The University of Ostrava Opens Its Own Vaccination Centre

From August 16, 2021, the University of Ostrava opens its own vaccination centre thanks to the Faculty of Medicine. It will serve not only to employees and students but to the wide public as well, so to anyone who, from various reasons, has not been vaccinated against COVID-19 yet.

There are several reasons for the opening of the vaccination centre of the University of Ostrava against the COVID-19 infection in the premises of the Faculty of Medicine. “In the near future, it is planned to close the large-capacity vaccination centre at the Exhibition Centre Černá louka. We will be thus able to replace the reduced capacity when this happens,” says Rastislav Maďar, the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.

The vaccination centre will be opened from August 16, on Mondays and Tuesdays from 12:00 to 15:00. The opening hours might be extended in the future if needed. It will be located in the premises of the Faculty of Medicine on  Syllabova 19 street, in the main building ZY (building part B). The operation of the centre is planned to meet all the anti-epidemic measures, the entrance is fully barrier free and it is possible to park for free near the building.

The vaccination is available to everyone. People can register via the central reservation system where they choose the Faculty of Medicine, University of Ostrava, as the place for the vaccination. The Pfizer vaccine will be available. “At the Faculty of Medicine, we know that the vaccination against COVID-19 is important not only for the vaccinated people themselves, but for the whole society, as it can prevent new coronavirus mutations,” explains Rastislav Maďar.

The university would like to encourage its unvaccinated students to take advantage of this opportunity and visit the UO vaccination centre. Thanks to this, it will be possible to have a normal semester with in-person classes, students will get to know their classmates and teachers, enjoy practical teaching and have real student experience without epidemiological restrictions.

The services of the vaccination centre that will be created in the half of August at the Faculty of Medicine, will be continuously expanded in the autumn by the offer of vaccines against other diseases, including travel medicine.
