Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Griffith University is taking the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) seriously.

Stay healthy so you can study and work well

Access preventative and practical help to look after yourself while you study and work. We provide a range of medical and ancillary services for students and staff of the University.

Currently we are offering:

  • Telehealth consultations for medical consultations not requiring a physical examination, as well as all mental health nurse, psychologist and psychiatrist appointments
  • Flu vaccinations for students and staff
  • Student immunisations for clinical placement

If you would like to make an appointment, you can choose to book online via Appointuit or call your preferred location directly using the details at the bottom of this page.

Are you a new student? Do you need vaccines and serology for your degree?

Book an appointment online with the nurse to discuss mandatory vaccine and serology requirements for your degree. All initial course immunisations must be seen by the nurse in the first instance, who will then organise an appointment with the doctor.

Flu clinics

Get your influenza vaccinations for clinical placement from Health and Medical Services. Vaccinations are available for $15 at Gold Coast and Nathan.

Drug and alcohol support

Dealing with alcohol and drug concerns on your own can be difficult. The Australian Government provides assistive services and treatment options via ADIS, including online self assessment tools and 24/7 phone support.

Sun Safety

It's important to slip, slop, slap all year round in Queensland, but now that summer is upon us, the need for caution is even higher. Check out all the ways you can be sun smart if you're going to the beach or staying outdoors for long stretches of time.

Mental Health Nurse

Our Mental Health Nurses can assist with stress management and help you cope with the pressures of life and uni.

Beat smoking

Stuck on quitting? We can help. Learn about the short term and long term benefits quitting smoking has on your body, and receive personal guidance through Griffith's own Smoking Cessation program.

Sexual health

Sexually transmissible infections (STIs) are common and increasing in Australia, including Queensland. Keep yourself safe, healthy and sexy with regular testing, protection and correct sexual health information.

Online Health and Wellness Centre

Griffith's new Online Health and Wellness Centre is a portal designed to increase student awareness and understanding of mental health concerns, and learn tips for promoting better health and wellbeing such as living a healthy lifestyle, engaging in meaningful social activity, feeling safe, stable and secure, and looking after your mental wellness.
