Vaccines save lives. Getting vaccinated is important in keeping our community and loved ones safe from the effects of Covid-19.
On this page you can find information about the Covid-19 vaccine, including where to book it.
International students can receive the vaccine by registering with a GP on arrival to the UK. This can be done by finding a GP practice locally or registering online. For students on University Park and Jubilee Campus the nearest practice is Cripps Medical Centre on University Park. For students at Sutton Bonington it is Kegworth and Gotham Surgery.
Registering with a GP also means you can receive emergency care if you need it, and access health services quickly and easily while you're at university.
Students on health or social care placements
All students are encouraged to have a full course of the Covid-19 vaccination.
Coronavirus vaccination status for travelling abroad
If you're planning to travel abroad, you may need to show proof that you're vaccinated against coronavirus (Covid-19). This is your Covid-19 vaccination status. Find out more about obtaining your vaccination status on the Government website.
Advice for international students who may have had vaccines which aren’t approved by UK authorities
Students are encouraged to register with a GP practice so that they can then access whatever vaccine they may need or hopefully have their international vaccine converted to one that is recognised on the NHS App. They will only be able to do this if they are registered with a GP.
