COVID-19 Vaccination Information and Resources

Vaccine Opportunities for Students and Employees

UTA has established partnerships with Texas Health and Walmart to provide access, free of charge, to COVID-19 vaccines for all interested employees and students on campus and throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. UTA students and employees are strongly encouraged to participate in COVID-19 vaccinations if they are able.


All Mavericks are encouraged to get the vaccine if they’re able. The Maverick Motivator Program has been established to encourage you to Mav Up and Sleeve Up.

Vaccine Incentives

Get a vaccine

Walmart will host  on-campus vaccine clinics open to all employees and students. Both doses of the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine will be administered at these clinics. Vaccinations are free regardless of insurance status.

Dependents, friends and family of UTA employees and students are welcome as long as they are above the age of 12. No prior registration is required, though any minor coming without their parent or guardian will need to bring a signed consent form.

Each vaccine clinic will operate on a walk-in-only basis and be held in the exercise rooms of the Maverick Activities Center.

  • Thursday, September 23 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Thursday, September 30 – 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • Wednesday, October 6 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After receiving your first dose of the vaccine, your second dose appointment will automatically be scheduled, and you will receive a reminder email in advance of that appointment. Please be advised that if you receive your first dose at the October 6 clinic, your second dose appointment will be set for another location in the area.

If you are unable to attend one of the on-campus vaccine clinics, Walmart is designating 4 to 5 p.m. each day for UTA individuals to get vaccinated at the 915 E. Randol Mill Rd. location near the UTA campus. No appointment or prior registration is required.

Interested employees and students can receive their vaccine at any Texas Health Resources pop-up vaccine clinic. These clinics are open to the public, but UTA employees and students have priority access.

Texas Health is administering the Pfizer vaccine. The pop-up clinics are for your first dose ONLY. In most cases, the date of your second dose will be provided when you get your first dose.
