Do your part to keep Charger Nation safe

UAH administers multiple vaccines, offers will be contingent upon inventory and expirations. All COVID-19 vaccine doses are authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Vaccines are available by appointment only. Students and employees can schedule an appointment through the health portal.  Non-UAH affiliated persons can schedule a vaccine appointment by calling 256-824-2400.

Those who schedule a vaccination will authorize consent through the health portal the morning of their appointment (or will fill out a paper consent if not affiliated with UAH) and must remain at the vaccination site for 15-30 minutes to be monitored for any reaction and to schedule the second dose appointment (for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines).  Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (2 dose series) is currently authorized for emergency use in ages 12 and older.  Moderna (2-dose series) and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines (1 dose only) are currently authorized for emergency use in ages 18 and older.

Information on available vaccines to aid in the decision making process can be found on the FDA’s website, CDC’s website and ADPH’s website. Vaccination is not required for enrollment or employment at this time.
