Currently, there are several options for students to receive a Covid-19 vaccination, regardless of where they are registered. But as a foreign student, a vaccination in Germany is only possible with a German health insurance.

Notice

On Wednesday, 27 October 2021, students and employees of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena will have the opportunity to be vaccinated on campus by a mobile vaccination team from the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Thüringen (KVT).

When: Wednesday, 27 October 2021, 9 am to 3 pm
Where: University of Jena, Foyer Carl-Zeiß-Straße
Vaccine: BioNTech or Johnson&Johnson

People who received their first dose of BioNTech at the first campus vaccination on 28 September will receive their second vaccination on that day. However, first-time vaccinations will also be given.

No registration is necessary. If available, please bring your insurance card, your vaccination certificate and your matriculation certificate or thoska.

People who are still unsure whether they should be vaccinated against COVID-19 are welcome to seek advice from the medical staff on site. This applies in particular to students who have been vaccinated abroad with a vaccine that has not yet been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). There will also be contact persons present who speak English.

Please note: the vaccination offer does not imply any entitlement to vaccination. The final decision - as always - is made by the doctor after the educational interview.

Vaccination options:

Vaccines

Which vaccine you get usually depends on where you get vaccinated and which vaccine is available there.

For a vaccination with the mRNA vaccines from BioNTech and Moderna, two vaccinations are required for full vaccination protection. It is important that you attend the second appointment.

With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, only one vaccination is necessary to obtain full protection.

Further information on the vaccines can be obtained from the Paul Ehrlich Institute.

I got vaccinated because...

I got vaccinated because I want to contribute to the containment of the pandemic. This way, I can finally meet up with friends again without any worries, and pursue all my hobbies. I also hope to be able to travel without restrictions again soon.

It is reassuring to know that by vaccinating, I am not only protecting myself, but also others, especially my family and those closest to me. Protect yourself and everyone you care about!

I would be really happy if we could all meet again next semester, because I miss the warmth of the people. For that, we all need to get vaccinated to protect our own and each other's health. The vaccinations are finally here - now it's our turn!

Getting vaccinated protects my family, friends and acquaintances. It is an act of solidarity with those who cannot be vaccinated or for whom no vaccine is available. With vaccination, we can return to a life that is not completely dominated by Corona. That is why I am happy if as many people as possible get vaccinated.

When I started my studies, I was so looking forward to this student life that everyone talks about: Meeting new people and trying new things every day, sleeping little, partying a lot. But this can only be done together if we are all vaccinated and thus protect each other.

I got vaccinated because it shows solidarity and is therefore humane. And, because it's just cool.

You are not in Jena?

Then it's best to find out about your vaccination options locally. Every federal state in Germany now offers flexible vaccination appointments in vaccination centres or GP practices.
