More than 200 people rolled up their sleeves and received their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at UNO’s first on-campus vaccination clinic, which was held Friday, April 30.
The clinic was hosted by UNO’s Office of Health Security in partnership with the Douglas County Health Department and was open to students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the community.
Next Vaccination Clinic: May 21
UNO will host its second vaccination clinic on Friday, May 21, 2021 from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom.
- No registration is required.
Those who received their first dose at the April 30 vaccination clinic are strongly encouraged to return for their second dose at this time; however, the clinic is open to any who needs either their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
Those receiving their first dose at the May 21 clinic will need to receive their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine three weeks later at any COVID-19 vaccination location in the community.
Walk-in appointments will be available to individuals age 16 and older. Individuals under the age of 19 will need parental consent and a guardian present in order to get the vaccine.
Participants will be asked to stop at the Wellness Welcome Stations at the entrances to the Milo Bail Student Center to complete a brief screening using the 1-Check UNO app (available for Android, iOS, and the web) for UNO students, faculty and staff or the CheckCOVID app (available for Android and iOS phones) for alumni and community members.
- Fridays offer permit-free parking in all garage locations (non-reserved/general use garage spaces).
