Vaccine Overview and Resources
Cabrini University requires all faculty, staff, and students to be fully vaccinated. For more information, please visit our COVID-19 Campus Protocols pages on the vaccination requirement, available at cabrini.edu/COVIDvax.
Where can I get vaccinated?
The PA Department of Health is now using Vaccines.gov as the mapping source to help individuals find a location where they can get vaccinated.
For more on COVID-19 vaccines, including how they work, please see our COVID-19 Vaccine FAQs.
The health and safety of our students and staff is always our top priority. The COVID-19 vaccine, which has gone through testing and clinical trials to ensure it meets the highest safety standards, protects those vaccinated against the COVID-19 illness and, in particular, the most serious and life-threatening symptoms of COVID-19.
Please note, vaccinations are free to obtain and do not require health insurance.
Achieving herd immunity requires a 60% to 70% vaccination rate; achieving this level of vaccination would protect our community against future cases and potential outbreaks—and is one step closer to a return to the “normalcy” of pre-COVID times.
The most prevalent vaccines available have been provided by three companies: Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech (Pfizer), and Johnson & Johnson Janssen (Johnson & Johnson or J&J). The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines require two shots, and maximum immunity is reached two weeks after the second shot. The J&J vaccine is administered in one shot, with maximum immunity reached two weeks following.
