COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

Multiple COVID-19 vaccines are being developed, manufactured and approved in the United States. The university is actively pursuing allocation of vaccine from the state and will administer it in accordance with federal and state guidance as part of our plan to keep our students, faculty and staff safe from COVID-19. The Texas Department of State Health Services recently defined Phase 1B priorities to include people over the age of 65 and individuals age 16-64 with certain underlying conditions that put them at greater risk for severe illness from COVID-19. The state makes decisions regarding allocation on a weekly basis, and distributes vaccine accordingly. Visit the Protect Texas Together vaccine distribution web page to learn more.

Election Stress Resources

The culmination of the year-long election cycle has been exhausting. The recent rampage and loss of life in our nation’s capital shocked and grieved us. HealthPoint EAP continues to monitor and respond to the varied needs of our community. We offer these resources, which may be a support to help navigate the spectrum of feelings you are encountering.

As a gentle reminder, because we are all unique, the coping strategies that soothe or support a friend or a colleague may or may not be what you need. We offer a variety of approaches for you to try. Notice what options strengthen or expand practices already in your tool belt and reach out via email or phone to schedule an appointment if you need more. Go to the Counseling Services Page for more information about how to connect with one of our counselors for individual support.
