Every vaccination counts – for this reason, RUB and the vaccination centre Bochum are extending their vaccination offer. From 26 July until 31 July 2021, vaccinations are possible in the University Forum, UFO for short, in the Unicenter Querenburg for everyone of 16 years of age or older. An appointment is not necessary. The centre is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. First and second doses can be administered. Questions can be directed to the team of the vaccination centre Bochum at +49 234 910 5555 or email@example.com.
For the vaccination, mainly the mRNA vaccine of Biontech/Pfizer will be used. However, the vaccines of Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca are also available on request. The personnel in the vaccination centre will give advice which vaccine is most appropriate for a given person. Communication is possible in German and English, usually also in Turkish and Arabian language.
The vaccination offer addresses all students from Bochum or who study at a university in Bochum. Employees and the local citizens are welcome as well.
Pregnant women can only be vaccinated if they have a medical certificate of a specialist. People who have recovered from Covid-19 can be vaccinated after four weeks, if they did not suffer any symptoms. In other cases, vaccination is only possible six to ten months after recovery. People under 16 years of age cannot be vaccinated in the UFO.
The UFO building is the former “Kirchenforum” (church centre) in the Unicenter Querenburg (address: Querenburger Höhe 294, 44801 Bochum). Since the beginning of May, a Corona test station is situated in that building, too. It is located close to the U35 train station “Ruhr-Universität Bochum”. You can find the UFO building at the top of the RUB map.
If you would prefer to make an appointment for your vaccination, you can do so at the vaccination centre Bochum (Impfzentrum Bochum). Appointments can be booked online at www.116117.de or via the website of the Westphalia-Lippe Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Westfalen-Lippe).
On the website of the vaccination centre Bochum, you will find further vaccination offers without appointment on additional dates and in additional locations.
Many general practitioners and medical specialists offer Covid-19 vaccinations, too.
