Dear Wheaton Community,
As the Omicron variant and other variants have started to make a significant impact on the world’s response to the pandemic, we have been encouraged by health officials to receive the COVID-19 booster.
We are excited to partner again with Pelmeds to host a COVID-19 booster clinic on campus available to students, faculty, and staff. Many of you will remember that Pelmeds brought two vaccination clinics to our campus last spring. On Thursday, December 16, members of our community who have not yet received a COVID-19 booster will be able to access the Pfizer or Moderna booster (your choice) in our one-day clinic located in the Trustee Conference Room in Emerson Dining Hall. We plan to host another clinic in late January, but wanted to provide the opportunity to those who are eligible to receive the booster before the holiday season and winter break.
Am I eligible to participate in this booster clinic? To receive a booster, you must:
- Be at least 18 years of age,
- AND have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccination at least two months ago, OR received the second dose of Moderna/Pfizer (or other WHO-approved Covid19 vaccine series) at least six months ago.
Any students, staff or faculty seeking to schedule one of these additional appointments must fill out the registration form available through Cvent. To complete the form, you will only need your name, email, and your specific booster type to book an available appointment time. All registrants must arrive at least 5 minutes early to complete the necessary waivers and provide their medical insurance information prior to their appointment. Note that the vaccine is available at no cost even if you do not have insurance.
Items you must bring to your appointment:
- You must bring your Vaccine Card to your appointment.
- Medical insurance card or information.
The registration will close at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15. There are only an additional 135 appointments available so register now!
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay safe and be well,
