Welcome to our COVID-19 Vaccination Hub
The FDA approved the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for ages 12-15. We are anxiously awaiting the state's approval on administering the vaccine. We are hoping it will be approved by the end of the week. We will provide more updates on this page.

University Health is proud to offer no-cost COVID-19 vaccinations at our hub locations at Wonderland of the Americas and St. Philip’s College.
These hub vaccination centers enable our teams to accommodate more than 7,000 people a day to receive either their first or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
In addition to online appointments, University Health is working closely with schools, government agencies, nonprofits and other community organizations to prioritize eligible front-line workers who are at greater risk of contracting the virus as they provide vital services for our community. We are also working hard to reach out to vulnerable populations who are at greater risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19.

Who Is Currently Eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine?
DSHS directs providers to continue to prioritize older adults.
As of March 29, 2021, all adults are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Texas. The Texas Department of State Health Services reports that providers in multiple parts of the state have made great strides in vaccinating people in the current priority groups and that vaccine supplies are expected to increase. The state’s Expert Vaccine Allocation Panel recommended opening vaccination to everyone who falls under the current Food and Drug Administration emergency use authorizations to protect as many Texans as possible.
Teens who are 16 and 17 years old are still considered minors and must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Safety and Efficacy
Vaccines are cleared for Emergency Use Authorization after rigorous review by FDA based on scientific evidence about safety and effectiveness gathered through large clinical trials.
The COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S. do not use the live virus that causes COVID-19.
Having symptoms like fever after getting a vaccine is normal and a sign a person’s immune system is learning to fight the virus
Please review the Moderna Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and the Pfizer Emergency Use Authorization (EAU) for detailed information about the vaccines.
