COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution
January 13, 2021
All current UT students, faculty and staff will be able to receive a vaccine once there is sufficient supply to meet the demand. Vaccines are highly encouraged for the campus community. As Longhorns, we are bound together by the core values that guide us in our efforts to transform lives for the benefit of society. Vaccination is an opportunity for each of us to consider our individual responsibility in helping to protect our families, friends, neighbors and coworkers from the dangers of this disease.It will take all of us to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. When enough people get vaccinated, the spread from person-to-person becomes less frequent and thereby increases protection of the whole community.
Vaccine distribution for the university community is a collaborative effort between University Health Services, UT Health Austin/Dell Medical School, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Nursing and the Office of Campus Safety. Vaccinating our campus community will likely be a months-long process as federal, state, and local officials coordinate vaccine availability, distribution, and guidance. Thank you for your flexibility as we balance the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine with our existing clinic operations.
