University Health Services can provide appointments for students to receive the Moderna bivalent vaccine. Specific dates and times are listed below. If you are not able to schedule during these times, please see the options for getting a vaccine in the community.
Moderna Bivalent Vaccine
All vaccine appointments must be scheduled online via myUHS as a nurse appointment. They are available on Thursdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in the Student Health Center on the University Park Campus.
The Moderna bivalent COVID-19 vaccines are formulated to protect against the original SARS-CoV-2 virus — the virus that causes COVID-19 — as well as the omicron variant. It is available to anyone 18 years of age and older who received their last COVID-19 vaccine at least two months ago. Those who recently had COVID-19 may consider waiting to receive the booster for three months. We urge students to stay up to date on their shots and receive the booster if they are eligible.
What to bring
Students attending the vaccine clinic should bring their Penn State ID. Students should also bring a copy of their health insurance card or upload their insurance information to myUHS ahead of the clinic. The vaccine is free to students; however, University Health Services will bill students' health insurance for administration fees. (Health Insurance is not required to receive a vaccination.)
Appointments in the Community
Students who are not able to receive a vaccine on the dates offered through University Health Services can visit a vaccine location in the community. If you receive your vaccine through a community provider, please upload your vaccine record through myUHS after you receive both doses and any subsequent boosters.
