Dear colleagues, dear international students,
After the decision of the Ministries of the Interior and for Science and Arts to open vaccination to all employees of State Institutions and to advance this group into priority category 3 (independent of age), there is new information available with respect to application and general procedures.
- The originally intended way to vaccinate all employees Institute/University wise had to be cancelled this week.
- All employees of State Institutions can use 2 procedures to get vaccinated as of this week:
- Individual registration at a vaccination center or at the respective family doctor. Documents required are the „Hessenticket“ (public transportation ticket for State employees) and an identity card. Employees with residence outside the State of Hesse may require an additional confirmation document by the University which could be picked up at the Human Resource Department.
- Registration at one of the planned vaccination centers for State employees, which are predicted to start vaccination sometime after the 25th of May. For Geisenheim employees, this center will probably be located in Wiesbaden. However, since these centers have not started operating yet it is difficult to predict when vaccinations could be expected to commence.
Vaccination for students will only start after all restrictions to categories have been lifted.
Hang in there and stay healthy!
Hans R. Schultz
