How to get the vaccine


Information about scheduling

Appointments are required. Those who are eligible can schedule an appointment through the MSDH COVID-19 vaccine appointment system by visiting covidvaccine.umc.edu or by calling 877.978.6453. Appointments cannot be made with county or university offices.

Drive-Through Vaccination Process

  1. Make an appointment online or over the phone. When you register online, you will fill out a survey that includes your contact information.
  2. Follow directional signage. When you reach the University, you will be given instructions on where to park.
  3. Keep your mask on and roll up your sleeve to receive your vaccination from a health care professional.
  4. Wait 15 minutes so that health care staff can monitor for any adverse reactions to the vaccine. During the time that you spend on campus, the healthcare staff and community volunteers will make sure that you’re safe and register you for your second-dose appointment, as well as get you your vaccine card.
  5. Take home post-vaccination information, including details about your second dose appointment. It is important that the same product be used for both doses. The University will be providing the same vaccine for both of your appointments.



Bring Your Mask

Everyone coming to the vaccination site is asked to wear a mask the entire time they are at the site. The health care professionals administering vaccinations will be wearing personal protective equipment and taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of those visiting campus.
