UHS Now Offering Moderna Bivalent Booster COVID-19 Vaccines
University Health Services (UHS) announced Monday that it is now offering Moderna’s bivalent booster COVID-19 vaccine.
Students can book appointments from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays in the Student Health Center. You can schedule your appointment through myUHS.
This booster will protect against both the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the newest omicron variant, according to the Food and Drug Administration.
“Getting a booster vaccine adds protection against COVID-19, especially protecting against more severe illness,” UHS Medical Director Rebecca Simcik said. “COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon, but we can all live with it more safely if we stay up to date on vaccines, including boosters.”
The Moderna bivalent booster vaccine is available to anyone over the age of 18 who received their latest COVID-19 shot at least two months ago. If you recently had COVID-19, it is suggested that you wait at least three months before receiving this booster.
Before scheduling an appointment, students should ensure that their health insurance card is uploaded to myUHS. Students should also bring their student ID with them to their appointment.
Appointments to receive the first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are also available between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Wednesdays in the Student Health Center.
