The Student Health and Wellness Center (SHWC) is offering free walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics  to  students, faculty and staff and system employees.  SHWC plans to continue delivering immunizations on campus as long as the Texas Department of State Health Services provides vaccine allocations.

Vaccine Appointment

Medical experts from some of our most prestigious academic institutions have said vaccines can help us reach herd immunity and end the pandemic, but more inoculations are still needed. The virus' latest mutation, particularly the Delta variant, appears to have an increased ability to spread from person to person, and COVID cases are once again on the rise. Almost all hospitalized patients are unvaccinated individuals. It is becoming more and more evident that people who are fully vaccinated have a high degree of protection from severe disease outcomes associated with COVID-19, including the Delta variant. To encourage vaccination, UNT launched a Vaccine Incentive Program students, faculty and staff this month.

Over 5,000 immunizations have been administered to students and staff through SHWC since February.

COVID-19 immunization appointments are limited to the first 20 people each day and are at a first-come, first-serve basis.
