Vaccine & Boosters

Before you pick a time: 

  • Please ensure we have accurate email and cell phone contact information, so that we may reach you in a timely manner if necessary.
  • If you are currently participating in or have participated in a COVID vaccine study, please contact your study coordinator before scheduling.
  • Those 5+ who are moderately or severely immunocompromised should get an additional primary shot of Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Immunosuppressed patients 12+ qualify for a total of 4 doses (3 primary doses, followed by 1 booster dose 3 months later). Contact your primary care provider with questions or to schedule a vaccine appointment.

Approval has now been granted for the administration of "mix and match" vaccines--a booster different from the vaccine originally administered. If you are interested in pursuing this option, please call (832) 632-6731 or email C19Vacsch@utmb.edu for assistance.
