Vaccination Information Centre

Welcome to the University of Wollongong Vaccination Information site for the UOW community.

There's no denying that the COVID-19 pandemic has had dramatic impact on many facets of our lives over the last 18 months. To bring this pandemic to an end, a large share of the world needs to be immune to the virus that causes COVID-19.

The safest way to achieve this is a vaccine. Vaccines are a technology that humanity has often relied on to bring down the death toll of infectious diseases. The COVID-19 vaccine is a crucial step people can take to protect themselves, their friends, families and colleagues. 

This site is to help you understand the COVID-19 vaccinations available, locations and a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to help you make informed decisions around vaccination. We’ve compiled the information for you.

First and foremost, we want to ensure our staff and students remain safe and healthy and informed on how to do so. UOW has a range of information available on our response to COVID-19, including information regarding studying in 2021, online learning, student financial assistance, mental health, and wellbeing and UOW accommodation updates on UOW's COVID-response site for current and future students.  

For the latest COVID-19 updates and information, visit the NSW Government website. 

Please note the following statement from the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) in response to the NSW COVID-19 outbreak - 24 July 2021 

The vaccination information provided by the University of Wollongong is for general purpose only. Please seek advice from your own medical practitioner to discuss your individual circumstances.
