Anyone receiving the vaccine will need to complete the following action items.
- Bring their insurance information. Insurance is not required. If you do not have insurance, you are still eligible to receive the vaccine for free.
- Complete a consent form
We encourage members of the college community to be vaccinated if and when they can do so. We also acknowledge that some individuals have health conditions or other reasons why they cannot be vaccinated.
The distribution of a vaccine is welcome news, but we must continue to be as diligent as ever in safety precautions, including regular COVID-19 testing, wearing face coverings, social distancing, hand washing, and avoiding large gatherings.
Thank you in advance for your understanding as we work through this next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and rely on our public health leaders’ guidance to make the best decisions for our community.
