    Based on the definitions of §22a of the Infection Protection Act (IfSG) of March 18, 2022, proof of vaccination is evidence regarding the existence of complete vaccination protection against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
    For this purpose, the underlying protective vaccinations must have been given with one or more vaccines approved by the European Union (or approved abroad and identical in formulation to a vaccine approved in the European Union). These are listed on the pages of the Paul Ehrlich Institute.
    Until September 30, 2022, the following will be accepted as proof of complete vaccination protection:
    - Proof of two vaccinations
    - Proof of one vaccination plus proof of infection from day 29 after positive PCR test.
    - Evidence of infection from day 29 to day 90 after positive PCR test.
    - Proof of infection plus vaccination from day of vaccination; proof of infection by positive PCR test result or by qualified antibody test performed by a laboratory accredited according to DIN EN ISO 15189.

    As of October 1, 2022, proof of complete vaccination protection is:
    - Proof of three individual vaccinations and last individual vaccination took place at least three months after the second vaccination (1st vaccination - 2nd vaccination - 3rd vaccination).
    - Proof of two single vaccinations plus specific antibody test proof, which took place before the single vaccinations (antibody test - 1st vaccination - 2nd vaccination)
    - Evidence of two single vaccinations plus infection; the infection occurred before the second vaccination and is detected with positive PCR test result (1st vaccination - infection - 2nd vaccination)
    - Evidence of two single vaccinations plus infection from day 29 after positive PCR test result (1st vaccination - 2nd vaccination - infection).

    Since March 15, 2022, employees and students must provide proof of complete vaccination protection if they work within the buildings of the UKGM or in areas of the university outpatient clinics. This is based on §20a of the Infection Protection Act and, in addition to other measures, serves to protect vulnerable people at particular risk from infection with the coronavirus.

    If no proof of complete vaccination protection is presented, these employees and students must be reported to the health authority. If proof is also not presented to the appropriate authority, the Health Department may issue a ban on entry. Philipps-Universität will then consider measures under labor law, such as a leave of absence without continued pay or termination. When hiring, proof of full vaccination coverage must be presented to the Human Resources Department prior to signing a contract.

    Students cannot attend courses on the premises of the UKGM or the areas of the university outpatient clinics without full vaccination protection. This includes the UKGM clinic buildings (in Baldingerstraße, Alfred-Kossel-Straße, Rudolf-Bultmann-Str., Hans-Sachs-Str. and Georg-Voigt-Straße) as well as the university outpatient clinic areas in Karl-von-Frisch-Straße 4, Bunsenstraße 2, Gutenbergstraße 29, Schulstraße 12 and the 3rd floor of Gutenbergstraße 18.

    Please note that as of October 1, 2022, proof of full immunization coverage will change.
