COVID-19 – Healthy habits and vaccination offer 25 October

Since the removal of national COVID-19 restrictions earlier this year, many of our daily routines have returned to normal. Of course, COVID-19 remains a part of life, and there are some healthy habits that we can all adopt to help us stay safe:

  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly and ensure workspaces remain well ventilated
  • Continue to respect everyone’s space and for some, their continued personal choice to wear a face covering
  • Receive all COVID-19 vaccine doses you are eligible for as soon as possible
  • Check in on friends and be kind to each other.

Mobile vaccination unit – 25 October 10:30am – 2:30pm

On Tuesday 25 October, our local Public Health team will bring their mobile vaccination unit to the pedestrian area outside the Checkland building on the Falmer campus. The unit will offer first, second and third doses of the Pfizer vaccine as well as autumn booster doses (Pfizer bivalent) for eligible colleagues and students.

Students and colleagues based at any of our campuses are welcome to attend. You can check your eligibility for each of the four available doses in the table below.
