Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe welcomes vaccination summit on May 27th - vaccination strategy for students Fotografie;Prostock-studio Fotografie;Prostock-studio
Finally, face-to-face events and a "normal" studying in the winter semester? To make this possible, students must receive a vaccination offer early enough. On May 20th, the immensely important “vaccination slots for students” in the vaccination centers were discussed at the virtual meeting #studigipfel ( ). This should also be the subject of today's vaccination summit with Chancellor Merkel.
In order to create the prerequisites for a"normal" face-to-face studying for the winter semester, we must now vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate the students!!! The Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe has the necessary infrastructure directly on the campus in the Studentenhaus to be able to contribute to the vaccination strategy for students. To this end, we have created the opportunity to have a vaccination by company doctors for our students on campus - in the heart of the center of their lives. Only the vaccine is still missing! This is what the Studierendenwerk Karlsruhe is committed to - we do not give up hope of “a normal student life” and want to give life to this hope!
