SMU is receiving another round of the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine for distribution to our University community through the vaccination site near the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center. Once again, all SMU faculty, staff and students are eligible.
Vaccination appointments are by appointment only on a first-come, first-serve basis. Online registration is now open to schedule vaccinations beginning on Friday, April 9.
This additional supply, a transfer allotment from Dallas County, is 1,170 “first doses” of the Pfizer vaccine, along with an equal number of “second doses” to provide required follow-up shots in 21 days.
Please use this registration link to schedule a vaccination appointment. The registration button is also on the Mustang Strong vaccine page along with information about what to expect on the day of your appointment. If you have trouble registering, reach out to the Help Desk at 8-HELP (4357). Here is some additional information for your consideration:
- Students who are planning to leave at the end of the semester should make their first dose appointment by April 16 in order to receive a second dose on campus at (or by the CDC recommended follow-up date).
- If you have received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at SMU’s vaccination site, you’ll be contacted soon to schedule your second dose.
- SMU does not currently have second-dose vaccines available for individuals who have already received their first shot at another location. If your first shot of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine was administered elsewhere, please reach out to your initial vaccine provider to complete your treatment.
- Spouses and dependents of SMU employees are not currently eligible to register but will have an opportunity at a later date
In addition to the on-campus vaccination site, all SMU students, staff and faculty may also register for the vaccine through the Methodist Health System. Once you receive your vaccine, remember to fill out the reporting tool, which will help the University determine how many vaccines to request and inform decisions about operational changes to the campus.
Even if you have received a vaccine, please continue to follow all safety measures as you finish out the spring semester. Wear your mask, practice social distancing and wash your hands often. Pony up and Stay Mustang Safe.
