    The University will host a fall vaccination clinic for the much awaited, bivalent booster dose against COVID-19.

    The one-day clinic will take place on Friday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the College of Health Professions, Room 124 on the McNichols campus. Our clinic partner, RiteAid Pharmacy, will be administering both Moderna and Pfizer bivalent booster vaccines.

    You will also be able to receive the flu vaccine, during the booster clinic. If you already signed up for the bivalent booster and would like to add on the flu vaccine, simple email covid-care@udmercy.edu with your name and indicate that you would also like the flu vaccine.

    Before signing up, please be sure that you are available between 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday, November 4 AND that you are interested in receiving a bivalent booster, which requires that more than two months have passed since receiving your final dose of a primary COVID-19 vaccine. If you have recently had a COVID infection, the CDC recommends waiting three months before receiving this bivalent booster.

    Appointments are required for both the flu and bivalent booster, and the sign-up below is on a first-come, first-served basis. Following sign-up, you will receive a confirmation reply and within three business days from sign up, you will receive an appointment time, consent form, and further details on what to bring with you the day of the clinic.

    student happy about a vaccine

    Good news! The Novavax monovalent COVID-19 booster is now available for those 18 years and older.

    For those unable or unwilling to receive an mRNA vaccine, this primary vaccine and booster option is a tremendous benefit to the vaccination program against COVID-19.

    To receive a Novavax monovalent booster instead of an updated (bivalent) Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna booster, you must have completed a primary series of vaccination by any manufacturer, but have not previously received a COVID-19 booster; meaning that this will be your first booster dose.

    Many pharmacy’s now offer Novavax primary vaccine or Novavax booster, including Costco Pharmacy. Search for other locations.

    You can also find Novavax manufacturer details.
