The clinics will run from 27-28 September at our Holloway Road campus, and 4-5 October at our Aldgate campus.
Date: 16 September 2021
London Met is working with the NHS to offer pop-up Covid vaccine clinics on its campuses, with the Pfizer vaccine. No booking is required - just turn up.
The clinics will take place:
- 9am - 5pm, 27 and 28 September at the Costa Blue Met Lounge, Holloway Road campus, and;
- 9am - 5pm, 4 and 5 October at the Washhouses, Aldgate campus.
You should wear a face covering, ensure you have proof of a recent negative Covid test, and bring your NHS number if you know it; but if you don't, providing your surname and the postcode with which you are registered with a GP will be enough. The entire process - including a 15 minute waiting time after the vaccine - should take no more than 25 minutes.
All staff and students continue to be strongly advised to get vaccinated as soon as possible – to protect yourself and others.
In addition, the School of Human Sciences' Dr Una Fairbrother will be delivering an online talk, Vaccination, Covid, and You, ahead of the clinics. This will take place on 23 September from 12-1pm on Collaborate.
Three reasons to get vaccinated:
- You could win a prize!
All students who are vaccinated at our pop up clinics will receive coffee vouchers, while two lucky winners will win a laptop.
- Getting vaccinated significantly reduces the risk of death or serious illness from Covid-19
For every 200 deaths from Covid, only one is from someone double-vaccinated. In addition, the risk of 'long Covid' halves after double vaccination.
- Vaccines will help us go back to normal
The more people who have vaccinations, the more protection our population has. The more people don’t, the more flare-ups of the disease there will be over time.
