Ahead of the start of the fall semester, Michigan State University and the Ingham County Health Department are hosting a COVID-19 vaccine and booster clinic for students and the greater Lansing region on Aug. 31 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Breslin Center. This will be the eleventh time the two organizations have joined together to protect the health of the community through COVID-19 vaccinations.
“I am proud of our continued partnership with the Ingham County Health Department” said Norman Beauchamp Jr., executive vice president for health sciences. “Through the most challenging times, we have partnered to provide the resources our students, staff, faculty and community seek to maintain health and safety.”
“Ingham County Health Department is thrilled to work with Michigan State University again and provide COVID-19 vaccines to students and the surrounding community,” said Linda Vail, Ingham County Health Officer. “I encourage everyone to stay up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines as students begin to return to school.”
In addition to providing vaccinations and boosters to new and returning students, the August clinic also will offer first, second, and booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for other members of the community ages six months and older.
For those attending the vaccination clinic, complimentary parking will be available in Lot 63 of the Breslin Center, off of Harrison Road. Individuals will enter the Breslin Center through the Hall of History entrance located at the southeast corner of the building. Individuals should bring their COVID-19 vaccination record card and insurance card with them to their appointment, if possible.
Appointments are strongly encouraged; however walk-ins will be accommodated when possible. The community can register for a vaccination appointment here. For questions or assistance in scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment, please contact the ICHD COVID-19 Vaccine Hotline at 517-887-4623.
