Free Booster Shots
Need your booster shot? The College and SunRay Pharmacies are hosting a booster clinic on Jan. 11 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 Moderna vaccine series (or any WHO internationally approved vaccine) six months ago or more, you can now get a booster dose of any of the three FDA-authorized vaccines. The CDC has recently changed the booster shot recommendations for Pfizer, and booster shots are now recommended 5 months after receiving the Pfizer shot.
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, including the Delta variant. 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.
