On this page you will find all important information and links about vaccination at RWTH.

Vaccination bus of the city region

Two vaccination buses are currently on the road in the StädteRegion Aachen, offering uncomplicated vaccinations without an appointment. One vaccination bus will be on the Templergraben directly in front of the main building of the RWTH on Oktober 8th, from 11:30 am to 7 pm.

Vaccination at the University Medical Center

The University Medical Center offers Corona vaccinations at the University Hospital Aachen. Currently, the mRNA vaccine Comirnaty from BioNTech / Pfizer is vaccinated there. Vaccination requires a free appointment booking through RWTH. A single appointment booking is possible.

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to bring with me?
For vaccination at the vaccination bus, you must bring an ID card (or a comparable document for identification). A yellow vaccination pass, while beneficial, is not required for vaccination.
You will find out all the information about what you need to bring to a vaccination at the University Medical Center when you book your appointment.
Do I need a yellow vaccination pass?

No. You can get vaccinated everywhere even without a yellow vaccination pass. Of course, the vaccination pass is worthwhile, since this is internationally recognized. If you do not have the vaccination card with you, you can have the vaccination transferred to your vaccination pass later at a doctor’s office or have a new vaccination pass issued.

Is there anything I need to be aware of when booking a single appointment at the university medical center?
In any case, please bring the necessary documentation of a first vaccination or proof of recovery with you to the arranged vaccination appointment. This is the only way that a proper, medical consultation can take place at the University Medical Center. When scheduling your appointment, please take into account the minimum vaccination intervals of 3 (BioNTech) or 4 (heterologous vaccination) weeks set by the Standing Vaccination Commission. If you are unable to attend the appointment or have already attended an appointment for vaccination elsewhere, please notify the University Medical Center immediately via email at In particular, please refrain from making multiple reservations.
Where is the university medical center located?

The vaccination through the university medical center takes place in the Spiegelsaal of the Uniklinik RWTH Aachen (floor E, corridor 03, room 01). The route in the Uniklinikum is marked with signs. You can find a description of the way in this YouTube video:
