UH Vaccine Efforts

The Student Health Center worked with partner organizations to provide COVID-19 vaccines to approximately 4,000 UH faculty, staff and students who met eligibility requirements and chose to receive the vaccine. These vaccines were offered in multiple clinics during March and April, and several second-dose clinics are scheduled. No additional first-dose vaccine clinics will be offered at UH during the Spring 2021 semester.

In addition to the efforts of the UH Student Health Center, Memorial Hermann provided an additional 3,000 vaccine doses to UH and the public at an on-campus clinic on April 12.

With the vaccine now widely available, we encourage member of the UH campus community to refer to the vaccine resource finder as well as the list of vaccine hubs for the latest on available vaccines in the Houston area.
