BVU Holding Vaccine Clinic For Faculty, Staff, Students

April 14, 2021 1:02pm

Upon receiving 150 doses of Moderna COVID vaccine this week, Buena Vista University has organized a vaccination clinic to be held this Friday at the University.

BVU established a prioritization for faculty and staff, and extended the opportunity to students as well. Employees who haven't received a vaccination are able to make an appointment with BVU Health Services. Shots will be administered on a first-come, first-serve basis based on appointments scheduled.

The Moderna vaccine, which requires a four week window between doses, may not be optimum for all students, as many depart from campus at the close of the academic year in three weeks. However, student-athletes and other BVU students who will remain on campus through mid-May, as well as local students, will be able to receive both Moderna doses through Health Services.

BVU Health Services will work with those students to set up the second vaccination appointment in four weeks. BVU will continue to keep the campus community updated on vaccine availability and other COVID-19 news.
