UTA has established a partnership with OptumServe to provide all interested employees and students access to COVID‑19 vaccines at a convenient on-campus location and free of charge.

This newest opportunity and the previously announced Texas Health vaccine opportunity are for the first dose of the COVID‑19 vaccine only. Participants will be given instructions on scheduling their second dose at their first-dose appointment.

UTA students and employees are strongly encouraged to participate in COVID‑19 vaccinations if they are able. Each opportunity and what it offers is outlined below. Please visit the UTA COVID‑19 Vaccination Information and Resources page to access registration links and instructions for both vaccine opportunities.


Effective May 5, OptumServe, powered by a partnership between Tarrant County and the University of North Texas Health Science Center, will be operating a COVID‑19 vaccination site from UTA’s Physical Education Building at 801 Greek Row Dr. Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., until the end of June.

This site is open to the public and operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. During its first weeks of operations, OptumServe will be administering the Pfizer vaccine.

This site is available for appointments and walk-ins. The hour of 4-5 p.m. each day will be dedicated to walk-ins, though you can also show up at any time. If you arrive for a walk-in visit and they are fully booked, you will be scheduled for the next day.

Parking for all visitors is available in Lot 30 adjacent to the Physical Education Building.

Texas Health

As previously announced, Texas Health is offering priority access for UTA employees and students at six Texas Health Community Clinics around the DFW Metroplex. Texas Health is administering the Pfizer vaccine. With UTA’s priority access, you will be able to schedule your appointment for as soon as 48 hours from the time you register.

Priority access with Texas Health is offered only to UTA employees and students and cannot be forwarded or transferred.
