Information on measles protection according to the German Protection against Infection Act (Infektionsschutzgesetz)
Measles protection according to the Infection Protection Act has been in effect since March 2020 and is mandatory for all students at the Niederrad Campus. This means that you must provide us with proof of your measles protection in order to attend courses.
The aim of the law is to improve individual protection against measles, especially for people who regularly come into contact with others in healthcare facilities. Thus, in the medium to long term, the global goal of the WHO is to completely eliminate measles. More information on this can be found on the . pages of the Federal Ministry of Health
People are considered protected if they have received two measles vaccinations in their lifetime or have serologically proven immune protection.
Please contact your family doctor in this regard. The measles vaccination is usually covered by the statutory health insurance as a catch-up vaccination.
