Don’t Miss Your Shot

COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are safe, free and require no medical insurance. Vaccines are available on campus through the following: University Health Service, Occupational Health Services, Michigan Medicine and popup clinics when available. You can also use Vaccines.gov to find a location offering the COVID-19 vaccine near you, then call or visit their website to make an appointment. Please see this FAQ on when to get your booster shot based on the timing and type of your primary vaccine series.

As a reminder, U-M employees are eligible to use up to two hours of paid release time per vaccine dose. Additional information is available through U-M Human Resources.

Tips before your appointment

Before you schedule your vaccination, you:

  • Must be past the appropriate timeframe to receive a booster shot (five months after completing either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccines or two months after the single-dose J&J vaccine).
  • Should not have an active COVID-19 infection in the past 10 days.
  • Must bring your insurance card, if you have one, to your appointment.
