FACULTY AND STAFF: COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic On Campus for Employees

Dear Campus Community:

A COVID-19 vaccination clinic for Truman employees and Sodexo employees will be held on campus next Wednesday, April 7, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Pershing Arena.

Hy-Vee Pharmacy will administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which requires only one dose to complete the vaccination. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the receipt of the vaccine.

In order to take advantage of this opportunity, participants must complete two steps to be fully registered.

  1. All participants must complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Consent and Administration Record and return it to Human Resources, McClain Hall 101, no later than noon on Friday, April 2.
  2. Truman employees are able to schedule a vaccine appointment with their Truman login here: http://eventmanager.truman.edu/generallist.asp?department=Human+Resources. Sodexo employees must contact the Human Resources office at 660-785-4031 or stop by McClain Hall 101 to register.

Participants are not fully registered until both steps are completed.

Appointments will be available at 15-minute intervals throughout the day. All vaccine recipients will be required to wait a minimum of 15 minutes following vaccination to detect any immediate untoward reactions.

The vaccine is provided at no cost. Insurance will be billed and insurance information is REQUIRED on the Consent record. For any individual without insurance, a driver’s license or Social Security number is required. (This is a state requirement.) Regardless of insurance coverage, no vaccine recipient will be charged personally for the vaccine.

This clinic is for Truman and Sodexo employees only. Four hundred doses are expected to be available on a first-registered basis. A clinic is anticipated for students the following week.

This is a great opportunity for a convenient one-dose vaccination on our campus. If interested, please schedule your appointment and complete the attached form as soon as possible.
