On Thursday 9 September, the regional healthcare provider Region Västerbotten will open a drop-in centre for vaccination against COVID-19 in the Universum Building on Campus Umeå particularly aimed at students. This applies to both dose one and dose two.

Starting this week, Region Västerbotten opens a temporary vaccination centre against COVID-19 with the purpose of reaching more students with the offer of getting vaccinated.

The vaccination centre will be located in the Universum Building on Campus Umeå and offers only drop in vaccination, no booked appointments. The vaccination centre administers both dose one and dose two regardless of where dose one was taken.

This week’s opening hours for drop-in vaccination are

  • Thursday 9 September at 9:00–11:00 and 12:00–14:30
  • Friday 10 September at 9:00–11:00 and 12:00–14:30

Region Västerbotten is planning to extend the drop-in vaccination centre in Universum if it is in demand and if many people come to get vaccinated: 

“We are planning on offering more available times next week too. When that is will be updated on,” says Ronny Lestander, vaccine coordinator at Region Västerbotten.
