The October Beaver Booster Clinic is happening Nov. 15-17, noon to 4 p.m. in the Memorial Union room 62. This Clinic is free and open to the public, giving everyone the chance to come in and get a booster shot to protect against COVID-19.

No insurance cards or ID are required; however, participants should bring their vaccination card with them. This is a walk-up clinic, so no appointments are needed. 

Individuals interested should review their eligibility on the CDC vaccination website. It’s  recommended that individuals wait at least two months since their last COVID-19 vaccine, or  booster before getting the new booster. 

The OSU clinic will be providing the Pfizer booster to individuals over the age of 12.  

Getting a booster this fall is an important step we can take as members of the OSU community to help protect ourselves and those around us,” said Jenny Haubenreiser, senior director for Community Health and Well-Being at OSU. “This is particularly important as we come back together for the new academic year.” 

This clinic is provided by the Oregon Health Authority in partnership with the county health  departments. For more information on the booster clinic visit the Beaver Booster Clinic website.
