The academic community of Lublin, together against COVID-19

On the initiative of the Lublin Union of Universities (Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, University of Life Sciences, Lublin University of Technology, Medical University) and the Lublin Voivode, with the participation of the Mayor of Lublin City, Public Transport Authority, Municipal Transport Company in Lublin and the II Lublin Territorial Defense Brigade, action will be carried out "Vaccination stop."

The academic community of Lublin, together with local and provincial authorities, in solidarity and care for mutual security, on 27th September of this year., Have signed a cooperation agreement to support vaccination against COVID-19. As part of the initiative, on 30th September and on 1st and 4th October of this year between 9.00-16.00, in the vaccination bus located in front of the Medical Simulation Center of the Medical University of Lublin (4 Chodźki Street), vaccinations will be held for students and employees of Lublin universities, their families, as well as for all residents of Lublin interested in vaccination.

During the campaign, Miejskie Przedsiębiorstwo Komunikacyjne (MPK) will provide a dedicated bus that will cover a unique route located at Lublin universities. The route will run in a loop, starting from the Felin area, through the university campus, and ending at the "Vaccination stop" located at the Medical University. Additionally, a special helpline will be launched, where the number (81) 466 34 34 ext. 4, where people with disabilities will be able to order transport by a special bus that will take them to the vaccination bus, i.e. to 4 Chodźki Street in Lublin. Transport provided by MPK Lublin will be equipped with an air disinfection system, and the journey will be free of charge for all people intending to get vaccinated.

We would also like to add that as part of cooperation with the Public Transport Authority, the spots of the # SzczepimySię campaign will be displayed on the LCD monitors on public transport buses, and posters promoting the initiative in various language versions will be posted.

The campaign is aimed at students of all universities in Lublin, academic teachers, adult school students, residents of Lublin and foreigners staying in our city.

Note: during the campaign, eligible persons will also be able to take the THIRD dose of the COVID-19 vaccine (or the second, if previously vaccinated with J&J preparation).

You will not need a separate referral to participate in the vaccination.

Only an ID card or passport will be needed.

People participating in the campaign will receive preparation from Pfizer-BioNTech or Johnson & Johnson.

All formalities, i.e. completing the personal questionnaire and qualification for vaccination - will be carried out on the spot at the Medical Simulation Centre. The II Lublin Territorial Defense Brigade will organizationally support the entire undertaking. Each participant of the action after vaccination will receive a "surprise" gift signed by the organizers.

The action is organized given the developing fourth wave of the coronavirus epidemic and aims to mobilize Lublin's academic community to vaccinate. Lubelskie Voivodeship is in the group of administrative units with the lowest level of vaccination of inhabitants. The return to the traditional form of academic functioning of the city, universities, institutions, labour market, services, culture, sports, etc., requires stabilizing the epidemic situation in the country and the region. We want our academic centre to be vibrant and developing again. For this to happen, we must show responsibility for our own and our relatives' health, but also solidarity and care for the health of our colleagues and friends. Getting vaccinated is not only protection against a severe course of the disease if we fall ill, but also a greater level of safety for our parents, grandparents, children and friends.

Detailed information is available at the public telephone number: 538 518 189.

We encourage you to take advantage of the action.
