COVID-19 Vaccination Registration for April

Vice President for Student Affairs | April 16, 2021

Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Texas State University is pleased to announce a joint vaccination event with Hays County on April 22nd from 9am to 8pm at the University Events Center on the San Marcos Campus.  Pfizer COVID-19 vaccinations will be offered to anyone who is 16 years of age and older.  You do not have to be a Texas State student or employee to register to receive a vaccination at this event.  This is a great opportunity for faculty, staff and students—as well as family members, friends, retired faculty and staff and others to be vaccinated.  Please spread the word and share the vaccination registration link below.

If you have already received a COVID-19 vaccine OR if you have already received an appointment confirmation email for another vaccination event, please disregard this email.


Pfizer vaccinations will be provided on Thursday, April 22nd at the University Events Center on Charles Austin Drive.  Parking will be available in the Coliseum lot located adjacent to Aquarena Springs Drive and Charles Austin Drive.

Be prepared to stay 15-30 minutes after your vaccination for observation.

Please register for your vaccination.  Vaccine supply is limited and not everyone requesting vaccination will get a reservation. Walk-ins will be allowed but cannot be guaranteed a vaccination.  Please do not arrive before your reservation time as that will create longer lines and increase the wait for everyone.

After clicking on the registration portal, select the Texas State option and click April 22 to view vaccination slots available.

2nd Dose Appointment: Your 2nd dose of Pfizer vaccine will be scheduled for Wednesday, May 12, 2021. Please be sure that you will be available for the 2nd dose on this date.


Parental Consent Required: If you are under 18 on the date of the vaccination, you must have signed parental consent. Call 512-245-2161, option 5 for assistance.

If you have the following history, you CANNOT receive this vaccine:

  1. History of an allergic reaction to a prior dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, or any component of a COVID-19 vaccine.
    Allergic reaction to any component of a COVID-19 vaccine is a contraindication to this vaccine. Components of COVID-19 vaccines include PEG (polyethylene glycol) and polysorbate.
    A complete list of ingredients is available at the following link:

If you have the following history, you should POSTPONE your vaccination:

  1. History of a positive COVID-19 test during the past 60 days.
    Vaccination should be postponed until you have recovered from COVID-19 illness and your isolation period is over.  We recommend that you consider postponing your vaccination until at least 60 days after your infection because current evidence suggests that reinfection is uncommon during this time.  If you received monoclonal antibody or convalescent plasma as treatment for COVID-19 illness, we recommend that you wait a minimum of 90 days before being vaccinated to avoid interference with the vaccine-induced immune response.
  2. Received any other vaccine or immunization in the past 14 days.
    We recommend a minimum interval of at least 14 days before or after administration of other vaccines.

If you have the following history, you should CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN prior to vaccination:

  1. Bleeding disorder or blood thinner.
    Please consult your physician to determine if COVID-19 vaccine can be administered safely.
    After vaccination, be prepared to hold pressure on the vaccination site for 2 minutes.
  2. Current pregnancy or breastfeeding.
    If you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, please consult your physician regarding the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

If you have had a prior dose of COVID-19 vaccine, you must return to the site where you received your first dose for a second dose, if indicated. We are NOT currently scheduling second doses for persons who started their vaccination series elsewhere.
