Walk-in vaccinations extended until Friday


The COVID-19 walk-in vaccination centre in Reading has extended its operation until this Friday (2 July).

All University of Reading students and colleagues aged over 18, including international students, can get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination at the Civic Offices, Bridge Street, Reading, RG1 2LU (near The Oracle) until this Friday.

The surge vaccination centre at Bulmershe Leisure Centre has now closed.

If you are currently living or working in Reading, we strongly encourage you to visit this centre if you have not yet been vaccinated. 

The centre is open 7 days a week from 09:30 to 20:30 until 2 July and is only intended for those who have not yet received their first dose of the vaccine.

You do not need to book an appointment but must take your Campus Card as proof you are a current University of Reading member of staff. If you know your NHS number, please also bring this along -  you can use the ‘Find your NHS number’ function on the NHS website, or download the ‘NHS Number’ app in your mobile app store. International students not registered with a GP can still attend.

  • If you are living away from Reading:

Everyone living in England over the age of 18 can now book a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on the NHS website. If you are not currently living in Reading, we recommend you book a centre close to you on this site.

  • If you are currently self-isolating:

If you are self-isolating due to having symptoms, testing positive, or being identified as a close contact, you must not break your self-isolation to visit one of the vaccination centres. Likewise, if you are in quarantine having travelled overseas, you must complete your full period of self-isolation before visiting a vaccination centre.

  • If you have already had your first vaccine dose:

You will need to book your second dose through the NHS website. This ‘surge vaccination’ programme is for first doses of the vaccine only.

  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 28 days:

If you have had a positive COVID-19 test, you should wait 28 days from the date you had the test before you get vaccinated.
