Penn State To Host Free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinics Starting June 28

Penn State University Health Services will host two COVID-19 vaccine clinics for students this summer to encourage vaccinations ahead of the fall semester.

The first clinic will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 28 and 29 in the HUB’s Alumni Hall. There, students can receive the first dose of the two-shot Moderna vaccine if they schedule an appointment through myUHS ahead of time.

On July 26 and 27, students who attended June’s clinics can receive their second and final Moderna doses. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled after students receive their initial doses.

Penn State’s summer vaccine clinics are free for students, but they’re still encouraged to bring their insurance cards and Penn State IDs when they arrive in June and July. Although insurance isn’t required to get a vaccine, UHS could still bill students for additional administration fees.

Any fully vaccinated Penn State student is eligible for weekly drawings for a number of incentives and bonuses, including $1,000 payments, Barnes & Noble gift cards, and footballs signed by James Franklin. To enter, students must upload vaccine information through myUHS and fill out an online opt-in form.

Penn State hasn’t yet required vaccinations for students and employees, and it seems unlikely to do so. Despite a May Faculty Senate vote encouraging vaccine requirements, administrators have reiterated Penn State is more comfortable incentivizing shots than outright requiring them.
