre

People who have been fully vaccinated since 21 June 2021 are by now supposed to have received an SMS or a letter to enable them to download their Covid Certificate. People who have not been able to do this can report to one of the new counters in the vaccination centre from 1 July 2021 and apply for a certificate by presenting their identity card and the appropriate documents (e.g. vaccination card, vaccination record).

Please note:

The rhythm of delivery of data about hospitalisations in connection with Covid-19 is being adjusted and data will only be delivered from Monday to Friday in future. This adjustment is due to the current Covid-19 situation and the falling number of Covid-19 patients requiring hospitalisation. Hospitalisation figures that were recorded on Saturday and Sunday will now be recorded in the system on Mondays and then published.

All other figures will continue to be updated every day on the website www.coronavirus.bs.ch. The latest vaccination figures can be found on the Basel-Stadt data portal.

New statistics about mass testing in establishments and schools are also available on the Basel-Stadt data portal.
