All UT Health East Texas Physicians clinics will be closed Tuesday due to inclement weather. This includes the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at UT Health North Campus Tyler, 11937 U.S. Highway 271. Anyone who has a COVID-19 vaccine appointment Tuesday may come to the clinic to receive their second dose on another day this week, weather permitting. They will not need a scheduled appointment, but will need to bring the vaccine card they received at their first appointment. The recommendation is to get the second dose as close as possible to the scheduled date, and it is safe and effective for those scheduled Monday or Tuesday to receive the vaccine on another day this week if weather permits. Please check uthealtheasttexas.com for the latest news on clinic closures.
All other clinics will be contacting patients to reschedule their appointments. Should you have an immediate need for care, we have providers available for telehealth visits, which can be scheduled at UTHealthEastTexasDoctors.com or by calling 903-596-DOCS (3627).
