SEPTEMBER 15, 2022 — UTSA Recovery Operations is hosting on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the Main Campus from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 15 in the Student Union Denman Ballroom (SU 2.01.28) and at the Downtown Campus from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 22 in the Buena Vista Building (BVB 1.308).
UTSA students, faculty, staff, family members and members of the local community are welcome to attend the clinics. No appointment is necessary. Vaccine availability is on a first-come, first-served basis and while supplies last.
Updated bivalent Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines and boosters will be available at the clinics. The updated vaccines are formulated to provide better protection against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants. The CDC recommends updated COVID-19 boosters from Pfizer-BioNTech for people ages 12 and older and from Moderna for people ages 18 and older. The updated boosters must be administered at least two months after receiving the most recent COVID-19 vaccine or booster.
“Staying up to date on COVID-19 boosters is essential for protection against COVID-19 infection and serious illness,” said Beth Wichman, UTSA’s chief medical officer. “Boosters help restore immunity that has waned in the time since your last vaccine, and the latest boosters are designed to protect against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants, which are more transmissible and immune-evading.”
While COVID-19 vaccination is not required for UTSA students, faculty and staff, all Roadrunners are strongly urged to get their COVID-19 vaccine and stay up to date on boosters
Getting vaccinated is essential to protecting the health and safety of the Roadrunner community, ensuring campus infections remain low and preventing the reinstatement of limitations on in-person classes, campus events, activities, services and housing.
Recovery Operations will host on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics each month this fall. Roadrunners are also encouraged to take advantage of the numerous vaccine appointment opportunities available from state and local providers.
