COVID-19 Vaccine FAQ

When did TWU begin administering the COVID-19 vaccine to the university community?

On Jan. 5, 2021, the university started inoculations for the virus following state health guidelines.

How much will it cost?

There are no out-of-pocket costs to receive the vaccine. However, the federal government now permits TWU Student Health Services to submit a medical insurance claim for the administrative costs associated with providing the vaccine. Individuals who have medical insurance will be asked to bring their insurance information to the SECOND vaccine appointment. For individuals who do not have insurance, TWU will submit administrative costs to a federal CARES Act fund for reimbursement.

Who is eligible to receive the vaccine at TWU?

TWU faculty, staff, current and incoming students who are age 18 and older are eligible to receive the first two doses of the vaccine. 

A third and/or booster dose is available to those that received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine 5 months or more ago, or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine 2 months or more ago.

Are these vaccines available for the general public, not associated with TWU?

Not at this time.
