Vaccine Availability

Pfizer-BioNTech clinic on Friday, Oct. 22

On Friday, Oct. 22, Montana State University will host a free, walk-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic on the Centennial Mall near Montana Hall from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Students, faculty and staff are welcome to receive first or second doses of the FDA-approved Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Booster doses will also be available to those who are eligible. The clinic will return three weeks later on Friday, Nov. 12, to administer second doses of the vaccine.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration gave its full and final approval to the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine on Aug. 23, noting that the vaccine has met the agency’s rigorous scientific standards.

Moderna clinics

MSU University Health Partners has the two-dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccine available. Vaccine clinics will be held at MSU on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

If you are an MSU student, faculty, or staff member who is 18 years or older and would like to be vaccinated against COVID-19, please log into this website using your MSU NetID and password: Once logged in, fill out the form confirming your interest in becoming vaccinated. You should then receive an email within 48 hours containing a link to sign up for a specific appointment time and date at the next available clinic. Do not share that link with others - it is only valid for one user.

Important reminder on second-dose Moderna vaccination: If you are signing up for your second dose of Moderna, please be sure to sign up for an appointment four weeks after your first dose. CDC states that it is acceptable to receive your second dose 24-42 days following your first dose, but 28 days (four weeks) is optimal. Please wait to submit the form above until at least three weeks since your first dose.

If you have any difficulty filling out the form or have questions about vaccine appointments, please call 406-994-3798.
