From Friday 12 to Sunday 14 November, all DMU students and staff are able to get their first, second or booster doses of the Covid-19 vaccination at a pop-up clinic at the King Power Stadium. The clinics will take place from 11am to 7pm each day.
All you need to do is make sure you have your NHS number with you and the team there will register you.
We strongly encourage all of our students (and staff) to book your vaccines as soon as you are able to do so. Getting vaccinated is our passport to maintaining the normal campus experience we love and crucially, remains the most effective way to protect both yourself and your loved ones.
There are also a series of pop-up clinics taking place across Leicestershire - you can find out more here (click on the ‘Drop-In clinics’ tab).
The Covid-19 vaccination is being offered to everyone aged 18 or over (and some 12-17 year olds). If you’re unable to attend the drop-in clinics, anyone registered with a GP can book their appointment online at a larger vaccination centre, a community pharmacy run site or at some GP run sites or phone 119.
Those of you who are registered with a GP will also receive invitations to be vaccinated from your GP practice. If you’re not registered with a GP, you can request to book the vaccine as an unregistered patient by contacting your local GP practice.
You will find specific FAQs for students on booking the vaccine here. This PDF also includes useful information for international students and if you will be in different locations for your first, second or booster doses of the vaccine.
It’s important to remember that once you have received your vaccine, you still need to comply with infection prevention and control and testing measures.
If you have any questions or concerns about getting the vaccine, please take a look at our ‘Be safe, get the Covid vaccine’ webpage where you will find FAQs, key things to know and myths, stats and facts.
