COVID-19 is an immense global challenge, but at UMC, we’re Firm, Not Fearful. We can beat back COVID-19 by using modern resources like vaccines, testing, and accessibility to testing sites whenever we need them. Many of these resources are free to those that need them. So join us in the fight against COVID-19, and let’s make the world a safer place, together.
COVID-19 vaccines are proven to be safe and effective at preventing symptomatic infection of COVID-19. If you have a Primary Care Provider, we advise calling their office to inquire about vaccination, first.
You may also find additional vaccine clinics on the City of Lubbock’s Health Department website: ci.lubbock.tx.us/departments/health-department/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine-clinics
