UHS Booster Clinics

UHS is holding COVID vaccine Clinics at the Tang Center, appointments bookable on eTang. All clinics are Pfizer boosters.

  • January 26
  • January 27
  • January 28
  • February 1 (appointments open on 1/28)
  • February 2 (appointments open on 1/28)
  • February 3 (appointments open on 1/28)

You are booster eligible if it has been 5 months since the final dose of either Moderna or Pfizer, or at least two months after a J&J vaccination. Boosters are required and those who are booster eligible but not yet boosted would need to start weekly surveillance testing. So get your booster or upload records to eTang if you got it already outside of UHS.
