Let’s stop the spike – NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Bus visits Edinburgh College

The NHS COVID-19 Vaccination Bus will visit Edinburgh College campuses and nearby locations over the coming weeks to offer an opportunity for students and staff to get vaccinated.

Students and staff (as well as members of the public from the surrounding areas) are invited to drop in on any of the below dates to receive either their first or second vaccine. Anyone coming to receive their second vaccine, must ensure it has been at least eight weeks after they have received their first dose.

You can find out more about how vaccines work and how they are used to help protect us from COVID-19 here.

Which vaccines are available

Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Modera vaccines will be available at each location. Remember, you need to get two doses of the vaccination to give you protection. If you have had one vaccination, please arrange to have a second one.
