COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Per the CDC: If you get your COVID-19 vaccine first, wait at least 14 days before getting any other vaccine, including a flu or shingles vaccine. If you get another vaccine first, wait at least 14 days before getting your COVID-19 vaccine.

Please note: If you are overdue for Occupational Health requirements due to the delay of immunizations and/or screenings in relation to receipt of the COVID-19 vaccine, there will not be adverse consequences as long as you schedule the required services as soon as possible in relation to the COVID-19 timeline. You will continue to receive reminder emails until UOHS receives documentation of your completed requirements.

Twin Cities

Injury or Potential Exposure

Seek medical treatment as soon as possible!  University employees may choose to go to the nearest Emergency Department or a medical provider of their own choice, but we do recommend the nearest HealthPartners Occupational and Environmental Medicine (HPOEM) location. If planning to visit HPOEM, it is recommended that you call ahead at (952) 883-6999 to reduce wait times. If you cannot get through to HPOEM by phone, proceed directly to the clinic. If you are located outside of the Twin Cities, find clinic information by clicking on your location in the gray boxes above.

When you arrive at the clinic: mention that your visit is in connection with a work-related incident. 

Outside of normal business hours, please visit the nearest Emergency Department.

Information on applying immediate first aid when the incident involves something potentially infectious can be found on the Accidental or Potential Exposure page.
