Tallinn University of Technology

The Tallinn University of Technology advises its students and staff who are not yet vaccinated to get their jabs as soon as possible so that everyone would be effectively protected against the coronavirus by the start of the new academic year. This will enable us to keep our university open.


TalTech is offering an opportunity to get vaccinated without pre-registration and on a first-come first-served basis. Our vaccination partner is Qvalitas, who will be bringing their vaccination buses to administer vaccines:

  • in the car park of TalTech’s main building in Mustamäe on 24 and 31 August from 10:00 to 17:00;
  • in front of the Estonian Maritime Academy (Kopli 101) on 2 September from 10:00 to 17:00.
  • at TalTech’s Virumaa College (Järveküla tee 75, Kohtla-Järve) vaccinations will be provided on the premises of the college on 2 September from 10:00 to 15.00.
  • at science and business park Tehnopol  (Central Square next to the Green Room) on August 30th from 10.00 to 17.00

Vaccinations will be provided on the basis of an identity document and will be free of charge.

In addition to the students and staff of the university, their loved ones as well as all nearby residents are welcome to use these vaccination opportunities.

Information about vaccination opportunities across Estonia without pre-registration or pre-booking can be found HERE.

Vaccination centres where no pre-registration is required nearest to the Mustamäe campus are located in the cultural centre Kaja and at the North-Estonian Regional Hospital.

Vaccination is necessary because the Government of the Republic is planning to establish different opportunities for participation in work and learning activities depending on whether a person is protected against the virus either through vaccination or previous COVID-19 infection. It is important for the stable operation of the university that its students and staff be vaccinated.

TalTech’s Director for Facilities Aivar Uutar has noted the following: ‘Timely vaccination is especially important for our new students – both Estonian and foreign citizens – so that they are able to commit fully to their studies and research activities.’

Reasons to get vaccinated:

  • the likelihood of (severe) illness decreases;
  • classroom training (lectures, seminars, exercises, consultations) can be conducted;
  • the need for self-isolation decreases;
  • the library and sports club can be kept open;
  • possible to travel for business;
  • performing arts activities (choir or dance practice) can take place;
  • possible to hold first-year student initiation events and other social gatherings;
  • number of sick days decreases.
