It’s time to roll up our sleeves, UA.
Everyone in our campus community is strongly encouraged to be vaccinated and should register for the first available option. Vaccines are being administered by various businesses and healthcare providers in several locations in the Tuscaloosa area. A few options include University Medical Center, Student Health Center, DCH (our local hospital), Walmart, CVS, Crimson Care and the County Health Department. You can also go to Vaccine Finder to find clinics, pharmacies, and other locations in the United States that offer COVID-19 vaccines.
Most vaccines, including those currently offered through UMC and SHC, require two doses provided between 21 and 28 days apart. Both doses should be provided by the same facility. Those who are not be in Tuscaloosa this summer should consider getting vaccinated locally.
Get the facts on the COVID-19 vaccine, and make the decision that’s right for you and our herd.
