Vaccination offers

A mobile vaccination team from the district of Lüneburg will be carrying out free Corona vaccinations without an appointment on our campus in the coming weeks. First, second and booster vaccinations will be offered. People who received a vaccine that is not approved in the EU can also receive an EU-approved vaccine on the specified dates, following appropriate counselling.

On-campus immunizations are held every Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in building C 25 (Campus Center), Room 019.

Please bring the following documents to the vaccination:

  1. ID card, driving licence or other official photo document
  2. Vaccination certificate/vaccination record (if available)
  3. The completed medical history form and the completed consent form.
    You will find the corresponding documents

    for vector vaccines (Johnson & Johnson) at (german)

There you will also find the respective information leaflets, which are for your information only.

Please get vaccinated against Covid-19 and refresh your vaccination protection according to the recommendations of the STIKO. In this way you can:

  • reduce the risk of a severe course of the disease
  • reduce and shorten your ability to become infected if you become ill
  • protect your friends, family and fellow students, especially the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions and a weakened immune system

Lower Saxony Vaccination Campaign

In a letter to the Lower Saxony State Conference of Universities ("Landeshochschulkonferenz Niedersachsen, LHK"), Minister President Stephan Weil pointed out the success of the vaccination campaign so far and, in view of more than 20 percent of the population not yet vaccinated, called for even more people to participate in the vaccination campaign. Argumentation aids, posters and service information for this purpose can be found on the campaign website

Lower Saxony also offers Novavax's protein vaccine

The first supply of the protein vaccine, which unlike the vaccines used so far is not based on mRNA or vector technology, is expected to arrive on 21 February and will be delivered directly to the states by the federal government. It will then be offered by the vaccination teams of the municipalities.

As of now, all Lower Saxonians who have not yet received a vaccination against COVID-19 can call the free number 0800 9988665 to be placed on the waiting list for a vaccination appointment with the Novavax vaccine.

Testing Station

Leuphana University Lüneburg provides the German Red Cross (DRK) with an area in building 25 (Campus Center) for a Corona testing station. It is not only available to members and relatives of the university, but also offers residents and other interested parties the opportunity to be tested for the SARS-CoV-2 virus free of charge.

The test station is open Monday to Friday from 07:45 (first test) to 13:45 (last test).

Rapid antigen tests are used for testing by trained personnel. Tested individuals can have the result sent to the Corona alert app after registration or receive a certificate of the result about 15 minutes after the test. This can be useful, for example, if one wants to use offers for which a negative test result is required.
