UPDATE as of 9 a.m. 10/7/21: All Pfizer Comirnaty vaccines appointments are filled, but a limited number of Johnson&Johnson/Janssen vaccines are available. (For information about the J&J/J vaccine, visit here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/janssen.html)
COVID-19 vaccinations are an instrumental tool in ending the pandemic. To help keep our MBU community healthy, the University is partnering with the Jefferson County Department of Health to hold a COVID vaccine drive on campus on Oct. 7, and held an initial drive on Sept. 16. Vaccination not only protects yourself but also your friends, family and community.
The FDA-approved Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, Comirnaty, will be available for free through the drive, and no health insurance is needed.
Individuals are considered initially fully immunized after receiving two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, two doses of the Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson&Johnson/Janssenn vaccine. Doses are not interchangeable between vaccines.
Individuals who are 18+ and need their first, second, third dose or booster (Do I qualify for a third dose/booster?) injection can register for an appointment. The clinic will be on Oct. 7, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The site will be in Lot B, the parking lot near the chapel. Registration can be completed here or on this page.
*Masks will be required during the vaccine clinic*
This fall semester, all in-person MBU undergraduate, graduate and regional learning center students who submit documentation of being fully immunized will receive a $50 prepaid debit card. Students may voluntarily submit a copy of their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card through a private & secure form available here by October 22 to receive the gift card.
Individuals who are fully vaccinated may also have an expedited quarantine period.
MBU highly encourages the students, staff and faculty to become vaccinated against COVID-19. At this time, COVID-19 vaccines are not required.
