Health check-up: When Which Examination?

The planner for health: So that you don’t miss any important examinations, you can recognize ailments in time and better counteract civilization diseases and signs of wear and tear.

Once a year
Vaccinations: Do you need a booster? Or are additional vaccinations (e.g. against influenza) advisable? It is best to have your vaccination record checked by your family doctor right at the beginning of the new year and to find out about any special days or weeks when vaccines are cheaper than usual at the pharmacy.

Blood test: From the age of 35 at the latest, a blood count should be taken once a year and a urine test carried out. Organic or cardiovascular diseases can be detected at an early stage and thus treated more easily.

Gynaecologist: As part of the routine examination, the breast is checked for lumps and the cervix is examined.
