Vaccination: how to get it, and FSS refund policy
If you haven't already been vaccinated against Covid-19 you now have numerous options as a self payer (if you have European Health Insurance or Czech Pubic health insurance, you should also follow the information on how to register for the vaccine without paying).
For more information about the possibilities for Self Payers, please visit the governmental website.
As always, test results and vaccination certificates should be uploaded into the IS.
For more information about vaccination and booster shots please visit the MU website.
FSS students should first try to be reimbursed by their health insurance company. Foreigners.cz has written an article about the process to do so for the different insurance companies.
If your insurance company doesn't reimburse you, you can request reimbursement from FSS. In order to do so, you must have completed both doses of the vaccine (or in the case of Johnson and Johnson just the 1 dose) and have the proof of payment, or that it was only for the booster shot. Please email Klára Němečková at email@example.com to set up a time to meet with her to fill out the paperwork for reimbursement.
This policy will continue through the spring 2022 semester to prove our students more time to get vaccinated and obtain the booster doses.
Please use this link to find out if the vaccination certificate from your country is recognized in the Czech Republic Only certificated from countries on the list are recognized here and only vaccination by vaccine authorised by the European Medicines Agency (Vaxzevria/AstraZeneca; Spikevax/Moderna; Comirnaty/Pfizer; Janssen) or a vaccine manufactured in accordance with a patent for the above vaccines that is approved by the World Health Organization for emergency use (the Covishield vaccine) are recognized.
If you are vaccinated by other vaccine or if your certificate is from a country which is not on the list, you are considered as unvaccinated by the Czech government. This means that all current rules apply to you, so you have to stay in 5 days self-isolation after travelling from red/dark-red country and get the PCR test after these 5 days.
