ON CAMPUS VACCINE REGISTRATION

 

Register for an appointment through CNS, our campus vaccine partner. You will be able to select the on-campus Commander’s House location and an available time on the following days:

  • Tuesday, May 4th from 12pm-6pm
  • Wednesday, May 5th from 9am-3pm

While this vaccine clinic is being opened to support faculty, staff and students, we are also offering vaccinations to members of the general community. You do not have to have a UNid in order to set up a vaccination appointment. That means if you have a spouse, a child (18 or older), a parent, a neighbor, or anyone else who wants a vaccine in your life you should encourage them to make an appointment. The point is to get vaccinations to everyone who wants one.

If you can’t get an appointment in the next week don’t worry. If there is sufficient demand we will be adding more days. We want to put shots in arms and move the community towards herd immunity. Every vaccination is a step towards that goal.

Studies have shown that all of the COVID-19 vaccines approved in the United States are both safe and effective at preventing death, severe illness, symptomatic illness, and infection. All vaccines carry some level of risk, which is why the FDA and the CDC require data from vaccine trials and ask that side effects be reported through the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. As a result, we know that the risk to your health associated with the vaccine is much lower than the risk associated with contracting COVID-19. Click here for more information.

Anyone who is 18 or older, who is not currently exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or who has not tested positive within the past 14 days.
