On-Campus COVID-19 vaccine clinic on April 7

Dear Campus Community:

Due to low employee enrollment, the COVID-19 vaccine clinic scheduled for Wednesday, April 7, was opened to include Truman students as well.

Any member of the Truman community still wishing to take advantage of this opportunity to receive the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine must complete the two steps below to be fully registered by noon today.

Hy-Vee will also have a limited number of Pfizer vaccine doses available on the day of the clinic. If employees prefer to receive that vaccine, please register for the clinic and indicate your preference to receive the Pfizer vaccine at the time of check-in on April 7.

To register:

  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 Tuesday, April 6.
  2. Truman students and 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. Anyone needing assistance with registration should contact Human Resources.

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

Brenda Higgins, Associate VP for Student Health & Wellness.
