What brand of COVID vaccine will I receive?

The Vaccination Clinic is currently vaccinating patients with the Pfizer vaccine. This vaccine requires two doses to be fully vaccinated. More information about the Pfizer vaccine at cdc.gov.

How much will the COVID vaccine cost?

COVID vaccine doses administered by the USI Vaccination Clinic will be administered at no cost. Insurance information is not required.

What if I can't get my second shot at USI?

The CDC, in conjunction with Boston Children’s Hospital has launched a Vaccine Finder website database that allows users to search for vaccine availability near their current location. If your received a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, you should search for a location offering the Pfizer vaccine for your second dose.

Vaccine Finder 

Note: Vaccine availability is subject to state guidelines, availability and most locations require appointments.

What if my schedule doesn’t work with the available timeslots for vaccination?

Getting as many students, as well as faculty and staff, as possible vaccinated is of the highest priority. The University has asked that faculty work with students to accommodate vaccine appointments. Supervisors are also asked to be flexible with their employees to accommodate vaccine appointments during the work day. Supervisors are encouraged to allow employees to make up time during the same work week if possible. Hours that cannot be made up during the same work week should be reported as sick time or other time off.

Should I take time off when I get the vaccine?

There is no need to plan time off for the vaccine. Some people report mild flu-like symptoms after receiving the vaccine; many have reported minimal reactions after the first dose, but a slightly stronger reaction after the second. If you experience side-effects, work with your faculty or supervisor to arrange any needed time off. If you experience side effects beyond 48 hours after receiving the vaccine, you should complete a USI Self Report Form.

How long should I plan to spend getting the vaccine?

In addition to checking in, confirming your appointment information, and receiving the vaccine, all patients are asked to wait at the vaccination site at least 15 minutes after receiving the vaccine in the event of a rare allergic reaction. When making your appointment, you should plan for the entire process to take up to one hour.

What if I can’t make it to my appointment?

Anyone who receives their first dose at the USI Vaccination Clinic will receive a vaccination card that can be used at any other location administering the Pfizer vaccine to schedule a second dose. If you will miss an appointment, please call the University Health Center during regular business hours at 812-465-1250 or the Vaccine Hotline during Vaccination Clinic hours at 812-465-1650 so your spot can be assigned to someone else.
