Need your booster shot? The College and SunRay Pharmacies are hosting booster clinics on March 29 and April 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Athletics Center on Main Campus. Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson boosters will be available for faculty, staff and students.
Pre-registration is required, and participation is optional. For your appointment, please:
- Wear a T-shirt underneath your winter clothing
- Bring your ID, Medical Insurance Card (if you have one) and CDC/Vaccination Record Card
If you received the Johnson & Johnson/Janssen vaccine at least two months ago, or if you received the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series (or any WHO internationally approved vaccine) five months ago or more, you can now get a booster dose of any of the three FDA-authorized vaccines.
The CDC recommends that ALL people over the age of 18 obtain an additional dose of a COVID-19 vaccine (referred to as a “booster” dose) a few months after completing your initial vaccination. A booster dose helps the vaccine remain as effective as possible over long periods of time, and increases your body’s protection against COVID-19. Read the latest CDC guidance.
Vaccination has been shown to significantly decrease your risk of contracting COVID-19. It also greatly reduces the chance of severe disease; contributes to society-wide immunity to this deadly virus; and limits the emergence of more contagious, disease-causing viral variants. It will keep our community safer and help us maintain a full in-person living, learning and working experience. The COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States show remarkable effectiveness, and the CDC recommends them for everyone age 5 and older.
