Get vaccinated on campus! No appointment needed.

Take a shot for some big prizes

Students will receive a $50 gift card to the UTA Bookstore for each COVID‑19 vaccine received at UTA's on-campus clinics. This means you can receive $100 total if you get both doses.

An upcoming on-campus clinic offering free immunizations with the FDA-approved Pfizer vaccine is available. The walk-in-only clinic is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6.

The deadline for the Maverick Motivator Program has been extended to Wednesday, Oct. 6, to allow more Mavericks the chance to get both doses of the COVID‑19 vaccine and enter for large prizes. Regardless of where you received your vaccine, upload proof of full vaccination to the COVID‑19 Self Report portal in MyMav for a chance to receive tuition scholarships, free parking and meal plans, MacBook Pros, and more.

If you received your first vaccine dose at the Sept. 15 clinic, you will be eligible to receive your second dose at the Oct. 6 clinic.
