#VaxUpMarquette | Vaccines available on campus, April 21

Currently in Wisconsin, everyone ages 16 and over are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. The Medical Clinic will host a COVID-19 vaccine clinic on campus in the AMU, Lunda Room on Wednesday, April 21, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The Moderna vaccine will be administered. Those who had their appointments canceled last week due to the FDA Johnson & Johnson vaccine pause were given priority registration. At this time, there are some slots still open. Sign up for an appointment.

After your appointment you will receive an email prompting you to schedule your second dose. Your second dose will be administered on Thursday, May 20, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. If you are unable to schedule your second dose on May 20, please DO NOT schedule your first dose.

The Marquette Medical Clinic hopes to host regular vaccine clinics, however spots tend to fill quickly. If you cannot get an appointment on-campus, there are various vaccination sites in the Milwaukee area:

  • Vaccines appointments (scheduled or walk-in) are available at the Wisconsin Center, which is walking distance from campus. Appointments are also available at North Division and South Division High Schools. For more information and registration, visit milwaukee.gov/covidvax or by calling (414) 286-6800
  • See more vaccination sites near you.

Important reminders:

  • The State of Wisconsin determines vaccine eligibility criteria. More information on the state’s eligibility requirements is available online.
  • You must get both doses at the same facility
    If you get your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine off campus, you cannot get your second dose at Marquette. Second doses are automatically allocated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services to the vaccination site that provided your first dose. If you received your dose elsewhere, including out of state, that site is responsible for your second dose.
  • Once fully vaccinated, you should still wear your mask, practice social distancing, avoid crowds, wash your hands often and complete the daily COVID Cheq.
    Please remember that completing the daily COVID Cheq survey remains a key mitigation tool for campus. Per the CDC guidelines, fully vaccinated people should still watch for symptoms of COVID-19, especially following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19. If symptoms develop, all people – regardless of vaccination status – should isolate and be clinically evaluated for COVID-19.
