Don't Wait. Vaccinate!
Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is an essential step in ending the pandemic and returning to normal on campus.
On Monday, Aug. 23, the FDA announced full approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. As anticipated, UL Lafayette students will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination, a physician’s certification that the vaccine is medically contraindicated, or a written dissent. Learn more about the vaccination requirement.
On-Campus Vaccination Site
A COVID-19 vaccination site is open on campus for the Fall 2021 semester for University students, faculty and staff members, and the general public. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be administered. You can walk in and register on-site.
The clinic is open from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays in the former University Bookstore building at 210 E. St. Mary Blvd. This is the same location as the on-campus testing site.
Parking will be available in the E.K. Long parking lot at the corner of East St. Mary Boulevard and Girard Park Circle, and at a few reserved spots outside Burke-Hawthorne Hall.
The clinics will be administered by members of the Louisiana National Guard in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Health and UL Lafayette.

Starting Monday, Aug. 16, the first 6,160 students at UL Lafayette to get their first or second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines at the on-campus clinic may receive a $100 bank card as part of Louisiana’s Shot for $100 Incentive Program.
Students who will receive their second dose of the vaccine must adhere to the vaccine schedule – 21 days between doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 28 days between doses of the Moderna vaccine. Additionally, if you have a vaccination appointment scheduled with another provider and you want to participate in the incentive program, you should cancel that appointment.
Eligible students will receive $100 only once, regardless of whether they receive two doses of the vaccine.
If you have questions about the Shot for $100 program or COVID-19 vaccines, call Louisiana's COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 1-855-453-0774.
