Supplementary basic protection
All students on KI study programmes are offered supplementary vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus and polio, as well as measles, mumps and rubella whenever they do not have sufficient protection. Those who have followed the national vaccination programme for children in Sweden have, in most cases, sufficient vaccination protection. Student on certain study programmes are also offered vaccination against chickenpox, when immunity is deficient.
Students at Ersta Sköndal Bräcke, Red Cross and Sophiahemmet Universities are also provided with supplementary vaccinations by their respective institution.
Students whose educational programmes include patient care/clinical placement (VFU/VIL) which involve elevated risk for blood contagion are also offered vaccination against hepatitis B:
- Bachelor’s Programme in Biomedicine
- Master’s Programme in Biomedicine
- Master’s Programme in Nutrition Science
Applies to students writing their thesis in activities where vaccination is deemed necessary. Initially contact programme coordinator.
What to bring along to the vaccination clinic
- Certificate of earlier vaccinations.
- Identification (e.g. passport or driver's license)
- Certificate of registration from LADOK to varify that you are a KI student. You can even log in to Ladok or Canvas and show your startpage to the staff.
When you first visit Vaccinationsgruppen, an assessment will be made of what supplementary vaccinations you will potentially need based on your previous vaccinations and current recommendations.
