Your vaccination is important

Although it’s a personal choice, we strongly encourage our students and staff to take up the opportunity to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive the booster when eligible.

The more of us who are vaccinated, the more we can reduce transmission and the consequent requirements for self-isolation, as well as any personal health consequences if you do catch the virus.

Take this simple step to play your part, protect yourself and those around you, both within our university community and your family and friends.

With proof of vaccine being introduced for some travel and social activities, getting vaccinated will mean you don’t miss out.

This guidance is informed by The Public Health Agency (PHA), Ulster University’s Independent Expert Advisory Panel and supported by our Students’ Union and recognised employee trade unions.

Getting vaccinated

Getting your vaccine couldn’t be easier.

Visit NI DIRECT for all the information you need on getting a COVID-19 vaccination and booster in Northern Ireland.  Health and Social Care (HSC) Trust vaccination hubs across NI are providing COVID-19 vaccine booster doses, as well as first and second doses to those who are not yet vaccinated.

GPs and participating pharmacies are also providing boosters for those currently eligible, while pharmacies are available for first and second COVID-19 vaccine doses to everyone aged 18 and over.

You will also find helpful answers to some of the questions you may have, as well as information on the safety of the three vaccines in use in Northern Ireland.

Further information is also available from the Public Health Agency.
