Getting a COVID-19 vaccination is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others during the pandemic. UTEP has teamed up with University Medical Center to offer free, convenient on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinics this fall for students and employees.
Students who participate in the clinics will receive incentives and giveaways!
Here's what you need to know:
- The fourth and last clinics of the fall 2021 semester will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, Oct. 25-27, 2021, at the El Paso Natural Gas Conference Center.
- No appointment or pre-registration is necessary for students. Faculty and staff must register at https://campusedge.utep.edu/umc-on-campus-vaccination-clinic.
- Students who participate in the vaccine clinics at UTEP or get a COVID-19 vaccine elsewhere between Aug. 23 and Oct. 31, 2021, will receive several incentives, including $25 in Miner Bucks after each shot (up to $50 total), a “Miners Take Care of Miners” T-shirt, and other free giveaways. Faculty and staff do not qualify to receive the $25 incentive.
- If you live in a campus residence hall and can show proof of full vaccination (both shots) by Oct. 31, UTEP will pay $550 of your rent for the semester.
