COVID Updates

Why should you wear a mask? Our community is currently experiencing a high COVID transmission rate. Although masks are not mandatory, the SHC highly encourages the usage of masks for both vaccinated and un-vaccinated individuals in order to protect others as well as yourself.

Are you FULLY vaccinated? This is great news! Being vaccinated against COVID will reduce your risk of serious illness or hospitalization according to the CDC.

UPLOAD your vaccine information into your Patient Portal TODAY so it is in your Student Health Center records. View Video

Still need your vaccine? The SHC is offering the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine or you may contact local pharmacies for Moderna or Pfizer or use the vaccine locator.
