Call to students and staff: Get the vaccine!
The University of Siegen is explicitly supporting the call from the HRK President Prof. Dr. Peter-André Alt.
In response to the “Measures for dealing with the corona pandemic” passed by the federal and state governments, Prof. Dr. Peter-André Alt, President of the University Rectors’ Conference (Hochschulrektorenkonferenz - HRK), stated on 12 August 2021 in Berlin:
“From the fall, the focus of every measure to control and overcome the corona situation will be the so-called 3G rules (access only vaccinated, recovered or tested persons), as the universities already envisage them in their plans for the winter semester. This is the only responsible way to make a broader return to classroom study possible.
As universities are unable to provide free tests, I am again appealing to all students to get the vaccine. The most important instrument in the pandemic is and remains vaccination: The progress of the vaccination campaign is a considerable factor in deciding the university’s options for the winter.”
The University of Siegen explicitly supports this call. We are all looking forward to making the university the central place for encounters and discussions with colleagues and students in winter semester 2021/22. The highest possible vaccination rate is essential for a return to the university as a place for life.
