MTU Fall 2021 COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics

In partnership with the Upper Great Lakes Family Health Center (UGL), Michigan Tech is offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinics for students and employees on August 24, September 1, and September 2. The clinics will take place in the Rozsa Center Lobby from 3 to 5 p.m. No appointment is required. Please note that the August clinic occurs during Orientation Week.

Both the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available at all three clinics — participants will be able to choose which to receive. UGL staff will administer the vaccine. Employees and students who have already received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine can receive their second dose at the clinic. Third-dose boosters will not be available at any of the MTU vaccine clinics.

UGL staff may ask for proof of insurance and identification when you arrive at an MTU vaccine clinic. If you do not have insurance, you will still receive the vaccine free of charge. Everyone receiving the vaccine will be asked to wait 15 minutes in the waiting area for observation. An EMT or nurse is typically on hand to monitor the waiting area.

Please send questions about the MTU vaccine clinics to mtuflex@mtu.edu. For information about COVID-19 vaccine availability in the western Upper Peninsula, including where to get the Pfizer vaccine, check out the Copper Country Strong website. Please reach out to any local health care provider if you are interested in a third-dose booster — no pre-existing relationship is required.
