On-Campus Walk-in Covid-19 Vaccination Clinics 

Queen's is working with the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and the Public Health Agency to support and encourage all within our community to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

To make this as easy as possible, we have arranged on-campus walk-in vaccination clinics for anyone - students, staff or members of the public - who has not yet received their first jab.

  • 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."

Dr Lindsay Broadbent from the Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine at Queen's on vaccine safety and effectiveness.
