COVID-19

COVID-19 vaccination

We strongly encourage everyone in our community to get fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Vaccination is free for everyone in the UK, including international students.

To book your free COVID-19 vaccination, check college website on COVID-19 vaccination guidance

We encourage everyone who is vaccinated or medically exempt to complete the declaration form on MyImperial. If you are later identified as a close contact, the College’s COVID-19 Contact Tracing Hub will be able to check your details and quickly determine whether or not you need to self-isolate. 

COVID-19 test

Imperial offers two different asymptomatic testing options which are both free for students and staff. 

If you choose to use the PCR testing scheme, you should take one test per week. 

If you choose to use LFD Collect, the collection service for testing at home, you should take two tests per week. 

For more information on how to book/collect the test, including exceptions for weekly testing, please go to https://www.imperial.ac.uk/about/covid-19/testing-scheme/
