COVID-19 vaccines and testing

Students in queue waiting to be tested.

Vaccinations are now available in the UK for anyone aged 16 or over and UAL encourages all our staff and students to be vaccinated. Vaccinations are being offered free of charge at local sites run by GPs, community pharmacies, larger vaccination centres, walk-in sites and in some hospitals. Booster vaccinations are now available for everyone over the age of 18.

We also encourage staff and students who have no symptoms of COVID-19 to have regular tests. You can make use of community testing in your area, collect tests from a nearby pharmacy or order rapid lateral flow tests online for home testing. We strongly advise you to get tested twice each week.
