COVID Vaccine Clinics - January 13 and February 3, 2022

Dear colleagues,

As part of the university’s continued partnership with the Houston Health Department, we are pleased to announce that two additional COVID-19 vaccination clinics will be provided to our community. These clinics will be held in 2022 in the RMC Grand Hall.

On Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022, in the RMC Grand Hall, vaccine doses for first, second, and boosters will be provided.

On Thursday, Feb. 3, 2022, vaccine doses for second and boosters will be provided only.

There are 400 total vaccine slots available at each clinic. Please follow the instructions provided below to schedule your appointment:

What to bring: On the day of the clinic, you must bring a government-issued ID or passport that includes your date of birth and your COVID vaccine card. Please note: At your first vaccination appointment, you should have received a CDC-issued COVID-19 Vaccination Record card that indicates which COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. You must bring this vaccination card to your booster shot appointment.

How to Register: A general guidance document is included with this e-mail that is meant to offer assistance navigating the Houston Health Department Patient Portal. Please pay careful attention to the section that explains appointment scheduling. The university vaccine clinics are set up as private events and they will only be accessed on this site by using the invite code shared below.

To Update Rice Vaccine Info: After receiving your COVID vaccine or booster, please update the Rice forms with your new card and information. The faculty/staff form can be found here, and the student form can be found here. If you have previously filled out a form, you can go to the “My Vaccine Status” section at the bottom of the linked page to edit a previous entry. After clicking on the entry, new questions regarding the booster shot and the edit button can be found at the bottom of the form.

Vaccinations are one very important way we can keep ourselves safe, but they are a way in which we can ensure the health and safety of our community. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please schedule your appointment as soon as possible.
