We stand together. Vaccinate against Corona.

Experts from the Friedrich Schiller University answer questions about vaccinating against COVID-19. What is the care like in the intensive care unit? Are there reasons not to get vaccinated? Are young people less at risk of contracting post-COVID syndrome? Or: Should pregnant women get vaccinated?

Questions like these are answered by Prof. Dr. Andreas Stallmach (Director of the Clinic for Internal Medicine IV at Jena University Hospital), Prof. Dr. Michael Bauer (Director of the Clinic for Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine at Jena University Hospital), PD Dr. Dr. Petra Dickmann (Head of Public Health at the Clinic for Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine at Jena University Hospital), Dr. med. Andrea Steiner (company physician at the University of Jena) and Prof. Dr. med. Ekkehard Schleußner (Director of the Clinic for Obstetrics at the University Hospital Jena) as well as Prof. Dr. med. Mathias Pletz (Director of the Institute for Infectious Medicine and Hospital Hygiene at the University of Jena).
