What You Need to Know

  • UO vaccination clinics for students and employees begin this Wednesday at Autzen Stadium for those who have signed up. Here are some reminders:
    • Appointments are required. Sorry, no drop-ins, but there is a wait list (see below).
    • You can drive, walk, or bike through the clinic.
    • Duck Rides shuttles are also available to students, faculty, and staff; request your ride on a first-come, first-serve basis at the EMU, at the corner of 13th and University, on the day of your appointment.
    • Vaccinations are free, and insurance is not required, but bring your health insurance info so your provider can be billed.
    • Complete the required consent form (in English or Spanish) and bring it with you.
    • The clinics will use the Pfizer vaccine, which requires two doses, the second no earlier than 21 days after the first.
    • Dress appropriately so that the injection can be given easily in your shoulder/upper arm with ease and comfort.
    • If you need to cancel, please use this form. You may then add your name to the wait list. You may also seek an appointment with another provider.

  • UO Clinics are full. But you can add your name to the wait list to be informed if additional appointments open up and/or to be notified if there will be end-of-day doses available. All individuals 16 and up are now available for vaccines, and schedule an appointment with your county public health agency, pharmacy, or health care provider, for example, Lane County Public Health.
Tip of the Week: New COVID-19 variants

Featured FAQ

Are masks required on campus?
Yes, even though Lane County is currently in Low Risk status, and many people are getting vaccinated, masks are required indoors and outdoors on campus except when alone in an enclosed space. A face covering is required to cover the nose and mouth, and rest snugly against the face.
