The supply of COVID-19 vaccines is improving and a variety of distributors are providing vaccinations in our area.

Check the state vaccine locator tool.

***Official copies of test results can be downloaded directly from LabCorp (Student Health Insurance Only), or PathGroup if you have insurance other than Student Health. After you create an account through the appropriate portal above you will have downloadable access to any COVID test you’ve had performed at the Health Center.***
Online scheduling through the Portal is currently available only for asymptomatic COVID testing. To avoid spreading infection, symptomatic students cannot be tested in the area reserved for students without symptoms and must speak with a telephone triage nurse to schedule an appointment.
All other appointments must scheduled by calling the Telephone Triage Nurse at 865-974-5080. Drop-in or walk-in assessments are not permitted at this time. Visits to the Student Health Center are by appointment only.
Depending on the severity of your health concern, the Telephone Triage Nurse may advise you to be seen through the UT Medical Center Emergency Room.
During the COVID19 pandemic, you are required to upload a front and back copy of your insurance card using the upload tab in the Patient Portal. All paperwork is now done electronically and must be filled via the Patient Portal prior to each visit to the Student Health Center.
EverlyWell COVID19 Self-Testing Kits
If you have recently participated in campus saliva testing, wait at least 3-4 days before requesting an Everlywell COVID19 at home self-testing kit from the Health Center. If saliva testing indicates you require a follow-up nasal swab test, you will be contacted by a Health Center representative to schedule testing to be performed by Health Center staff. If you have not been contacted by the Health Center for additional testing 3-4 days after providing a saliva sample, you may then pickup a self-testing kit from the Health Center. Kits will be distributed between the hours of 10am-2pm Mon-Fri. Self-testing kits are voluntary, and you must submit a Self-Isolation form and Consent form through the portal prior to picking up your kit.
For more information view the EverlyWell section in the Clinics, Services, and Staff menu tab.
Daily Health Self-Check App
All students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to complete the Daily Health Self-check prior to their arrival on campus each day. For those living on campus, it should be completed before departing your on-campus residence at the start of each day. It is available on the Tennessee App for your phone or by using the button below.
On the Daily Health Self-check, individuals answering any question in the affirmative will be prompted to stay at home and complete the online Self-isolation Form. Submission of the Self-isolation Form prompts multiple actions from Facility Services and the Contact Tracing Team, as well as University Housing or the Office of Sorority and Fraternity Life for those residing in on-campus housing.
You must complete the Self-isolation Form anytime you may need to self-isolate.
