Upcoming Vaccination Clinics
Norwich University is coordinating with the Vermont Department of Health to host two additional vaccination clinics on campus.
DATES: Wednesday, September 22 and Friday, September 24
TIME: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Wise Campus Center, Meeting Room 218
The clinics will include Moderna and Pfizer vaccines as well as a limited quantity of the single dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines.
Students who received first doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine on campus August 29 or September 1 should come for the second dose on September 22 or 24.
Any student who has not yet been vaccinated, including students with religious exemptions who wish to be vaccinated, should attend one of these clinics. Norwich will schedule additional clinics to support the need for second doses if needed.
