UVU strongly encourages all members of our campus community to make an appointment for a COVID vaccine! It's not only a shot that creates immunity and protection for each other — it's a shot at confidently returning to the activities that have been on hold because of the dangers associated with the pandemic. FREE vaccines are available at UVU to all students, faculty, staff, and their immediate family members. For information about the availability of the vaccine off campus, contact the Utah County Health Department, or go to vaccinefinder.org to find a location near you.
