Appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at UCF this week are now available to all UCF students.
UCF will provide the Pfizer vaccine to about 6,000 Knights at a vaccination clinic that will operate April 7-9 in the Pegasus Ballroom of the Student Union. The no-cost vaccine will be distributed first come, first served and by appointment only. We are making it easy for students living in the Orlando area to receive their vaccine at UCF, but appointments are now open to all students, and they can be made by clicking the link below:
Following your first dose, we will provide instructions for scheduling your second dose in the recommended three weeks. With the end of the semester nearing, it is critical that only students who will be able to return to campus in three weeks to receive their second dose sign up for an appointment at UCF.
Students can sign up for an appointment through the Student Experience in the UCF Mobile app or online for those who do not have access to the app. You will be able to select the date and time for your appointment, which also will include a mandatory 15-minute waiting period after your vaccination.
If you have already scheduled an appointment with another provider, please keep that appointment so we may reach as many people as we can at the UCF site.
We strongly encourage all students to get fully vaccinated. Achieving wide community vaccination is such a critical element to our ability to end this pandemic and all be together again.
If you are unable to get an appointment at the UCF clinic, there are still other opportunities to get vaccinated. Orange County is sharing more details about community providers on its Vaccine Information page.
More information about what to expect at your appointment at UCF, shareable social media graphics, and answers to FAQs are being shared on UCF’s vaccine page. Those with additional questions can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Armor Up, Knights!
