Student vaccination – a sector statement

​University leaders are encouraging new and existing students to take up the opportunity to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible.

In a joint letter published today, sector representatives have outlined the ways higher education providers are engaging, explaining and encouraging new and existing students to get vaccinated. This includes amplifying and supporting the strong messages from government on how students can access a vaccination, whether they are in their term-time address or elsewhere, and working with public health locally to offer facilities as pop-up vaccination sites over the summer and leading into the new academic year.

The signatories also acknowledge the tremendous sacrifices made by all students this year, and point to evidence which suggests that vaccine intent remains high among higher education students.
