Now open for public walk-ins: Reid Health and IU East are partnering to offer a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for campus, community

In an effort to get the COVID-19 vaccine to as many people as possible in the Indiana University East campus community, the on-campus clinic is now open to the public to walk-in and receive the first dose of the vaccine. This includes IU East faculty, staff, students, members of their family and friends, and the public.

Reid Health and Indiana University East are partnering to offer the COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 8, at the Student Events Center (SEC). Parking will be available at the SEC and the Whitewater Parking lot. Those participating in the clinic should plan to also receive their second dose on Thursday, April 29, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the same location.

Reid Health, IU East and Ivy Tech Community College are working in collaboration with the Indiana Department of Health to provide the vaccinations. The Pfizer vaccine will be distributed. Reid Health will administer and operate the clinics. The IU East School of Nursing and Health Sciences and Ivy Tech School of Nursing will provide staffing by nursing students and faculty.

Walk-in participants will need to bring identification to the clinic in order to receive the vaccine. Anyone who has pre-registered for an appointment should plan to arrive at their scheduled time.

Any faculty, staff or students or walk-in participants are invited to attend the on-campus clinic. This includes those who do not live in Indiana.

Anyone who has previously received a COVID-19 vaccination – either one dose or two doses – will not need to register for the vaccination offered at IU East. It is advised for faculty, staff and students who have received their first dose of a vaccination to return to the same site location for the second dose.
