We have a very limited number of COVID-19 vaccines still available. We are now offering vaccinations to individuals in employees’ households who meet the vaccine eligibility requirements as outlined in the State of Florida’s executive order, which at this time prioritizes healthcare workers and those 65 or older. Those eligible can be a spouse, partner, a parent or parent-in-law, sibling or roommate but must be 65 or older or a healthcare worker who has patient contact.
We strongly encourage all eligible to receive the vaccine by scheduling an appointment with Student Health Services.
Additionally, if all appointments are filled, there is an opportunity to place an individual who meets the state’s eligibility guidelines on our waitlist. When we receive our next round of vaccines, we will invite those who have signed up for our waitlist to schedule an appointment to receive their vaccine.
The no-cost vaccine will be administered during in-person appointments at Student Health Services on the main UCF campus.
Note that this initial round of vaccine administration is limited, and appointments are first-come, first-served. If you have already scheduled a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at another site, please keep that appointment so we may reach as many Knights as possible.
After scheduling your appointment or signing up for our waitlist, please review the Pfizer fact sheet and V-safe information:

We are sharing more information about vaccine distribution on UCF’s coronavirus website, and those with questions also can email [email protected].
