If Luxembourgish students are enrolled at a university abroad which demands that they be vaccinated in order to return, they can be prioritised for vaccination.

In order to receive a vaccine early, students must submit their social security number and formal proof that their university has introduced this obligation.

Classes at a large number of universities resume in August, which is why affected students will now be able to apply and receive an invitation to get vaccinated.

This solution is the result of negotiations between the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Higher Education, and the Association of Luxembourg Student Unions (ACEL).

Minister of Health Paulette Lenert confirmed this information in a recent reply to an urgent parliamentary question on the subject by MPs Djuna Bernard and Josée Lorsché from the Green Party (Déi Gréng).
