Janssen COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments Open to All U of A Students 18 and Over



FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Pat Walker Health Center has 2,400 doses of the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen COVID-19 vaccines available for the U of A community. As of March 30, the state has opened vaccine eligibility to include all U of A students. Only a limited number of appointment slots are available each day. If no appointments are available, continue to check back a later time.


Employees and students can schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointment online through the Pat Walker Health Center’s Patient Web Portal:

  • If you are unable to access the Patient Web Portal, please call 479-575-4451, option 1.
  • If you previously had any adverse reactions after a vaccination, call to schedule your appointment.

Vaccination is by appointment only — Individuals without an appointment will not be vaccinated.

The Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine requires one shot, which allows employees and students to be fully vaccinated before the end of spring semester.

  • Must be 18 years of age or older.
  • Cannot serve as second dose if previously received Moderna or Pfizer vaccine.


COVID-19 vaccines are being administered at the Pat Walker Health Center main facility by appointment only — 525 N. Garland Avenue. Use the Northeast Entrance (labeled C). Parking is available across the street in the Garland Avenue Garage – Level 6 (Top Level).

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.


  • A completed Vaccine Consent Form (must be completed prior to appointment)
  • University photo identification
  • Health Insurance card (only required if you have insurance)

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.

Vaccination information for the U of A community and an overview of the university’s COVID-19 Response is available online.
