Immunization against HPV is now both recommended and reimbursed within the base medical insurance. The epidemiological data and the behavior of adolescents indicate that HPV immunization should be completed by the 15th birthday, catch-up being transiently recommended until the 20th birthday. The immunization against chickenpox of healthy children < 11 years remains non recommended, 2 vaccine doses being however recommended for high-risks children and adults. Hepatitis A vaccination is finally also reimbursed for high-risk patients - except for travelers. Finally, the WHO certified www.infovac.ch website now displays in French and German all information related to vaccine-preventable diseases and immunizations recommended in Switzerland, for both the professionals and the public. A source of information to be recommended without hesitation!
