COVID-19 vaccines are being administered at the Pat Walker Health Center main facility by appointment only. Check-in at the Northeast Entrance (labeled C).

The COVID-19 vaccine will be provided to you with no out-of-pocket cost. However, PWHC will charge an administration fee to your insurance provider to cover vaccine-related expenses. Uninsured patients will have fees covered by the Health Resource and Services Administration's Provider Relief Fund.

Although not required, Pat Walker Health Center strongly recommends getting vaccinated against COVID-19. The vaccine will not only help protect you against COVID-19 but also help prevent serious illness if you do contract the virus that causes COVID-19.
