August Dates

Location: Estabrooke Hall, 12-70 Estabrooke Drive
Time: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Day: Wednesdays

No appointment is necessary; community members will choose which vaccine they wish to receive during the registration process at the Woolley Room. Those receiving their first Moderna shot at the campus-based clinic in early August will be able to receive the second vaccination in September.

There is no charge for the vaccine. Proof of insurance is not required. If you have an insurance card, please bring it so that any administrative costs will be billed to your insurance company. No one receiving a vaccination will have out-of-pocket costs.
