Get Vacci-Knighted

Doctors and scientists – including UCF alumnus Darin Edwards, director of immunology at Moderna – spent nearly a year developing three vaccines that are proven to be effective in preventing hospitalization and death from COVID-19. On Aug. 23, the FDA granted full approval to Pfizer’s vaccine, which is available at the UCF Health Center.

Vaccines are safe, effective and readily available at no cost and by appointment or walk-up at the Student Health Center or a location in your community or close to home. There is a vaccine waiting to be administered to you, and we strongly encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as possible if you have not done so already.

Staying Vigilant About COVID-19

If you or someone you know tests positive for COVID-19:

  • Stay home and don’t come to campus
  • Avoid contact with others
  • Call the UCF COVID Line at 407-823-2509
  • Continue home isolation until you’ve consulted with your healthcare provider about returning to campus

Get Tested

Rapid testing is available to UCF students at the Student Health Center by appointment only. Rapid testing is available to students, faculty and staff without an appointment and at no cost at Garage A through Aventus Biolabs. A valid UCF ID is required for testing at both campus locations.

Whether you are vaccinated or not, testing is recommended if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or within three to five days of when you are exposed to the virus.
