Vaccinations

Getting vaccinated is an important part of protecting ourselves, our friends, family and community from Covid-19. Current programmes have already shown that it prevents hospitalisation and saves lives.

All over 16s in the UK are now being offered the opportunity to book their two vaccine appointments which are provided free-of-charge.

You do not need to have both appointments in the same place. You are free to have one at your home address and one at your term-time address, whatever works best for you.

More information about the UK Covid-19 vaccination programme is available online.

An NHS student vaccination FAQ is also now available.
