Questions about booster shots?

At this time, the CDC has approved COVID-19 vaccine booster doses for certain populations.

For those who are eligible, booster vaccines are available at our on-campus clinics. Please bring your COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card to your appointment.

  Booster Eligibility Information


What to Expect at Our Clinic

Review the COVID-19 Vaccine Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) Fact Sheet for your vaccine and explore the COVID-19 vaccine information available on the CDC's website.

You will be asked to complete consent paperwork prior to receiving your vaccine. These forms will be provided to you when you arrive.

Make sure you have the following on hand at check-in:

  • Photo ID
    • Note: You do not need to prove U.S. citizenship to get a vaccine. UTSA and our on-campus vaccine providers will never share your information with any immigration or law enforcement agencies.
  • Insurance card
    • Only needed if you are insured. There is no cost to patients for the COVID-19 vaccine regardless of health insurance status.
  • Vaccination card
    • If you are coming to the clinic for your second dose.

A nurse will administer a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is administered via an intramuscular injection in the upper arm (deltoid muscle). After receiving your vaccine, you will be asked to remain on site for 15-30 minutes per the CDC’s recommended post-vaccination observation period.

Please note: You cannot receive the vaccine if you,

  • Are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms
  • Currently meet the quarantine/isolation criteria for COVID-19

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the previous 90-day period, consult your physician for recommendations regarding obtaining the vaccine at this time.
