Grafton, Newmarket and Tai Tonga campuses

Pop-up vaccination clinics were held on these campuses late April through to mid-May. Staff and students who were unable to attend them but are still wanting to get a University-paid flu vaccination need to come to City Campus, Unichem Campus Pharmacy.

Eligible staff and students can obtain their flu vaccination locally from Kensington Pharmacy with no upfront cost. Just present your Campus Card. No booking is required.

Leigh Marine Laboratory and Goldie Estate staff only

Unfortunately we are not able to offer University funded flu vaccinations at these locations, therefore eligible staff working at Leigh and Goldie are able to obtain the vaccine off-campus at their  local medical centre or pharmacy, and claim reimbursement using Concur. The standard refund amount is $35.

Concur guides relating to reimbursement are available on the Finance
user manuals and guides page on the staff intranet

Students are entitled to a University-funded flu vaccination at City Campus if they are able to travel there.

Covid-19 vaccination booster

Covid-19 vaccine boosters will be available at the same appointment as the flu shot. Boosters provide an extra layer of protection to your previous vaccination and keep your immunity levels high.
