After Requesting a COVID-19 Vaccination at UT Health Austin:

After UT Health Austin receives your information, you will receive a confirmation email within hours, but you will not receive a verified appointment time and date. Appointments will only be scheduled when vaccine is allocated by the Texas Department of State Health Services, shipped, and delivered, which may take several weeks. In order to follow State of Texas prioritization guidelines, submitting a completed COVID-19 Vaccination Request Form confirming priority status is required before you are eligible for an appointment. If you have not completed this questionnaire but received or accessed an online opportunity to schedule an appointment, your appointment slot will be canceled. UT Austin has inactivated certain appointment links because those links were accessed by ineligible individuals.

Once we have received sufficient vaccine to proceed with your appointment, you will receive an email with the subject line “Austin COVID Vaccine Clinic” that includes a link to create an account that will allow you to self-schedule your appointment day and time. When you receive your link from the Austin COVID Vaccine Clinic, please follow these instructions (also available in Spanish) on how to create your account and sign up for your vaccination appointment day and time. We encourage you to check your inbox including your “spam” or “junk” folders regularly as the Austin COVID Vaccine Clinic may not be recognized by your email domain. The email will be sent from this address: noreply@patient-message.com.

If you already created an account, you can return to your portal to finish the self-scheduling process by visiting here. (This is also where your will view your appointment day and time after you have self-scheduled as well as where you will view and obtain your vaccination medical record.)

We appreciate your patience as receiving your link to sign up for your vaccination appointment may take several weeks.
