From the desk of Bill Stackman, vice chancellor for student affairs
I’m writing to remind you that you are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
You have an opportunity this weekend to easily get vaccinated. MU Health Care will be offering Pfizer and Moderna vaccines April 15–17 at Faurot Field with second doses May 6–8. Make your appointment here.
If you are unable to schedule your shot for this weekend, VaccineFinder can help you find other clinics and pharmacies with available appointments. Additional vaccine guidance is always available at our Show Me Renewal website.
Please bear in mind that these vaccines require two doses administered 21–28 days apart. Be mindful of your first shot date, especially if it is in Columbia, as you will receive the second shot from the same location.
It’s very important to remember to bring your student ID with you when you go to get your shot.
Plan to wait at the vaccination site for 15 minutes to make sure you’re not having a reaction to the vaccine and watch your symptoms carefully for the following 24 hours.
I’m proud of the way you’ve supported one another this year and I know you’ll continue to do so for the remainder of the semester.

After receiving the vaccine
Some people may experience symptoms after receiving the vaccine. Planning for rest periods after receiving the vaccine is a good idea.
The vaccines authorized by the Food and Drug Administration have gone through all of the same steps and requirements as every other vaccine. Read more.
