At the medical universities in Vienna, Innsbruck and Graz, or the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Linz, there will be different Corona regulations regarding compulsory vaccination in the coming semester.
The medical universities in Vienna and Innsbruck require proof of vaccination from the clinical area onwards, in Graz a 2G rule applies as far as possible and in Linz the 3G rule, it was said in response to an APA query.
1G-rule only applies in the clinical area in Vienna and Innsbruck.
However, no proof of vaccination is required for enrollment at any of the four universities. In Vienna and Innsbruck, the 1G rule applies to students, but in the clinical area – i.e. from the first patient contact. In Vienna, for example, this is the case at the end of the 2nd year of study at the latest. This means that there is a de facto vaccination obligation, since all students must pass through this area as part of their training.
2G regulation at the university in Graz
The situation is somewhat different in Graz. There, a 2G regulation applies to all students (and also employees) in principle – so you have to be vaccinated or recovered. If in special justified individual cases and in particular for medical reasons a COVID-19 vaccination has not yet taken place, a PCR test valid for 48 hours is required from these students as well as employees.
At the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Linz, there is currently no vaccination requirement for students in the clinical area – the regulations of the individual hospital operators are used as a guide. At Kepler University Hospital, the 3G rule is currently in effect – whether this will remain the case is not yet known, according to an APA inquiry.
At any rate, students and employees at all medical universities are urged to get vaccinated. In return, they will receive vouchers for the vaccination lanes in Vienna and access to the “fast lane” of the vaccination lane of the Styrian universities in Graz.
In Vienna, 19 out of 300 freshmen are currently not vaccinated
All too many students are no longer to be motivated. At present still the surveys run to the inoculation status of the study beginners and/or students. In Vienna, for example, only 19 of the 300 first-year students who have enrolled so far were not vaccinated. And even these were willing to be immunized, it was said in response to an APA query. In Innsbruck, it is assumed that 80 percent of the students are currently vaccinated and that this rate will increase to more than 90 percent at the beginning of the semester. In Graz, too, the current vaccination rate is expected to exceed 80 percent.
