The RKI states the following about vaccination with vaccines not licensed in the EU (as of 24 September 2021):

  1. Persons who have already been vaccinated abroad with COVID-19 vaccines that are not licensed in the EU, require a vaccination according to current legal situation and taking into account the age-appropriate vaccination recommendations, a new vaccination series in order to obtain the status of vaccinated persons in the EU. For this classification, individuals (currently) need a full series of vaccinations with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). A current list of EU-approved COVID-19 vaccines as well as information on the required number of vaccine doses can be found on the PEI website.
  2. The vaccination series should be started at a minimum interval of ≥28 days. In such cases, the persons to be vaccinated should be informed that increased local and systemic reactions may occur. The vaccinating physicians are asked to actively observe the occurrence of increased vaccination reactions and, if necessary, to report them to thePaul-Ehrlich-Institute  report them.

The vaccination date on 17 November is part of the "Campus Impfen" campaign, with which the state and the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians of Thuringia (KVT) support the return to classroom teaching in the winter semester 2021/22. The offer is particularly aimed at first-year students and international students. However, it can generally be used by all students and staff members of the university who are interested in vaccination.

"We strongly recommend that all students and staff members make use of the vaccination offers to protect themselves and others and thus make a semester in attendance as well as a largely normal campus life possible," says TU Ilmenau President Prof. Kai-Uwe Sattler.
