Back by popular demand: Covid-19 vaccinations on campus

Have you had your Covid-19 vaccination yet? Now is your time – the vaccination clinic on campus will be back on Friday 29 October! 

So if you looking for a place to get your first dose, or it’s time to get your second, pop into the clinic in Haere-roa:

You won’t need to make an appointment, you can just drop in. Everyone is welcome, so bring along your friends, family and flatmates too.  We’ll have free kai and music as well. Get vaccinated, get a free burger…it’s good all round!  

Please make sure you wear a face covering and maintain physical distancing at all times.

Super Saturday: get vaccinated

With summer just 8 weeks away, we need everyone to book their first vaccine appointment now. This will ensure everyone can get two doses and enjoy everything a classic Kiwi summer has to offer.

Here’s the bottom line – the more of us that are fully vaccinated, the more protection we’ll have against Covid-19 and the more freedom we’ll have as we work our way back to reopening the country safely.

We all have a role to play in getting our friends, whānau and communities vaccinated – this is why we’re joining the Canterbury District Health Board in asking you in supporting our national day of action this Saturday 16 October – Super Saturday.

Huge turnout at UC pop-up Covid-19 vaccination clinics

Thank you to everyone who came along to get vaccinated at the campus drop-in clinics last week. We had over 2000 students, staff and members of the local community through the doors, and an extra clinic was put on to meet demand. 

A big shout out to the wonderful UC Wellbeing volunteers who welcomed everyone into the clinics, directed people to vaccination booths and handed out free burgers and lollies. 

The UC team is hoping to organise another vaccination clinic for the end of October, details to be confirmed. We’ll let you know when we have more information. 

If you didn’t get a chance to get your vaccine last week, make the most of Super Saturday on 16 October. There’ll be clinics open throughout the motu, all day and into the evening. Find out more here> 

Getting vaccinated will protect you, your mates, whānau and our community against Covid-19 , and will help to safely lift restrictions across Aotearoa New Zealand.
