3rd-year student of the Bachelor’s programme in Journalism:
‘I decided to get vaccinated because I felt it was necessary for me and my health. I also plan to go abroad, so the certificate seems to be the only way to get anywhere. I liked that there were no queues. Medical staff were very nice to me—they helped me understand that my questions were not stupid and to calm down.’
Head of the Laws and Regulations Unit:
‘I decided to get vaccinated because my level of COVID-19 antibodies decreased. Due to the worsening epidemiological situation and desire to take care of myself and others, I signed up for vaccination. Everything went perfectly, I am very grateful for the fact that HSE University organized another vaccination drive.’
2nd-year student of the Bachelor’s programme in Business Informatics:
‘HSE University offered us to get vaccinated and it seemed very convenient to me. It is important to do it now, especially if I decide to go somewhere this summer. I liked the way everything was organized. The staff were very nice. To be honest, I was afraid that the shot might be painful. But they helped me calm down, so everything went well, and now I feel great.’
4th-year students of the Bachelor’s programme in Asian Studies:
‘I am a foreign citizen. In my country it is quite problematic to get vaccinated. I care about the health of my family, that’s why I decided to get a shot here, at HSE University.’
