COVID-19 Vaccination information for Healthcare students
JCU recommends that Healthcare students who undertake clinical placements as part of their Course requirements be vaccinated against COVID-19 to ensure they can attend clinical placement. Healthcare Students are in the 1B cohort, and most vaccination clinics will have priority appointments available for them.
Students, please use the Vaccine Eligibility Checker and book in as a Healthcare Worker to be eligible to make your first appointment and receive the first dose of the two-dose vaccination course. Remember to take your JCU Clinical ID Card and Medicare Card to your appointment.
