Covid vaccinations

Where and how to book your first and second covid vaccination.


The University Health Service does not provide covid vaccinations. Please don't call us regarding covid vaccinations as you'll be directed to this page.

Where you can get your vaccination in Sheffield

Anyone requiring a first or second dose can book a Covid-19 vaccination by calling 119 or online through the NHS booking system.

If you've not had a full course of vaccines (UK and overseas)

If you've not had a full course of COVID vaccines, either in the UK or overseas, we can look into your options in Sheffield for you.

If you're registered with us, contact our reception team on with your:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Sheffield address
  • Which vaccines you have had
  • The date you had the vaccine(s)
  • The country where you were given the vaccine

If you've just arrived in Sheffield and aren’t registered with a GP practice, you can register with UHS by completing the online registration form.

If you've not had your first or second dose

You can:

  • book an appointment through the NHS Booking System
  • go to the Sheffield NHS Vaccination Centre or Darnall Primary Care Centre (see information above)
  • call 119 to book an appointment

If your vaccine hasn't been recorded (England) 

If you had a covid vaccination in England and it hasn’t been recorded, please contact the clinic where the vaccine took place. We are unable to resolve this for you.

If the clinic was located at The Octagon, Sheffield Arena or Longley Lane, please contact:

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (STH) Patient Advice & Liaison Service (PALS)

0114 271 2400

If you need your second dose early

We cannot help in bringing forward a vaccination date unless it's for medical reasons.

The covid vaccination programme does not prioritise patients who require the covid vaccine for travel purposes. Please don't contact UHS with travel-related queries as we're unable to help, even if you're travelling as part of your university course.

If you had your vaccine outside of England 

Booking your second dose

If you had your first vaccine outside of England and need your second dose, you can go to the Darnall Primary Care Centre (walk-in hours only, see above), eight weeks after your first dose. Please take proof of your first vaccine with you.

NHS app

If you had a covid vaccination outside of England, it won't show on the NHS app. Your covid vaccination record will only flow into your NHS app if you were vaccinated in England. We’re unable to resolve this for you - as far as we’re aware, there is no current functionality for this to take place.

Recording your vaccine on your medical record

If you want your vaccine recorded on your medical records, we can do this manually for you. Please email us at with the following information:

  • your name
  • date of birth
  • address
  • proof of your vaccine

This will still not appear in your NHS app if you were vaccinated outside of England.

Vaccinations for travel 

The COVID vaccination programme doesn’t prioritise patients who need the vaccine for travel purposes. We’re unable to help with travel-related queries, even if you’re travelling as part of your university course.

You can view your Covid vaccination history via the NHS App.
