On-Campus Walk-in Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic 

A Walk-in Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic will run in Queen's University Belfast's Whitla Hall from Saturday 24 - Sunday 25 July, 10.00am - 6.00pm.

The clinic is open to all adults who have not yet received a first dose of any vaccine.

 

The Belfast Trust is urging anyone who has not yet had their first vaccine to please come to the Whitla Hall, get your jab, and do your bit to keep everyone safe.

The mobile clinic will administer a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and anyone getting it this week will go to a vaccination centre for their second dose in 6 weeks’ time.

For those unable to attend our mobile vaccination clinic, the Belfast Trust has vaccination slots available at the Royal Victoria Hospital Vaccine Centre, which can be booked at Get Vaccinated | COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Northern Ireland.

No appointment necessary. Just bring your photographic ID and proof of address (for example, a bill or letter from the University)!

 

"Vaccines save millions of lives every year."
