COVID-19 Vaccinations On-Campus
The University is continuing to support and encourage everyone to be fully vaccinated against Covid – including the booster jab. In partnership with University Hospitals Birmingham (NHS) the mobile vaccination team will be popping back up on campus again for three days so that anyone who is eligible can grab a jab for the new semester!
When are the vaccinations taking place?
- Monday 31 January, 9am to 3.30pm
- Monday 7 February, 9am to 3:30pm
- Tuesday 8 February, 9am to 3.30pm
The Vaccination team will be located near Old Joe and next to the Festival Marquee so they are easy to find.
What can I expect?
The marquee will be available as a warm arrivals and waiting area.
You will be able to pop along and grab a jab, no appointment necessary, for a first, second or booster jab of the Pfizer vaccine only.
You don’t need to be registered with a GP or bring any ID to grab a jab! But it will help to bring your NHS number along, if you know it. All staff and students are welcome, the sites are open to anyone who is eligible.
You can also book a vaccination appointment through your GP or visit a local walk-in vaccination site - details here.
If you have already had your first dose you need to wait 8 weeks before you are eligible for your second dose.
If you have already had your second dose you need to wait at least three months before you can get a booster dose. And, if you have recently tested positive for Covid you have to wait for 28 days before you can have any further doses.
