Important information on Corona booster vaccination

January 10th, 2022 | by

The Standing Committee on Vaccination (STIKO) has updated its recommendations on COVID-19 vaccinations again.

The STIKO now recommends that everyone aged 18 and older receive a booster dose with an mRNA vaccine from 3 months after their last dose of the primary immunization. Persons who were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are advised to receive the booster dose as early as 4 weeks after primary immunization.

University Management, the Crisis Management Team, and the University Medical Center continue to strongly encourage all members of RWTH to get a booster vaccination at the recommended interval. Individuals who have not yet been vaccinated are urged to take up a vaccination offer as soon as possible!

Because the University Medical Center is mostly supplied with the mRNA vaccine Spikevax from the manufacturer Moderna, booster vaccinations are currently offered exclusively to all employees and students who are 30 or older.

Please use the booking portal, which you can find at, to reserve an appointment. Employees need their personnel number to book an appointment, while students need their student ID number. If you do not know it, you can find it in the RWTH Selfservice under RWTH Data.

Please contact

Please note the following important guidelines:

  • Make sure you bring the necessary documents for primary immunization with you to the arranged vaccination appointment. The University Medical Center can only give proper medical advice if such documents are at hand.
  • If you are unable to keep your appointment or have already made an appointment elsewhere, please send the University Medical Center an email at immediately. Please do not make multiple bookings under any circumstances.
  • The University Medical Center posts new appointment slots on a regular basis. If there are currently no appointments available to book, please keep checking back.

In addition to the vaccinations offered by the University Medical Center, I would like to draw your attention to the following information pages on vaccination services in the area:

In addition, please note that Städteregion Aachen continues to offer vaccinations to anyone aged 18 and older on Fridays from 12 to 7:30pm in Lecture Hall AS, Templergraben 64 (lower level). Here you can get vaccinated without prior appointment.
