The vaccination station is for the inhabitants of Grimstad, but both students and employees at UiA can also benefit from the offer. The centre will have the capacity to vaccinate 700 people every day.

Open Saturday 15 January

The vaccination centre is open Saturday from 10:00 to 14:00 hours. Thursday and Friday the centre is closed.

Initially the vaccination centre will be open for the first two weeks of the new year, from Tuesday 4 January to Saturday 15 January.

Parking on campus will be changed during this period. The guest car park in front of the main building will be reserved for those who come to get vaccinated, as will the roof of the old car park.

Appointment booking

Although it is possible to drop in at the centre without an appointment, it is a good idea to book an appointment. It is also easy if you follow the instructions on the link below.

Coronavirus vaccination in Grimstad.

ID

You must bring photo ID, and if you are going to have the second dose or the booster dose (number 3), you must bring documentation of previous doses. Everyone received a vaccination card at the first dose of the vaccine, which also indicates which vaccine you received - Pfizer or Moderna for most people.

Grimstad’s vaccination programme uses vaccines from Pfizer/BioNTech, also called Comirnaty, and from Moderna, also called Spikevax.

Good cooperation

“We would like to thank you for all the help we received setting up the Armed Forces’ vaccination centre at Bluebox in Grimstad. There is large capacity, and we would like to offer a booster dose - or first or second doses for those who have not taken them yet - to everyone at UiA”, Municipal Manager Petter N. Toldnes in Grimstad municipality says in a message to the university director.

The invitation applies to students and employees from both campuses.

“We greatly appreciate the cooperation we have with Grimstad municipality, so this is completely mutual. Great with vaccination offers to everyone at UiA as well”, University Director Seunn Smith-Tønnessen responds.

The health authorities and the government recommend that everyone get vaccinated, except for those who have medical reasons not to. Vaccines provide a high degree of protection against getting seriously ill, also against the new omicron variant of the coronavirus.

Vaccination in Kristiansand

All students and staff can drop in at the vaccination centre or book an appointment - which is more time efficient. Here you see how to book an appointment.

Drop-in will now be available on Wednesdays, from 14:00 to 19:00. During the drop-in time, there is no appointment booking.

Remember: There must be 4,5 month between the second and the third dose (booster). Vaccination for the booster-dose opens 7 January for people between 30 and 44 years, and 17 January for peole betweeen 18 and 29 years.
