3 June 2021

As of Tuesday 8 June, everyone in the UK aged 25 or over can now get a COVID-19 vaccination, and younger age groups should be invited for their vaccination in the coming weeks. Make sure you're registered with a GP to receive your invite.

From Tuesday 8 June, everyone in the UK aged 25 to 29 will be able to book their first COVID-19 vaccine. It is expected that everyone over the age of 18 will be invited in the next few weeks.

In order to receive your vaccination invite, it is very important that you are registered with a GP surgery.

UCL students living in or around the Bloomsbury area are strongly encouraged to register at Ridgmount Practice (UCL's partner GP surgery).

Register online at Ridgmount Practice.

Once you're registered, you will receive an invitation to get your vaccination through Ridgmount's partner The Bloomsbury Surgery in due course, when the NHS reaches your age group.

Important: you do not need to contact your GP surgery to request a vaccination. You will be contacted by SMS and/or email in due course.

If you're under the age of 25, please check national news regularly for updates on when your age group will be able to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
