COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Student Health and Wellness Center has worked diligently for months to be an approved administrator of COVID-19 vaccines. The State of Texas Department of Health and Human Services allocates vaccines to approved sites on a weekly basis. The Student Health and Wellness Center received its first allotment of the vaccine on Tuesday, March 23, and started vaccinating eligible UNT students, faculty, and staff on Wednesday, March 24.

To help with national vaccinations efforts, UNT has joined the White House and U. S. Department of Education COVID-19 College Vaccine Challenge. In July, UNT launched a vaccine incentive program for students, faculty, and staff. That program ended in early September.

Walk-In COVID-19 Vaccination Appointments

The Student Health and Wellness Center offers walk-in COVID-19 vaccine appointments on a limited basis. Starting August 16, 2021, walk-in COVID-19 vaccination appointments will be available during the following hours by stopping by the Student Health and Wellness Center Clinic on the second floor of Chestnut Hall. There is no out-of-pocket cost for COVID vaccinations, but we will file to your health insurance for reimbursement.

  • Monday through Thursday: 8:30 am to 11 am and 1 pm to 4 pm
  • Friday: 9:30 am to 11 am and 1 pm to 3 pm

Walk-in COVID-19 vaccination appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. UNT students and employees are eligible for these walk-in vaccination appointments. UNT System employees are also eligible for walk-in vaccination appointments.

We currently have the Moderna vaccine available, but that could change based on our next allocation of vaccines. Patients who received their first dose of the COVID vaccine elsewhere can receive their second dose from the Health Center but will need to provide proof of their first vaccination, including the date of initial vaccination and the manufacturer of the vaccine they received.

Walk-in appointments are available while vaccine supplies are available. You can call (940) 565-2793 to determine if doses are still available before coming over.

Things To Bring To Your Vaccination Appointment

1.    Government-issued photo ID
2.    Insurance Card (if you have medical insurance)
3.    Smartphone or another internet-capable mobile device
4.    We respectfully ask that patients wear a mask to ensure the well-being of patients and employees.
