COVID-19 Vaccination Information and Resources

Vaccine Opportunities for Students and Employees

UTA is providing 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.

Walmart will host on-campus vaccine clinics open to all employees and students. First and second doses of the Moderna and FDA-approved Pfizer vaccines are available for all individuals 12 years and older, and booster doses are available for eligible individuals. 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. Students will receive a $50 gift card to the UTA Bookstore for each of the initial Pfizer doses received at our on-campus clinics. Gift cards will not be given to students for booster doses.

  • Wednesday, January 5 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, January 12 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, January 19 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, February 2 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.

Students can receive both doses of the Moderna vaccine free of charge through Health Services every Monday. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 817-272-2771. Students will receive a $50 gift card to the UTA Bookstore per COVID-19 vaccine administered by Health Services. If you make an appointment to receive your first dose, Health Services staff will assist you with scheduling an appointment for your second dose.

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.
