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.

Beginning October 7th, MSU will again be operating an appointment-based Moderna bivalent booster clinic every Friday from noon - 3 pm for current MSU students, faculty, and staff. 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.).
