Returning students urged to register for vaccination

Tue, 15 Jun 2021


Students returning to the Isle of Man will be offered their two doses of COVID-19 vaccine during the summer break.

Special vaccination clinics have been arranged for the end of June and beginning of July for first doses of the Moderna vaccine. Second appointments will be available eight weeks later, to ensure students have had the full course before they head back to University.

Student clinics will be held on 26 June, and 6 and 7 July at the Chester Street vaccination hub in Douglas for first doses, with 30 and 31 August and 1 September earmarked for second appointments.

Those who wish to receive the vaccine need to be registered with a local GP (either normally on Island or temporarily if already registered with a GP in the UK) and with the vaccination booking team at 111. When calling to register, students should advise the team they are a returning student.

In addition to the dedicated student clinics, the team is planning final first dose clinics at the end of July for those who have delayed coming forward. Anyone who wishes to receive a vaccine should register immediately by calling 111.  

Residents are also reminded that those turning 18 years of age are asked to register with 111 on or after their birthday, when they become eligible to receive the vaccine.
