COVID Vaccines & GP Registration
We’re encouraging all of our students to have the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible. It’s one of the things we can all do to help prevent the spread of the disease, keep each other safe and help us all return to our normal lives.
If you are a Cardiff resident and have yet to receive the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination, we recommend you visit the Bayside Mass Vaccination Centre which is situated in the old Toys R Us Building in Cardiff Bay. The centre is operating as a walk-in service, offering first doses of the Covid-19 vaccination every weekend between 8am and 4pm for anyone over 18 who lives, studies or works in Cardiff.
If you are moving to Cardiff to study with us for the new academic year and have yet to receive your first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, we suggest you check with your local GP about getting the first dose before you move. If it is unavailable to you, you should attend the Bayside Mass Vaccination Centre as soon as you arrive in Cardiff.
We also advise all our students living in Cardiff to register with a GP. Once you’ve moved, you can register using our
Cardiff GP Registration Form.
If you have any queries you can contact Admissions on email@example.com or 029 2041 6010 or Enrolment on firstname.lastname@example.org or 029 2041 5669.
