Mandela University Student Vaccination Progress


The University’s dedicated Student Vaccination Centre on North Campus and its sister site on George Campus are expected to become increasingly busy once students returning for the second semester have completed their ten-day compulsory quarantine periods.

As of yesterday (25 August), 539 Mandela University students had received the first of their two Pfizer vaccinations in Gqeberha and at George Campus.

Support Plans for Students
Various plans are in place to support students in getting to vaccination sites, especially those living in off-campus accommodation. This information, as part of a broader Student Vaccination Campaign, will systematically be shared with students.  

Student Vaccination Campaign
This campaign is aimed at encouraging students to be vaccinated to protect themselves and others, and to enable the return to some semblance of normality on campus once community immunity has been achieved (67% of staff and students have been vaccinated).

Everyone 18 years and older can now register for the vaccine  and once registered, can go to any public vaccination site. You do not have to come the University, but the campus sites were especially established to support both Mandela University staff and students.
