Trainers, trainers, and holiday carers in child and youth work should check on site whether they can receive a vaccination offer
Anyone who works in “institutions and services of child and youth welfare” receives a vaccination offer nationwide in accordance with priority group 3 (Section 4 of the Vaccination Ordinance). This includes, for example, employees of youth centers and sports boarding schools. Holiday supervisors, trainers and trainers in the child and youth work of the clubs and associations should check on site whether they, as those involved in youth association work, can now receive a vaccination offer.
People who work in the context of youth work in accordance with Section 11 of Book VIII of the Social Code (Child and Youth Welfare Act) are covered by Section 4 (1) No. 8 of the Federal Corona Vaccination Ordinance (priority group 3: Child and youth welfare institutions).
Some state governments enable registration options for corona vaccination for priority group 3 (Section 4 Corona vaccination ordinance).
Since some state governments have now activated the registration option for corona vaccination for priority group 3 (§ 4 Corona vaccination ordinance) or will do so in the next few days, full-time and voluntary trainers are trainers with direct contact with children and to recommend young people and youth leaders to find out about current regulations in their own federal state. It may be possible to book a vaccination appointment. As a rule, a corresponding certificate from the provider / association (so-called employer certificate) must be submitted. There are some patterns for this in the federal states.
As an auxiliary criterion, the requirement to present an extended certificate of good conduct within the framework of the activity in the sports club can be used. People who are active in youth work in a sports club and who regularly have to present an extended certificate of good conduct as part of this activity (cf. § 72a SGB VIII) always belong to priority group 3.
However, the exact procedure for vaccinations is always a matter of interpretation by the federal states, which is why there can be considerable differences.
