Certification of recognized vaccines from third countries

The University Medical Center is expanding its Covid-19-related services beginning next week.

Persons who have received a vaccination in a third country outside the EU are often faced with the challenge of proving the equivalence of their vaccination protection according to the criteria of the European Union. Paul-Ehrlich-Institut provides relevant information regarding the equivalence of vaccines at https://www.pei.de/impfstoffe/covid-19.

The University Medical Center now offers to issue a corresponding certificate for vaccinations with an equivalent vaccine in order to support a smooth process during the 3G examination at RWTH. This certificate is recognized (exclusively) within the RWTH and by Studierendenwerk facility as a vaccination card. Currently, especially persons who have received vaccinations with the product Covishield are addressed here. If the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut recognizes further products, this list will be extended accordingly. For persons who have been vaccinated in third countries with one of the four products approved in the EU, a certificate is not required.

A certificate can be issued at the Vaccination Center of the University Hospital RWTH Aachen on the following dates:

  7 September, 9 to 11 a.m.                  
  8 September, 9 to 11 a.m.
  9 September, 9 to 11 a.m.
16 September, 9 to 11 a.m.
23 September, noon to 2 p.m.

After 23 September 2021, Vaccination Center hours will be from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursdays. Advance registration is not required.

The Vaccination Center is located in the University Hospital, conference room, floor E, corridor 03 by elevator B2.

For further inquiries, the University Medical Center team is available via sekretariat@hsa.rwth-aachen.de.
