In a continued effort to keep our campus and community safe, the University of Memphis is partnering with Baptist Medical Group (BMG) to offer vaccinations weekly to all faculty, staff and students from August 12 through September 30.
This week's vaccination event will be Thursday, August 12, from 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m. in the Rose Theatre Lobby. Pre-registration is preferred (register here), but not required. If you have already scheduled your second dose with BMG, you do not need to register again.
Future vaccinations will be on the first floor of the University Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the following days:
- August 19
- August 26
- September 2
- September 9
- September 16
- September 23
- September 30
Faculty, staff and students who receive their vaccination at an on-campus event will be eligible to receive a Chick-fil-A meal coupon and select Tiger merchandise from our bookstore. To redeem, you must present your valid University ID and a copy of your CDC vaccination card from the campus location with that week's date.
For any questions regarding this vaccine distribution, please call 901.227.TEST (8378). In an effort to support our faculty and staff that have yet to be vaccinated, we are providing up to two hours of administrative leave for each dose. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your Human Resources Business Partner.
The University strongly encourages all on our campus to get vaccinated. As a public university in Tennessee, we are not able to require vaccination. That authority rests with the Governor and Tennessee Legislature.
