UHD, H-E-B to Host Free Vaccine Event in August
Once again, UHD students, faculty, staff and families can receive free vaccinations on campus courtesy of community partner H-E-B in August.
The first dose of the Pfizer vaccine will be administered between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on August 26 in UHD’s Welcome Center. The second shot will be available on September 17. Registration is required to receive the vaccines.
On the day of the vaccinations, those with insurance benefits will need to bring a copy of their insurance card. Those without insurance will still be able to be vaccinated, but will need to provide their Social Security number on their consent forms per government guidelines.
