The Georgia Department of Public Health has designated Kennesaw State University as a distribution site to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to all students, faculty, and staff. KSU has partnered with Wellstar Health System to give the vaccinations to our campus population. The Student Health Services clinic located at 3215 Campus Loop Road is administering the Pfizer vaccine on a walk-in basis, Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM.
If you would like to receive the first dose, second dose or booster doses of Pfizer, please visit the Student Health Services clinic located at 3215 Campus Loop Road, Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Walk-ins are welcome; no appointment is needed.
Vaccine Update as of May 23, 2022
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has authorized that people ages 12 years and older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised can choose to receive a first booster/fourth dose of an mRNA vaccine to increase their protection against severe disease from COVID-19. The following populations are eligible to receive a second booster:
- Individuals 50 years of age or older who received their first booster/fourth dose at least 4 months ago
- Individuals 12 years of age or older who are moderately or severely immunocompromised, and received their first booster/fourth dose at least 4 months ago
- Individuals 18 years of age or older who received 2 doses of J&J/Janssen vaccine at least 4 months ago
KSU has begun administering the second booster for students and employees.
A first booster dose is recommended for all individuals age 18 years and older at least six months after receiving their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. Individuals 18 years and older who received the J&J vaccine are encouraged to receive a booster dose at least two months after receiving the initial dose.
J&J and Moderna are currently out of stock at KSU; therefore, Pfizer is primarily being administered on campus at this time. The FDA and CDC have also authorized “mix and match” booster doses, which means you may receive a Pfizer booster dose on campus, regardless of which vaccine type you received originally.
If you would like to receive a Pfizer booster, please visit the Student Health Services clinic located at 3215 Campus Loop Road, Monday through Friday between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Walk-ins are welcome; no appointment is needed.
Please bring your KSU ID, insurance card and Vaccination Record Card with you. Without these documents, you will not be able to receive your booster.
The vaccines are a critical tool to help "Protect the Nest," and we strongly encourage everyone to take this step to advance the health and safety of our campus community. If you have additional questions after reviewing the FAQ, email email@example.com.
