Update on COVID-19 booster shots
COVID-19 cases on campus continue to remain low – thank you for protecting yourself and the community by being vaccinated, masking up, and staying home and getting tested if you have symptoms. Campus vaccination rates continue to rise, with 94 percent of students and 95 percent of employees fully vaccinated. Individuals who are not yet fully vaccinated continue to be required to test weekly.
Information about COVID-19 boosters is changing rapidly and can be confusing. The chart below summarizes what we currently know about COVID booster eligibility.
Did you receive Moderna or Johnson & Johnson?
The Food and Drug Administration has authorized booster shots for people ages 18 and over who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and for some at-risk populations who received the Moderna vaccine. UHS is awaiting additional guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and will message campus when these booster shots are available. Continue to watch your email and this page for more information.
Did you receive Pfizer?
No-cost appointments continue to be available on campus for Pfizer recipients seeking a booster shot. Make an appointment.
