Employee Recognition Week: Stories from you
UT Southwestern recognizes long-term employees play an invaluable role in the success and esteem of the institution. During Employee Recognition Week (today through June 11), read the stories of the nurse who met John Travolta while on shift, the woman students dubbed the “Queen of UT Southwestern”, and many more in Center Times Plus.
Walk-up vaccinations available for existing patients
UTSW patients who are on our Dallas campus for a clinic visit, testing, imaging, or other care now have the opportunity to receive a same-day COVID-19 vaccination. The process will largely mirror how we handle flu vaccinations – if a patient is already visiting any of our main campus clinical buildings and they want to be vaccinated, providers can send them to our vaccination site on the ninth floor of West Campus Building 3. The team there will handle the rest. At this time, we are prepared to provide walk-up vaccinations for existing patients whose information is already in our system.
