Vaccinations

 

Vaccination gives the best protection against COVID-19. We are strongly encouraging all our students and staff to get vaccinated. It protects you, your friends, your fellow students, staff at the University and the wider community against COVID-19.

You are strongly advised to get vaccinated prior to travelling to University.  Please make enquiries with your local health services to find out more details. You can find details about COVID-19 vaccines and how to arrange vaccinations in UK nations here.

If you cannot get vaccinated prior to travel, there is a walk-in centre in Aberystwyth and you can find its location online.

The vaccine is now being offered to everyone over 16 years of age, and international students and staff can also be vaccinated.
