As an approved pandemic provider for Tennessee, University Health Services is administering the COVID-19 vaccine. Details about signing up for appointments will be shared each week via University email.
As a reminder, the University does not require the COVID-19 vaccination for UTC faculty, staff or students at this time.
At this time, any current UTC employee or student is eligible if they meet the following requirements:
- Live and/or work in Hamilton County; live in another state or county, but currently attend UTC.
- Meet current age eligibility (16 and up for Pfizer; 18 and up for Moderna or Johnson and Johnson)
- Minors (16- and 17-year-olds) must have a parent/guardian with them to give consent at the time of vaccination and can only receive Pfizer at this time.
If you are unsure of your eligibility for vaccination, learn more about Tennessee vaccine eligibility guidelines at this link, and be sure to choose Hamilton county when prompted. Eligibility requirements are subject to change.
“No Waste” List
Can you get the vaccine at a UTC COVID-19 vaccination clinic if you do not meet eligibility requirements?
University Health Services will implement a “No Waste” sign-up list. Any UTC faculty, staff or students, regardless of phase eligibility may sign up for this list.
If doses remain at the end of a vaccine clinic, those who signed up for the “No Waste” list will be contacted by clinic staff. You must be able to come to the clinic as soon as you are called. University Health Services will share more information each week through University email.
Household Contact or Family Member Eligibility
At this time, only UTC faculty, staff and students are eligible to attend a UTC vaccination clinic.
The only documentation needed will be UTC ID which must be shown at vaccine clinic check-in. No documentation of eligibility criteria is required.
Vaccine Quantities and Manufacturer
University Health Services is allowed to request vaccine once a week in quantities the clinic estimates it can give within seven to 10 days. Ultimately, the state and local health departments determine allocation of number of doses supplied and from which manufacturer. As more vaccines become available, appointments will be added to the schedule and the campus will be notified. The appointment system will specify which vaccine is available for each appointment.
University Health Services is happy to be able to offer this service to the campus community. For more information on the various COVID-19 vaccines, visit COVID Vaccines.
