#HTVaxUp – COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Vaccines are one of the strongest tools we have to control and prevent infectious diseases. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe, effective, and free. Vaccinations are the best intervention we have for reliable protection for our entire community.



When am I considered fully vaccinated? 

You are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, and 2 weeks after your single dose of the Janssen (Johnson and Jonhson) vaccine. 

Where do I report my vaccination status? 

Students, send your vaccine records to Employees upload your vaccine records to Paycom. All we need is a clear picture of your vaccine card. 

Who is required to report vaccination status? 

All students living in the residence halls and student athletes are required to have an official vaccination record or notarized exemption on file. Students send vaccine records to All employees are required to have an official vaccination record or notarized exemption on file. Employees upload vaccine records to Paycom.  

To opt out of weekly routine testing, all individuals must report their official vaccination record – students to and employees in Paycom. Vaccination exemption does not exempt an individual from routine testing. 

Can I get vaccinated on campus? 

CommUnityCare, the clinic adjacent to campus, is offering the Moderna vaccine at NO COST. You do not need an appointment or insurance. Also, stay tuned to email and the HT Ram Check app for announcements of additional on-campus vaccine clinics.  

Where can I get vaccinated off campus? 

You can find other local vaccines sites at Most pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and HEB, are offering vaccinations. You can also get vaccinated at the local Health Department. Vaccination is always no cost, does not require insurance, and many do not require an appointment!  

Do I have to get my second dose in the same place I received my first dose? 

NO, you can get your second dose anywhere all you need is your vaccine card so they can verify which vaccine you were given and on which date. You do not need to bring the vaccine card with you, a picture is enough; however, keeping your record on one vaccination card is recommended. 

Where can I get more information?
