University of Arizona COVID-19 Vaccination Information

After six months of operation, and more than 240,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccine dispensed to members of the Southern Arizona community, the University of Arizona POD officially closed Friday, June 25. There are still many ways to get vaccinated.


While it has been highly visible, the POD was just one of many interconnected operations related to the state and county vaccination campaigns. The University’s freezer farm will continue to operate, storing vaccine that will be distributed throughout Southern Arizona via the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health Mobile Health Unit program and partners such as the Pima County Health Department. 

Who can get vaccinated?

COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and our best shot at getting back to normal.

Anyone 12 years and older can get vaccinated. The University is not requiring students, faculty, or staff to get vaccinated. However, the University strongly encourages vaccination to protect yourself and the community.

Find Your Vaccine

If you’re in Tucson, you can receive your vaccine at several locations across Pima County. If you’re outside of Tucson, check VaccineFinder for availability in your area. 

Campus Health is now offering the Pfizer vaccine (first and second doses) to benefits-eligible employees and students through at least the end of the fall semester. Visit for more information.

Upload Your Vaccine Document 

Uploading your vaccine document will help the University track our progress towards campus immunity. More than 21,000 Wildcats have already completed their upload!  

Please remember that we are not asking students or employees about their vaccination status. Vaccination status does not serve as a basis to limit student involvement in any academic activity.
