Albertus Magnus College Requiring COVID Vaccination for Fall

Providing Free Mobile Vaccination Clinic in Partnership With Griffin Health

New Haven, Conn., June 29, 2021 –  Albertus Magnus College is requiring all students, faculty, and staff who will be on campus this fall to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  A message from President Marc M. Camille to the Albertus Community went out today, stating that the decision was based on input from the COVID-19 Workgroup and the latest federal and state guidance and science.

In order to make it easier for students, faculty, staff, and the neighboring communities to get their free COVID shots, Albertus is partnering with Griffin Health to bring a mobile vaccination clinic to campus throughout the summer.  The highly visible yellow Vaccination Vans, provided by the Connecticut Department of Public health and run by Griffin Health, will be parked at the Hubert Campus Center on the following dates:

Wednesday, June 30 from 1 pm to 5 pm
Wednesday, July 7 from 8 am to 1 pm
Saturday, July 17 from 10 am to 2 pm
Wednesday, July 21 from 1 pm to 5 pm
Wednesday, July 28 from 8 am to 1 pm and
Saturday, August 7 from 10 am to 2 pm

Walk-ins are welcome, no appointment necessary.  Those attending are asked to bring a health insurance card and photo ID if available, but it is not necessary.  No one will be turned away for lack of insurance or ID.  Both the Pfizer two-shot vaccine for ages 12 and up; and Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccines for those ages 18 and older, will be available.  

More information about Albertus’ COVID-19 preparations is available on our website.
