Cabrini University, through a partnership with 15toknow, hosted a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on campus Thursday, May 6, providing the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine free of charge to a total of 85 students, faculty, staff, and members of the local community. The second vaccine shot will be available on campus Thursday, May 27.
“The Cabrini community has shown incredible resilience and conscientiousness during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are pleased to provide students, faculty, staff, and local community members with on-campus access to this vital vaccine,” said Stephen M. Rupprecht, EdD, Dean of Students and COVID-19 Task Force Chair. “We are hopeful that a return to normalcy is on the horizon and we will continue to operate with the safety of our campus and local communities as top priority.”
All participants unable to return to campus for their second shot on May 27 have received instructions for finishing their vaccination through CVS pharmacy.
The May 27 vaccination clinic will also be open to anyone interested in receiving their first dose, with walk-in appointments welcome between 10am and noon. These individuals must procure their second dose separately, through another local pharmacy or clinic.
As with the May 6 clinic, the May 27 follow-up vaccinations will be conducted according to the latest local COVID-19 mitigation measures, including social distancing, capacity limits, and an on-campus mask requirement.
