University of Wyoming students can receive Moderna COVID-19 vaccine doses and boosters as well as flu shots during a special clinic at UW’s Student Health Service Tuesday, Jan. 25, from 1-4 p.m.
The Moderna boosters will be available for free to students 18 and older who completed their primary COVID-19 vaccination series -- Moderna, Pfizer or Johnson & Johnson -- at least five months ago. Moderna doses also will be available for those who wish to start or complete the primary two-dose series.
Students should make appointments for the boosters during the 1-4 p.m. time window by calling (307) 766-2130 during clinic hours.
In addition to the COVID-19 vaccine clinic Tuesday, the Student Health Service is offering flu shots at the same time, and students may receive both on the same day if needed. While the COVID-19 boosters are free, the flu shot costs $29. The clinic will bill the student medical insurance for those who have it. For those who don’t, the clinic will bill that charge to their student accounts and provide them the documentation needed to self-submit to their own insurance for reimbursement.
While COVID-19 vaccinations are not required for UW students and employees -- instead, they’re strongly encouraged -- students and employees must report their vaccinations and boosters once they’ve received them. This allows the university to track overall vaccination numbers. The information is not being used for any other purpose, except to enter those who’ve reported their vaccinations into drawings for prizes. The university’s privacy protocols are being followed.
To upload vaccination documentation to the Student Health Service patient portal, take a photo of your vaccination document and upload the picture here: http://patientportal.uwyo.edu, using your regular UW user ID and password. Alternatively, students can report their vaccinations and boosters by emailing photos of their vaccination documents to Student Health at email@example.com.
Those who’ve received and reported booster shots can avoid quarantine if exposed to people infected with COVID-19.
In addition to the Student Health Service clinic, UW students and employees can receive COVID-19 vaccines and boosters at several locations in Laramie. They include: Walmart, Walgreens, Pole Mountain Pharmacy, Ridley’s, Stitches Acute Care, Laramie Pediatrics, Albany Community Health Clinic, Ivinson Medical Group, the Downtown Clinic and Family Physicians of Laramie.
