5 Things to Know About Your On-Campus Covid-19 Vaccine

In a recent Fairfield University survey, 80% of students on our campus have reported that they have either received or plan to receive a vaccination for Covid-19. And as Fairfield University students, you are eligible to be vaccinated in the state of Connecticut, no matter what state you’re from. Scheduling a vaccine can be done online within minutes and the process is being simplified even further with an on-campus clinic.

1.  We're Bringing the Vaccine to You

In continuing our efforts to ensure the health and wellness of our community, Fairfield is partnering with Griffin Hospital to administer the Pfizer vaccination right here in Stag Country.

2.  The Process is Quick and Easy

There are two phases: Dose 1 on April 21, 2021 and Dose 2 on May 13, 2021. During each session, 1,500 vaccinations will be distributed inside the University’s field house in the recreation complex. All you need to bring with you is your health insurance card and proof of identification—be sure to wear a short-sleeved shirt too!

3.  You Are in Good Hands

The Pfizer vaccine will be administered by Griffin Hospital staff in addition to students, faculty, and staff from the Fairfield Egan School of Nursing & Health Studies.

4.  Getting Vaccinated Minimizes Your Risk of Infection (or Reinfection)

Just because you have had Covid-19 in the past does not mean that you can’t become infected again. Covid-19 can spread anywhere and getting vaccinated acts as an added barrier between you and the virus, ultimately protecting both you and your peers.

5.  You Can Celebrate this Milestone

It’s been a long year for everyone and for many, getting vaccinated is a light at the end of the tunnel. On your way out of the clinic, snap a picture in front of our social media backdrop and share on social with #StagsGotTheVax!
