This message was sent to the WPI community.
WPI will again collaborate with PelMeds pharmacy to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for WPI students, faculty, and staff.
Clinics will be held on campus in the Rubin Campus Center Odeum on Monday, May 24 from 9 am to 1 pm and Tuesday, May 25 from 12 pm to 4 pm. Registration information is below; walk-ins will be welcomed on a limited basis.
These clinics are open to all students, faculty, and staff who:
- received a first dose of Pfizer in the on-campus clinics held May 3 and 4; or
- received a first dose of Pfizer elsewhere; or
- would like to receive a first dose of Pfizer, keeping in mind the second dose will need to be obtained elsewhere in three weeks.
Regardless of where you receive dose 2, it should ideally be administered three to four weeks after the first. It can be administered up to six weeks after the first, but please do not delay.
It is vitally important that you keep your vaccination card and bring it to your second dose appointment, whether that is at WPI or elsewhere.
Please remember that WPI requires all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in on-campus classes and/or conducting research in on-campus labs, whether they live on campus or off, to be fully vaccinated (two weeks post their last dose) against COVID-19 by August 1, 2021. We strongly encourage faculty and staff to get vaccinated as well.
- All students must enter their vaccination information into Medicat as soon as they are fully vaccinated or by August 1, 2021 at the latest.
- Employees must enter their vaccine information into Workday by June 15, 2021 so we can monitor total vaccination levels on campus. If those numbers show a lower-than-optimal level of immunization on campus, the university may require vaccination among employees.
We will update the community as soon as possible if we are able to offer additional vaccination clinics.
