COVID-19 Vaccination Registration

Vice President for Student Affairs | April 5, 2021


Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Texas State University is pleased to offer COVID-19 vaccinations to faculty, staff and students who are 16 years of age and older in accordance with Texas Department of State Health Services guidelines. If you are receiving this email, you are eligible to submit a vaccination request form.

If you have already received a COVID-19 vaccine OR if you have already received an appointment confirmation email for another vaccination event, please disregard this email.

VACCINATION INFORMATION

Pfizer vaccinations will be provided on Friday, April 9th at the LBJ Grand Ballroom.

Be prepared to stay 15-30 minutes after your vaccination for observation.

Vaccination is by reservation only. Vaccine supply is limited and not everyone requesting vaccination will get a reservation. Walk-ins will not be allowed. If you would like to request a vaccination on April 2nd, please complete the following form and indicate your preference for a morning or afternoon reservation time:

Vaccine Request Form

After submitting the vaccination request, and if vaccine is available, you will receive an email from the Student Health Center within 24 hours with your specific reservation time and additional instructions.  Vaccine reservations cannot be rescheduled but may be cancelled by calling the Student Health Center at 512-245-2161.  Please do not arrive before your reservation time as that will create longer lines and increase the wait for everyone.

2nd Dose Appointment:  Your 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine will be scheduled for May 7, 2021.  Please be sure that you will be available for the 2nd dose on this date.  The CDC permits 2nd doses up to six weeks after the first dose.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: READ BEFORE SCHEDULING VACCINATION

Parental Consent Required: If you are under 18 on the date of the vaccination, you must have signed parental consent. Call 512-245-2161, option 5 for assistance.

If you have the following history, you CANNOT receive this vaccine:

  1. History of an allergic reaction to a prior dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, or any component of a COVID-19 vaccine.
    Allergic reaction to any component of a COVID-19 vaccine is a contraindication to this vaccine. Components of COVID-19 vaccines include PEG (polyethylene glycol) and polysorbate.
    A complete list of ingredients is available at the following link:
    https://www.healthcenter.txstate.edu/covid-19/vaccine-components.html

If you have the following history, you should POSTPONE your vaccination:

  1. History of a positive COVID-19 test during the past 60 days.
    Vaccination should be postponed until you have recovered from COVID-19 illness and your isolation period is over.  We recommend that you consider postponing your vaccination until at least 60 days after your infection because current evidence suggests that reinfection is uncommon during this time.  If you received monoclonal antibody or convalescent plasma as treatment for COVID-19 illness, we recommend that you wait a minimum of 90 days before being vaccinated to avoid interference with the vaccine-induced immune response.
  2. Received any other vaccine or immunization in the past 14 days.
    We recommend a minimum interval of at least 14 days before or after administration of other vaccines.

If you have the following history, you should CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN prior to vaccination:

  1. Bleeding disorder or blood thinner.
    Please consult your physician to determine if COVID-19 vaccine can be administered safely.
    After vaccination, be prepared to hold pressure on the vaccination site for 2 minutes.
  2. Current pregnancy or breastfeeding.
    If you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your physician regarding the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

If you have had a prior dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you must return to the site where you received your first dose for a second dose, if indicated. We are NOT currently scheduling second doses for persons who started their vaccination series elsewhere.
