Vaccines for COVID-19

COVID Vaccines

Vaccinations at UHS (for students only)

Anticipated Vaccination Schedule for the Fall

CDC recommends updated 2023-2024 COVID-19 vaccines for everyone 6 months and older.  Receiving an updated COVID-19 vaccine is safe and can restore protection against infections and severe disease.  The 2023–2024 formulation has been updated to a monovalent vaccine based on the Omicron XBB.1.5 sublineage of SARS-CoV-2.

UHS plans to offer the Moderna Covid (Spikevax) vaccine once it becomes available and we plan to hold joint influenza (flu)/Covid vaccine fairs later this fall. These vaccines will also be widely available in the pharmacies and other community settings.  

We are currently waiting for the Covid-19 vaccine shipment to our facility and there may be delay in transit during the transition period. We will provide more updates once it becomes available.
