COVID vaccinations are continuing and anyone who is eligible is encouraged to be vaccinated as doses and timelines allow. These efforts are reassuring as more Bearkats become fully vaccinated, our campus becomes safer. Today, however, we still need to remain vigilant. The COVID Work Group will monitor and actively review all aspects of our plan in the upcoming months as we look forward to a greater state of normalcy this summer and fall.
With only two weeks to go, we can do this. Let’s finish strong so we can return strong.
Can I still get a vaccine before I leave for the summer?
Yes! We encourage all Bearkats to get vaccinated before the summer break. SHSU Physicians, located at 690 S Loop 336 W, Suite 200, Conroe, currently offers the Moderna (two dose) vaccinations. For information, call 936.307.0267 or visit the SHSU Physicians website. The Walker County COVID-19 Vaccination Scheduler Application can also help you find a vaccine near you.
COVID Q & A
Q: I received the J&J Vaccine. What should I be aware of?
A: According to the CDC, if you received the Johnson & Johnson Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, your risk of having a blood clot is very low and that risk will decrease over time.
