Eastern Kentucky University announced that it has partnered with Team Kentucky and Wild Health to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at the vaccination site located at the EKU Perkins Building with eligibility for students to receive the vaccine on Sunday, March 28, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

According to the email to students on March 25, free COVID-19 testing will also be offered if students would like to utilize that resource.

According to Tanlee Wasson, vice president of Student Success, Engagement & Opportunity, the vaccine is free and the clinic is open to all members of the public ages 16 and over (18 and under must have permission from a parent or guardian).

Students are encouraged to sign up for appointments as soon as possible because appointments will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. 

“If you do not see any available appointments, it means the clinic schedule has been filled. If you are vaccinated at this clinic, you will receive an appointment through Wild Health for your second dose in 3 weeks. We will share future on-campus vaccination opportunities if/when they become available,” Wasson said.
