UHD, H-E-B Hosting Vaccination Clinics
Vaccinations on Campus Oct. 21, Nov. 18, Dec. 15
The University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) continues its efforts to help ensure the campus and surrounding communities reduce the spread of COVID-19.
As the University concludes its fall soft opening and returns more students, faculty and staff to campus, it’s even more essential for the entire UHD Community to practice caution and courtesy.
As a reminder, UHD is still a mask-friendly University, and it is encouraged to wear them on campus for the safety of yourself and fellow Gators. Likewise, social distancing is also recommended.
In partnership with H-E-B, the University is hosting a COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic for the vaccine and vaccine booster shots. Vaccine recipients who have completed their initial series of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine at least 6 months ago and meet the criteria below qualify:
- 65 years and older
- Residents who live in long-term care settings
- Age 18-64 who have underlying medical conditions
- Age 18-64 who work in high-risk settings
- Age 18-64 who live in high-risk settings

Participants are asked to bring an identification card that matches your appointment name and to wear a mask during your immunization. Be sure to bring your COVID-19 vaccine record for an additional dose or booster appointment. Also, if you received your first dose somewhere other than H-E-B, please be sure to indicate the manufacturer and date of your first dose when completing your registration. If you first dose was with H-E-B, you will be auto-scheduled for your second dose.
The campus will continue to host hand sanitizer stations and provide masks upon request. For your convenience, the Curative testing kiosk outside the Jesse H. Jones Student Life Center is still open, seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and free of charge.
