All the time the UL students and employees can take advantage of the services of two stationary vaccination points at Lumumby housing estate. Anyone can go there, even international students who are not insured with the National Health Fund. It is enough to have a passport and a valid student ID card. The points also provide the third dose of the vaccine.
• NPOZ Poradnia Lekarzy Rodzinnych VITAPLUS, ul. Lumumby 3 ("Tiger" dormitory)
• Vaccination point at ul. Lumumby 14 (former head office of ZOZ PALMA)
The benefits of vaccination are obvious – we take care of our own health and show responsibility for the health of others. Unvaccinated people are 10 times more likely to be hospitalized and 11 times more likely to die from SARS-CoV-2 infection than people who have received 2 doses of the vaccine. This also applies to young people – unvaccinated teenagers are 10 times more likely to be hospitalized than teenagers who have had 2 doses of the vaccine.
The threat posed by the infection and the illness also applies to children, which we often forget about – unvaccinated people at the age of 12+ are 6 times more likely to contract SARS-CoV-2 virus and 26 more likely to be hospitalized as a result of COVID-19 than vaccinated peers. Even when we go through the infection without any symptoms there is still a risk of passing it on to our beloved ones, often elderly people who may go through the illness much more severely.
It is extremely important to go through the entire, recommended cycle, as people who have received 2 doses of the vaccine are 5 times less likely to get infected and 10 times less likely to be hospitalized and die from SARS-CoV-2 infection. Only a „full cycle” reduces the risk of contracting SARS-CoV-2 virus by 90%. Maintaining the normal functioning – with the regular operation of the University, student life, and the ability to use places of public use – is only possible by ensuring safety of all individuals who are in this together with us.
Let’s get vaccinated!
