June 2: COVID-19 vaccine drive-thru operation to close

Dear Spartans,

For the past six months, the Ingham County Health Department’s drive-thru mass vaccination clinic at the MSU Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education has highlighted the remarkable benefits of community partnership in times of need. That said, we knew this operation would not be needed indefinitely.

Our partnership with the Ingham County Health Department to operate this clinic will be winding down over the next several days, ending June 8. Across the state, vaccination efforts are transitioning to more personalized and specialized distribution. Health departments and vaccine providers are now working to meet individuals in smaller settings within communities.

While this operation will be closing, the MSU Health Care Pharmacy will continue being MSU’s source for safe and effective COVID-19 vaccinations throughout the summer and into the fall. MSU students, employees, retirees, and patients can register for an appointment Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

We are incredibly proud of the partnership with the Ingham County Health Department and other community organizations that made this operation possible. We also want to thank the many MSU employees and volunteers for their hard work supporting the effort.

As we continue working to keep our community safe, we again want to encourage you to get vaccinated if you haven’t already. Sign-up information for MSU Health Care and other providers is available on the Together We Will website. Receiving a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is the quickest way to get back to a more typical fall semester.

 

Thank you,
