COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

Updated Jan. 20, 2022

Large-Scale Booster Clinics

On Sunday, Jan. 23 and Monday, Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the campus will conduct two large-scale COVID-19 booster clinics in the Campus Center for faculty, staff and students. While we strongly encourage all students to get boosted before returning to campus, these clinics will provide them and others in our campus community an opportunity to get boosted prior to the start of classes Jan. 25.

Please book your appointment online. You will need to login with your Net ID and password, then choose an appointment window in 15 minute blocks and your preferred vaccine. Walk-Ins will be accepted, but we encourage everyone to book an appointment.

UMass remains committed to serving our region. Following the campus-specific booster clinics, the community vaccine clinic will reopen on Thursday, Jan. 27 and Friday, Jan. 28. Sign-up for appointments will begin on the morning of Tuesday, Jan. 25. Please visit the PHPC Vaccine Clinic page to book an appointment.


In partnership with Gov. Charlie Baker’s administration, UMass Amherst continues to make vaccination appointments available at the university’s public COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

The vaccination clinic is run by the university’s Public Health Promotion Center (PHPC), in collaboration with the College of Nursing. 

Please refer to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts COVID-19 Vaccination website for more information 

The clinic is being held at the UMass Amherst Campus Center, 1 Campus Center Way. Free parking is available at the nearby Campus Center Parking Garage. 

Boosters are recommended for everyone 12 years and older if it has been five months since receiving the second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or two months since the single  dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Boosters are required for all eligible students, faculty and staff for the Spring 2022 semester.

The Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster is available to anyone age 18 and older. The Pfizer COVID-19 booster is available to anyone age 12 and older.

You are eligible for a booster if:

  • Moderna: It has been at least five months since your second dose
  • Pfizer: It has been at least five months since your second dose
  • Johnson & Johnson: It has been at least two months since your single dose  

You can mix and match vaccines. You do not need to get the same vaccine brand for your booster and your original COVID-19 vaccination. If you are age 12-17, you can only get a Pfizer booster.
