URL: https://unthsc.edu/schedule

HSC Health will be hosting a vaccine clinic this Friday, December 3, with the COVID-19 1st, 2nd, 3rd dose or booster and flu vaccination for eligible individuals.

The event is scheduled from 10am – 12pm in Priority Care on the third floor of the Health Pavilion on campus. Employees, students and faculty are able to self-schedule their appointment at unthsc.edu/schedule.

When scheduling, choose HSC Campus, then choose either HSC Employee/Students Only COVID-19 Booster or HSC Employee/Students Only COVID-19 3rd Dose. The flu will be an option for either booster or 3rd dose.

Please note that the COVID-19 booster is now available to all vaccinated students, faculty and staff aged 18 and older if it has been over 6 months since they received the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 2 months since they received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The COVID-19 3rd dose is available for immunocompromised individuals, per CDC guidelines.

If you are scheduling your COVID-19 2nd or 3rd dose or booster, you must bring your COVID-19 vaccination card to your appointment. Even if you received a COVID-19 vaccine at HSC Health, your vaccine card is critical to determining your eligibility for a booster. If you do not bring your card, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

Your help needed – it’s not too late – volunteer today for Dec. 11-12 HSC-RAM free community health clinic


Volunteers are still needed for HSC-RAM free community clinic on Dec. 11 & 12

HSC and Remote Area Medical — RAM® — a major nonprofit provider of pop-up clinics delivering free, quality, dental, vision and medical care to underserved and uninsured individuals — are bringing a free clinic to Fort Worth.

Students, practicing professionals and general volunteers needed – sign up to be a volunteer today!

When: December 11 & 12, 2021

Where: 13901 Aviator Way, Fort Worth, TX 76177

Volunteer information:

Students on a health care professional track are the key to RAM’s sustainable future, and we trust you will be the ones staffing our clinics ten years from now.

We know how important it is for students to get hands-on experience, while also gaining life-changing exposure to the underserved.

However, RAM clinics operate with only one goal in mind: to bring free, high-quality healthcare to those in need.

Many of our patients haven’t seen a doctor in decades, so we try to make the experience as professional and as comfortable as possible.

This is not a teaching operation, and our first duty is to our patients.

MD, DO, PA and NP Students: In order to work in the Medical Department, you must have faculty supervision.

A licensed faculty member may bring up to five students, all of whom must practice within their scope of service.

Medical services will include, but not limited to annual physicals, women’s health exams and assessment/diagnosis/treatment of basic conditions.

Other information:

A typical clinic day kicks off between 5:10am and 5:40am, and ends anywhere from 4-6pm.

The final day of the clinic will wrap up around 6pm, followed by a final breakdown of equipment.

Your food while at the clinic will be provided, so don’t sweat having to prepare breakfast and lunch, we’ve got it covered.
