By being vaccinated, you help protect yourself and others from COVID-19. We therefore strongly recommend that all students and staff get vaccinated.
Vaccination bus at the University of Basel
In September and October, a vaccination bus will call at the University of Basel to offer walk-in vaccinations – no appointment required:
- 22 September, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm, Petersplatz
- 23 September, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm, Petersplatz

Important: the vaccination bus will only administer first vaccinations. You will be given a date for your second vaccination, which will be administered at the Basel-Stadt Coronavirus Vaccination Center.
What should I bring with me?
- Health insurance card
- ID card or other form of official identification
- Your vaccination record, if you have one
Detailed information can be found on the vaccination bus website of the Canton of Basel-Stadt.
Vaccination in the vaccination centre, in doctors' surgeries and pharmacies
If you want to be vaccinated but can’t attend on the days the bus is on campus, you can still get the vaccine at the Basel-Stadt Coronavirus Vaccination Center. You can now also be vaccinated at selected doctor’s offices and pharmacies. A constantly updated list can be found here.
For further information about the vaccine, see the FOPH website. It debunks vaccination myths, outlines possible side-effects and explains in clear terms how the vaccine works.
