Pop-up campus vaccination centres

The NHS is operating pop-up vaccination centres at the University of Glasgow

Vaccination locations and dates

  • Garscube campus: mobile unit outside the Garscube Sports Complex (West of Scotland Science Park, Maryhill Road, Glasgow, G20 0SP) Friday 24 September.  No appointment required.
  • Murano Street Student Village: 25 September. No appointment required.

Opening times for all vaccination centres:

  • 10:00 - 13:30
  • 14:15 - 18:00 [last appointment is 17:50]

Apppointments take 10 minutes, followed by a 15 minute observation. Do not visit a vaccination centre if you are self-isolating.

Vaccination doses

The NHS team will give you the most appropriate vaccination based on your personal circumstances.

Pfizer will be available as a first dose for anyone aged 16-39 years of age (Moderna for those over 39).  Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available as a second dose for anyone who is 8 weeks from their first dose (any age). Please bring any information about your first vaccination to your appointment.

AstraZeneca is not available at our campus clinics but is available from an NHS drop in centre.

Register with a GP

The only way the NHS can record your vaccination history is if you are registered with a GP. You can register after your first vaccination, but you must register before your second vaccination. The NHS cannot link your vaccination history if you do not register,. This may cause problems in the future if you want to travel or if restrictions are placed on accessing certain facilities without proof of being fully vaccinated.

International students

If you have received a first vaccine that isn’t available in the UK, but want to get a second vaccination here, the most similar alternative will be offered to you by NHS staff. Please bring any information about your first vaccination to your appointment.

If you received 2 vaccinations before arriving in the UK, you may be eligible for a third vaccination depending on the vaccine type [see Vaccine Interchangeability Guidance (Appendix 1)]

Students on an overseas placement when your second vaccination is due, should contact the health service in the country where you will be resident at the time.

Vaccination status

We strongly encourage you to get two vaccinations, but this is not required to access any facilities on campus. This approach is informed by Scottish Government public health policy and may be subject to change.

If you have had 2 vaccinations in the UK, we do not expect you will need another at this time. The NHS will begin a booster vaccination programme in the autumn for the most clinically vulnerable members of society.
