COVID-19 Safety & Upcoming Booster Clinics
Dear Campus Community,
As cases of COVID-19 spike across the US this winter, it is exceptionally important to continue to take preventative measures to protect yourself and others. Members of the SU campus community are encouraged to:
- Get vaccinated/stay current with your boosters
- Stay at home if you’re feeling sick
- Test for COVID (no appointments needed to test through Campus Health)
- Wear a mask (KN95 masks are available through Campus Health)
If you are experiencing symptoms, get tested at Campus Health, located in the back of Blackwell Hall – at the top of the long ramp facing the parking lot – between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday-Friday (closed noon-12:45 p.m.).
Faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to test before returning to campus this winter. If you have already returned to campus, free testing is available through Campus Health as a precaution. Additionally, many local pharmacies have take-home supplies of COVID-19 test kits that may be free based on your insurance coverage.
If you are not boosted against COVID-19, Campus Health is holding two upcoming booster clinics on January 27 and February 7 for the Pfizer bivalent booster (appointments are required). Please note that the primary series vaccines are not being offered during these dates.
These clinic dates are free of charge to all campus community members, but appointment space is limited. Most local pharmacies are also offering COVID bivalent vaccinations 7 days a week if you are unable to make one of the clinic dates.
All clinics run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Blackwell Hall. Register for your booster by calling 410-677-0006 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The latest information on COVID-19 and upcoming clinic dates can be found by visiting the University Coronavirus Information page.
Keeping up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations remains the most effective tool to fight COVID-19 and prevent against severe illness. Vaccine clinics and appointments will continue to be offered by Campus Health.
