About Vaccination on Campus

From the campus:

It is vital that we strive for full vaccination throughout our campus community to continue to ensure the safety and health of everyone here at our University. Faculty, staff and students may visit the UAH Health Portal to schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 vaccination. To schedule an appointment for a household member age 12+, contact the UAH COVID Scheduling hotline at 256.824.2400.
