UHS Offering Free COVID-19 Vaccines Three Days A Week
University Health Services (UHS) is offering free COVID-19 vaccines to all students three days a week, according to a release from Penn State.
Doses of the Moderna vaccine will be available from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every Wednesday through Friday in the Student Health Center. Students interested can schedule an appointment to get vaccinated through myUHS.
Various locations in State College are also offering free COVID-19 vaccines to Penn State students. Centre Volunteers in Medicine is providing free vaccinations for all people 12 and older Monday through Friday. CVS Pharmacy offers Moderna or Pfizer vaccines by walk-in or through appointment. Rite Aid is also offering Moderna, and in some locations, Pfizer, via walk-in or appointment.
UHS Senior Director Micah Griffin and student body President Erin Boas will be hosting a discussion on COVID-19 vaccines on UHS’s Instagram (@psu_uhs) via Instagram Live at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31.
To date, Penn State has shied away from full-on COVID-19 vaccine requirements, opting to only incentivize and encourage them. Full FDA approval of Pfizer’s vaccine won’t change that, according to a university spokesperson.
Those who haven’t submitted proof of vaccination to the university are required to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing this fall. Punishments for noncompliance include conduct referrals, suspensions, and bans from campus events, including football games.
