Student information about education regarding COVID-19
[Updated 2022-05-20] This information briefing to Karolinska Institutet’s students is updated continually. Students are urged to keep themselves informed in order to find out about and act upon the latest recommendations.
The Swedish Public Health Agency and the government will phased out most measures against COVID-19 on 9 February. In terms of teaching, this meant that the president’s request to conduct distance teaching was removed.
KI encourages students and employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Find Information on how to get the vaccine on 1177.se.
If you do not have a Swedish personal number:
Contact your closest healthcare centre (Vårdcentral) to make an appointment. You can either use the search tool "Hitta vård" (in Swedish) to find your closest healthcare centre or you can call the Swedish healthcare service 1177 directly (available in English) for contact details.
If you have been vaccinated against COVID-19 in Stockholm but do not have a personal identification number or coordination number, you have had your vaccinations registered on a reserve number. To receive your COVID certificate call the phone support number: 08-123 365 78.
The COVID certificate will be sent to you as a registered letter. You must have a valid ID document such as a passport, ID, or driver's license to collect the covid certificate. LMA cards are not valid.
If you have taken the second dose in another EU country, you can get a vaccination certificate there.
If you have been vaccinated in a country outside the EU or EEA you can get a vaccination certificate in Sweden in certain cases. Read more about what applies on the Swedish eHealth agency's website.
