Beginning Thursday, COVID vaccines are coming to you. On May 20, the first of a summerlong series of vaccine clinics will be held on multiple Johns Hopkins campuses for faculty, staff, students, and contractors affiliated with the university.
"These convenient clinics will provide an easy way to get vaccinated," says Jane Schlegel, vice president and chief administrative officer of JHU. "We encourage everyone to get vaccinated, in our continued effort to ensure the good health and safety of our university community."
Clinics will be scheduled weekly, and vaccinations are free. Staff can use COVID-19 vaccine leave for time off while they receive or recover from the vaccination.
Check the Upcoming JHU Vaccine Clinic webpage for the current schedule and to register for an upcoming event. Note that some clinics require pre-registration and allow you to select the time slot that works best for you, while others allow walk-ins; this is specified next to each time on the website.
Anyone with questions about the vaccines is encouraged to attend the virtual Vaccine Information Town Hall that will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19. Panelists will address topics such as vaccine safety and efficacy, JHU policy, and common misinformation.
