Fall semester is coming up fast. Do your part for the health of our campus and make sure you are vaccinated before returning! We all want to get back to a normal healthy campus- please help us and help yourself. Vaccines are plentiful in offices and local retail pharmacies- be a responsible Hawkeye and get vaccinated. If you are here in IC or close, call our schedulers at 319-335-8394 to get scheduled for a COVID-19 vaccine now. We currently have Pfizer BioNTech vaccine in our clinic.
Student Health will be providing COVID-19 vaccines at On-Iowa check-in during the week of August 16th. But don't wait! Get it before you come to campus so you have immunity when you arrive. Look for a vaccine near you at this site.
When you complete the COVID-19 vaccine series by any provider (both vaccines for Pfizer/Moderna, or one Johnson & Johnson), don't forget to take your vaccine card (or other vaccine record) to the IMU Welcome Center for your $10 gift card to the Iowa City Downtown merchants! These will be available in the summer and into the fall, while supplies last.
It is critical that you complete the vaccine series with BOTH DOSES, at the appropriate interval, if you get Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. Both doses are needed for full immunity. This is especially important in light of increasing incidence of the delta variant of COVID-19 disease. The delta variant is more transmissible than the alpha variant currently dominant in the US. Full vaccination protects against the delta variant. Get fully vaccinated as soon as you can!
