Calling all students – don’t miss out on your COVID-19 vaccine

19 July 2021

Everyone aged 18 and over is now eligible for their COVID-19 vaccine and the NHS is urging anyone who hasn’t had theirs yet to come forward.

The NHS doesn’t want anyone to miss out and have put on additional walk in sessions to make it as easy as possible for people to get their vaccine.

You don’t need to book an appointment – simply turn up, you can even go with friends or family. See the full list of walk in sessions to find the one closest to you – www.sussexhealthandcare.uk/get-my-jab.

With rising numbers of cases of people with the virus, the NHS wants to make sure everyone has received their vaccination as quickly as possible.

If you haven’t had your first dose, arrange it today.

If you need your second vaccine, you can now have this at 8 weeks from the date of your first vaccination. Make sure you receive both to get the highest level of protection.

Need evidence of your vaccination?

For any students from outside of the UK, you can get evidence of your vaccination in a letter so you can take this proof home on your return.

You can ask for a letter 2 weeks after having your 2nd dose of the vaccine. You should get it within 5 working days.

You do not need to be registered with a GP surgery or have an NHS login for this.

You can get a letter by:
