Vaccinations

How students and staff can book a Covid-19 vaccination.

On

Getting your vaccination

Everyone aged 16 and over living in the UK is eligible for a free Covid-19 vaccination, regardless of their nationality or immigration status

You should get your vaccination as soon as you are able. We’re encouraging all students and staff to book their vaccination before the start of the academic year, wherever possible.


Booking a Covid-19 vaccination

You can book a vaccine appointment at any vaccination centre convenient to you.

NHS England has published a document containing FAQs about student Covid-19 vaccinations in England, including questions about international student vaccinations.


Vaccine guidance for international students

International students who live in the UK will be able to access the Covid-19 vaccine for free.

If you have only partially completed your vaccination (for example one dose) you will be able to access the second dose here in the UK.

If you have already had both doses of a vaccine, you will not be required to have any further doses (unless you are eligible for any booster programme).

You do not need to register for a UK GP surgery to receive your vaccine in the UK. However we strongly recommend registering with our University Health Service as soon as possible upon arrival in Sheffield, so you can access help if you get poorly.

Guidance if you had your first vaccine outside of England


Updates to self-isolation rules for those fully vaccinated 

If you have been fully vaccinated in the UK, you no longer need to self-isolate if you’re identified as a close contact of someone with Covid-19. Instead you should book a free PCR test as soon as possible.
