Please be reminded that all MSCA unit members are required to be vaccinated against COVID (including receiving booster shots as recommended by the CDC), except those with medical or religious exemptions.
To facilitate compliance, most of the state universities will be holding vaccine clinics on campus. Please check with the administration for details on times and which vaccines are available.
At this point, these are the clinics we are aware of:
Bridgewater State University: The Wellness Center will host vaccination clinics on January 21 and January 24. After that, they will host clinics every two weeks on Fridays (2/4, 2/18 etc.) for the duration of the Spring semester presuming there continues to be sufficient supply of vaccine through the DPH and sufficient demand on campus. Both Pfizer and Moderna will be offered based on availability from DPH.
