Members of the UA community will have three opportunities to do their part to Protect Our Herd when University Medical Center offers Saturday COVID-19 vaccine clinics starting Aug. 7.
UA students, faculty and staff can receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine Aug. 7, 14 and 21, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at UMC.
“Given the latest developments in the fight against COVID-19 and the return of students, faculty and staff, we felt it was important to provide the campus community with additional opportunities to get vaccinated,” said Dr. Richard Friend, dean of UA’s College of Community Health Sciences, which operates UMC. “The best way to keep COVID-19 and variants like Delta from affecting the campus experience is through widespread vaccination.”
Students who receive their first dose of the two-dose vaccine will receive $20 in Bama Cash as a thank you for doing their part.
Appointments are required. To schedule an appointment, call 205-348-1471, and leave your name, date of birth and a way for UMC to contact you.
