COVID-19 vaccine and booster clinics

We strongly encourage all students, faculty and staff to be fully vaccinated as soon as possible, for their own health and safety and for that of our campus community. The medical data and public health recommendations are clear: being fully vaccinated will greatly decrease your chances of becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus or transmitting the virus to your friends, family, or others with whom you have close contact. In addition, fully vaccinated people who become infected with COVID-19 experience milder symptoms, are rarely hospitalized, and almost never die from the disease.

The proportion of our campus community that is fully vaccinated is an important factor in determining our health and safety protocols.

Upcoming vaccination and booster clinics

The following clinics will be open to the public.

  • Thursday, January 6: 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. in Lantern Room, 1st floor, Student Center
  • Thursday, January 13: 2 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. in Lantern Room, 1st floor, Student Center

Uploading vaccination and booster dose information

Students, faculty and staff, once you’re fully vaccinated, please consider sharing your proof of vaccination with the College!

If you have not already, please report your vaccination status and booster doses to us as soon as possible by following this link to our confidential portal.

Your choice to voluntarily report your vaccination status will help us protect the health and safety of you, your family, friends, classmates, and all members of our campus community. We will hold your information in confidence and use it only to establish our campus health and safety protocols.
