Please read the important information below from SVSU, this information is being passed on to you as a courtesy, it is not mandatory, but is available to you if you are interested.
Saginaw Valley State University will host vaccination clinics on campus in partnership with Meijer Pharmacy where high school students16 & Up in the Great Lakes Bay Region will be eligible to receive the vaccine. Meijer Pharmacy will be administering the Pfizer vaccine on campus April 19th, 21st, and 23rd, tentatively scheduled for 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Pfizer vaccine requires two doses for a completed series, with 21 days between the first and second shot. Accordingly, second doses of the vaccine will be administered May 10th, 12th, and 14th. Two weeks after receiving their second dose, students will have maximum protection. Good news indeed!
On behalf of the College of Education at SVSU and in recognition of your partnership with us, I am inviting all students 16 & up in your school district to participate in the vaccine clinics hosted by SVSU. In order to be vaccinated, minors will need to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Please mark your calendars!
Through vaccinations and ongoing adherence to public health protocols, together we are going to turn the corner on this dangerous virus and renew hope for a safer (and more normal) school environment for all.
