COVID-19 vaccination (primary and boosters):
On September 1st, 2022, CDC/ACIP authorized two boosters containing the original COVID-19
strain plus Omicron variants (Moderna and Pfizer mRNA "bivalent" vaccines) for all
persons age 12 or older who are at least 2 months from their most recent COVID immunization.
In addition, if you have been ill with COVID-19 recently, CDC recommends waiting 3
months since your infection before getting the bivalent booster. To determine which
vaccine or booster you should receive, please visit the CDC Vaccines for COVID-19 website.
From Oct 7 - Dec 9, 2023, MSU offered appointment-based Moderna bivalent boosters at vaccine clinics every Friday from noon - 3 pm for MSU students, faculty, and staff. We will not be offering boosters over winter break. Please check back in January 2023 to see if there has been sufficient demand for us to open Spring semester vaccine clinics.

Note - on the webpage this link opens (PrepMod), you do not need to enter any search information, just scroll down to any available MSU clinic.If there is one listed on a future date, please click on "Sign Up for a COVID-19 Vaccination" and you will be able to choose any available time slot. If none are left for that date, please select the next available date. Please bring your active MSU ID and your COVID vaccination card to the booster clinic at your appointment time. The clinic is in the same location as the past two years: the Bobcat Grill area in the basement of the SUB, adjacent to the Allen Yarnell Center for Student Success and across the hall from the SUB Rec Center (bowling alley, pool tables, etc.).
If you need a primary series vaccine or need a bivalent booster (Moderna or Pfizer) during periods we are not offering booster vaccine clinics, please visit vaccines.gov to find a vaccination site near you.
