Register with a GP to get your COVID-19 vaccine

By Adrian 08 Jun 2021

From Tuesday 8 June, everyone in the UK aged 25 to 29 can book their first COVID-19 vaccine. If you're aged 25 or over, you can book your vaccine on the NHS website now.

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.

We strongly recommend registering with a GP practice with expertise in working with students.

All UCL students are eligible to register at Ridgmount Practice, as are all intercollegiate halls students in WC1:

All intercollegiate halls students in WC1 and W1 are eligible to register at Gower Street Practice:

The Bloomsbury Surgery is especially convenient for residents at Garden Halls, Handel Mansions, and International Hall:

  • Register online at The Bloomsbury Surgery.
  • King's and LSE students may also register with their on-campus GP practices.


    Once you're registered, you will receive an invitation to get your vaccination when the NHS reaches your age group. 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.
