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, people who meet the following requirements may receive their vaccine at one of UTC’s COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics:
- You are a current UTC faculty, staff or student who is 18 years of age or older due to the vaccine we have available at our site (Moderna or Johnson & Johnson)
- You are a household contact of a UTC faculty, staff or student AND you live, work or attend school in Hamilton County
- All participants must be 18 years of age or older due to the vaccines we have available at our site (Moderna and Johnson & Johnson)
“No Waste” List
Any UTC faculty, staff or student may sign up for this list if an appointment is not available for a day/time that is convenient for them.
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.
The only documentation needed will be UTC ID or driver’s license which must be shown at vaccine clinic check-in.
You will need your COVID-19 vaccination card for your second dose appointment. If you have misplaced your COVID-19 vaccination card, please email email@example.com with the details of your circumstances.
Vaccine Quantities and Manufacturer
University Health Services can 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.
UTC COVID Vaccination Clinic offers the following vaccines, subject to availability:
- Two-dose Moderna vaccine
- Single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine: According to the FDA and CDC, women younger than 50 years old should be aware of the rare risk of blood clots with low platelets after receiving this vaccine. Other COVID-19 vaccines are available where this risk has not been seen. If you have questions about this risk, please speak with a health care provider before receiving the vaccine.
University Health Services is happy to be able to offer this service to the campus community.
