Vaccination


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.

As restrictions gradually ease, 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.

Over 80% of people have received their first dose.  Take this simple step to play your part, protect yourself and those around you, both within our university community and your family and friends.

It’s possible that in time we may all need proof of vaccine for some travel and social activities and 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.


On-Campus COVID Vaccination clinics

If you haven’t already been vaccinated, you can do so at any of our pop-up vaccination clinics on campus throughout September 2021.

We are working with the Public Health Agency on their Jabbathon initiative to strongly encourage staff and students to get vaccinated against COVID-19. To make this as easy as possible we have arranged on campus walk-in vaccination centres on the Magee, Coleraine and Jordanstown campuses for any students or staff who have not yet received their first jab.

By getting vaccinated, you will be playing a vital part in getting society back to normal and reducing the threat of disruption to education and all aspects of student life.
