COVID-19 booster vaccines for UT Health faculty, staff, students and residents

Following recommendations set forth by the Food and Drug Administration on Sept. 17, 2021, UT Health San Antonio is now providing COVID-19 vaccine boosters to our front-line health care workers, as well as all other faculty, staff, students and residents. Pfizer boosters will be administered and can be given to those who had an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna).

Booster scheduling is currently available to everyone with a UT Health San Antonio sign-on. As a courtesy, we ask that all those who do not interact directly with patients please wait a few days before scheduling, allowing our front-line providers – who are most at risk – to schedule their boosters first.

To schedule your COVID-19 booster, log in to our scheduling website. Locations include the Medical Arts and Research Center (MARC) or Wellness 360 located in the School of Nursing.
