UPDATE: For the latest information regarding the booster shots, please have a look at this page: https://ico.ku.edu.tr/news/covid-19-entry-to-campus-measures-vaccinations/ 
Dear KU International Community Members,


We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well.

This announcement is to inform you that booster shots for the COVID-19 vaccine are now available. Those who received their last COVID-19 vaccination 3 months ago are now eligible for a third dose of the Sinovac or Biontech/Pfizer vaccine.

Booking an Appointment Through MHRS (Central Physician Appointment System)

To get vaccinated at a hospital, you may book an appointment by using your e-Devlet account. If you have not obtained one yet, please have a look at this webpage.

The MHRS system is available both as an app and website. You can log into the system using your e-Devlet credentials. For FAQs about MHRS, please click here.

Make sure to have your passport, residence permit and HES Code with you when you go to your appointment.

Receiving Vaccination Without An Appointment

You may get vaccinated without an appointment at mobile vaccination sites allocated around the city. Make sure to have your passport, residence permit and HES Code with you when you visit them.

The nearest vaccination site KU is next to İstinye State Hospital. You can find the address on our Health & Emergency page.

For detailed information regarding the vaccination process, you may check our previous announcement.

NOTE: If you have been vaccinated abroad and have not registered your vaccinations to your HES Code yet, you must do so to be eligible for the third dose. You can find detailed information regarding this process in our Bi-Weekly News, Issue 69.


You may have a look at the COVID-19 FAQ page if you have any general questions.
