Schedule your COVID-19 vaccination

Individuals ages 12 and older are now eligible to receive a vaccination for COVID-19.

We encourage you to take the first available vaccine appointment that is offered to you, whether that appointment is with UI Health Care, your local pharmacy, or elsewhere. The first available appointment for a vaccine is the best one for you and our community.

Walk-in COVID-19 vaccinations available

Walk-in vaccinations are available for people age 18 and older at UI Hospitals & Clinics between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Pomerantz Family Pavilion Level 2 Pharmacy. Take Elevator L to Level 2.

If walking in isn’t a convenient option for you, you can also schedule your vaccination in advance at UI Health Care–Iowa River Landing.
