Per an Oct. 22 news release, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) supports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendation that certain populations who have increased risk of exposure to or transmission of COVID-19 receive a booster shot of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines at least six months after having received their second dose of either vaccine, and that individuals age 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine receive a booster dose at least two months after their primary vaccine dose.
See the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website for more information on eligible populations for receiving a COVID-19 vaccine booster.
The Marquette University Medical Clinic is not distributing COVID-19 booster shots. Those interested in receiving a COVID-19 booster shot can register online to schedule their booster shot at a local health department, pharmacy or other location.
Individuals who do receive a COVID-19 booster dose are encouraged to update their immunization record with the date of the booster dose and upload a copy of their updated vaccination card here: www.mymedicalclinic.mu.edu.
The Marquette University Medical Clinic continues to focus on distributing the primary COVID-19 vaccine series and seasonal flu vaccination. Injectable influenza vaccinations are available to students, faculty, staff and dependents today, Thursday, Oct. 28, until 3 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room on a walk-in basis. After today, flu vaccination is available by appointment at the Medical Clinic, while supplies last. The campus community is urged to receive the vaccination, not only as a way to stay healthy during the flu season, but to help alleviate the burden on health care providers in light of COVID-19.
