If you’re scheduled for your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, please do your best to keep your appointment. Also, please bring your vaccination card to your appointment.

Vaccines are being distributed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. or as long as supplies are available each day. Individuals are served on a first-come, first-served, walk-up basis. When coming to the West Campus for the vaccine, please remember to use the North entrance (the entrance nearest Wawa).
