May vaccine reminder for 2nd and 3rd shift employees

Dear employees,

Thank you to those who have made the choice to get vaccinated. We know vaccination is the best way to protect ourselves and our community from the spread of COVID-19, to reduce the need to test and take other steps to limit the disease, and to begin to enjoy campus as it was before the pandemic.

If you have not yet been vaccinated, University Health Services would like to make it as easy as possible for you to do so. Right now, on campus you can get any of the three vaccine types available: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson. You also do not need an appointment. You can go the Nicholas Recreation Center Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. There is parking at Lot 46. You may request interpretive services at the vaccine clinic.

Please talk to your supervisor about work flexibility in order to get your vaccine on campus during non-shift hours.

If you have already been vaccinated off campus, please share your vaccine records with UHS by following these instructions: go.wisc.edu/uploadvaccine

UHS is also able to offer vaccines to your family members, including those who are 16 or 17, and beginning Monday, May 17, to those who are age 12 and older. However, since only Pfizer is available to individuals between ages 12 and 17, it is best to make an appointment if possible. Visit covidresponse.wisc.edu/covid-19-vaccine-information/#community-vaccination. An adult must be present with anyone under age 18, unless they are a UW–Madison student or employee. All vaccines are free and you do not need to show identification.

If you have questions about vaccines or about uploading your vaccine records, you may call the UHS nurse line (English) at 608-265-5600 or, if you need language assistance, you may call Cultural Linguistic Services at:
