At the moment, there seems to be almost no other topic than the coronavirus pandemic.
As head of the pediatric emergency department of the Charité, I co-wrote and continuously developed the guidelines for the management of SARS-CoV-2 in children, was a member of the pandemic team and treated many children with a coroanvirus infection myself – including those with COVID-19 and post-COVID symptoms such as PIMS / MIS-C.
Therefore, I am happy to advise you according to the latest recommendations: in case your child had contact to someone with a positive test result, typical symptoms or a proven SARS-CoV-2-infection and also in case your child develops symptoms after an infection.
Of course, we offer all standard tests in our practice (rapid antigen test, PCR and, if required, SARS-CoV-2 antibodies) and have also started offering vaccinations with BioNTech/Pfizer’s Comirnaty® vaccine in April. Currently, we are still vaccinating priority groups 1-3 and await the STIKO’s opinion regarding the vaccination of children under 16 years. To be added to our waiting list, please e-mail us and keep our phone lines free for medical emergencies.

Our hygiene concept is to admit you to the examination room through a separate entrance, thus avoiding unnecessary contacts in the practice.
The safety of our patients and their care-givers is our top priority.
