Health and vaccinations

Make sure you know who your term-time doctor is, and which vaccinations you need to have.

Key tasks

Register with a doctor

If you are moving to Sheffield to attend Hallam, you should register with our student health centre. You can do this online, and you don't have to wait until you have moved in.

Register with Student Health at Sheffield Hallam.

Check your vaccinations

You should have had vaccinations for:

  • MMR (measles, mumps and rubella)
  • meningitis

Meningitis is particularly important if you are under 25. If you are not sure whether you have been vaccinated, check with a parent or carer, or ask your doctor.

If you do need the MMR or meningitis vaccines, contact your doctor. Try to get vaccinated a few weeks before you start university, as immunity takes time to develop.


All adults aged 18 or over (or within three months of their 18th birthday) can now book a Covid-19 vaccination.

We strongly encourage you to book your vaccinations as soon as you can if you’re medically able to - getting vaccinated is important in limiting transmission and protecting yourself, course-mates and the wider community.

You can book your first, second or both vaccinations when in Sheffield, whether you’re moving into the area locally or travelling from overseas as an international student.
