Regis College continued its efforts to protect the campus community from COVID-19 by hosting its second vaccine clinic of the year this past Friday. More than 60 students, faculty, and staff came through the gym to receive either their first or second dose of Pfizer.
“I’m grateful we are able to offer this to our community,” said Tammi Magazzu, associate dean and director of the Regis College Center for Health and Wellness. “And my hope is we can hold another clinic in June.”
The university earlier in May announced all students, faculty, and staff who will be on campus for the fall 2021 semester must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by August 16, except for those who have certain medical or religious exemptions. And while that requirement may be the main reason people came to the clinic, many of them also said this is a way to return to a level of normalcy.
“For me, getting vaccinated is important so we can get back to normal,” said Ahnasia Mckinney ‘24. “I’m planning on visiting my grandparents this summer.”
Protecting others is also why incoming student Alyssa Schuurman ‘25, got her vaccine. “I want people around me to feel safe.”
All members of the Regis community can now upload their vaccine records through the CoVerfied app under the Report tab, including a photo of your vaccine card. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Regis successfully controlled the spread of COVID-19 on campus this spring semester with just 61 positive cases out of more than 20,000 tests conducted, and no disruption to campus activities or in-person classes. More information about the university’s COVID-19 response and the vaccine requirement.
