On-Campus COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Current On-Campus Availability

As we look forward to welcoming our community back to campus more fully in the fall, we know that COVID-19 vaccination will be an important part of that process. We continue to strongly recommend that all those who are able to get vaccinated do so. 

When fully vaccinated, people are able to more safely gather without masking or social distancing, and do not need to quarantine following an exposure (unless symptomatic). The latest guidance for vaccinated individuals from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) can be found here.  

Vaccine is currently not available on campus, however individuals still looking for an appointment can now schedule directly at one of the state’s community sites through Minnesota’s Vaccine Connector. Many pharmacies are also offering vaccination appointments; additional information can be found on their websites.

Reporting

MDH recommends that we assess vaccination levels within the campus community, so we are asking that all members of our community complete this short, anonymous vaccination survey — even if you have shared this information with us via a previous form  — by July 15

HSSH students who have received the COVID-19 vaccine should also upload their documents into EXXAT. Students will receive further information from their respective programs.

Key things to know about COVID-19 vaccines

COVID-19 Vaccine Basics

Studies show that the vaccine is effective at preventing illness, and experts also believe the vaccine can help you from becoming seriously ill if you do contract the virus.

After being vaccinated, you may experience soreness at the injection site, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, and/or fever.

Yes. While we know that the vaccine is good at preventing illness, we don’t have enough information about how it impacts transmission to others. For now, it’s still important to continue wearing a mask, maintaining social distance, limiting contacts, and washing your hands

In order to help MDH track vaccine and dose distribution, you should get your second dose of the Moderna vaccine at the same site where you received your first dose of the vaccine.

If you were unable to receive your second dose from the same location and we have vaccine available on campus, you can schedule an appointment to complete your series.
