Registration Opens for Campus COVID Vaccine Clinics

 

 



 

COVID-19 Vaccines Available to Ages 16+ Starting Sunday

Wednesday, Missoula Health Officer Ellen Leahy announced that the county will open COVID-19 vaccine availability to all residents age 16 and older beginning Sunday, March 28. In response to this information, your campus vaccination planning team has moved a previously announced clinic scheduled for April 1 to instead occur on Sunday, March 28.

It is important to us to be able to offer vaccinations to our community members as soon as we are able. Two additional clinics are scheduled for March 29 and April 2, and registration for all of them is open now. Over the next week, more than 3,000 doses are available for the UM family. UM students and employees, as well as their partners, spouses and household members, are encouraged to schedule an appointment.

All UM clinics will take place in the north end of the Adams Center on campus. Click the links below to sign up:
