COVID-19: I am interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and/or booster. Where can I get the vaccine?

Posted by on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 in .

COVID-19 vaccines have been shown to be  safe and effective  at preventing serious illness or hospitalization and reduces potential transmission to others even if you do get infected. The rapid development and expansion of the vaccine is an unprecedented achievement in the history of medicine and is one in which scientists and clinicians at Vanderbilt University and Vanderbilt University Medical Center  played  leading roles. This underscores the power of our university’s relentless pursuit of innovation and our mission to be of service to our community.

Vanderbilt students can contact Student Health to schedule a vaccine if interested.  Faculty, staff and post docs who are VUMC patients can obtain a vaccine at VUMC and should contact their primary care physician, schedule through the myHealth app and/or find more information here. Individuals can also look into options to be vaccinated in the local Nashville community.
