COVID-19 Booster Clinics On Campus Dec. 8 and 9

Announced: November 29, 2021

To: Campus Community
From: Pandemic Management Team

Earlier this month, the CDC expanded eligibility for COVID-19 booster shots to anyone 18 or older who:

  • Received their second shot of either Pfizer or Moderna more than five months ago.
  • Received their single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine more than two months ago.

To make it convenient for students and employees and help keep our campus as safe as possible, Chico State has partnered with Rite Aid to offer on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinics on December 8 and 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Bell Memorial Union, Room 203. 
The clinic is open to the public and Chico State students and employees are encouraged to bring their friends and family. 

Recipients will be allowed to “mix and match,” meaning individuals can now choose a different vaccine than their original shot(s). In addition to boosters, the clinic will also provide Pfizer and Moderna first and second doses for anyone who isn’t yet fully vaccinated. 
COVID-19 vaccines can prevent hospitalization and serious illness and are essential for preventing widespread outbreaks within our community. But research suggests protection begins to fade about six months after vaccination. That’s why Chico State is encouraging everyone to get a booster shot as soon as they are eligible.

Boosters are not part of the CSU’s Vaccination Policy

As of right now, the CSU is not requiring eligible employees or students to get booster shots. The CSU currently considers two doses for Pfizer and Moderna and one dose for Johnson & Johnson as fully vaccinated.

Because of this, Chico State is not requiring employees or students who get a COVID-19 booster to update their self-certification status. We ask that you don’t until further notice, as it will complicate our verification processes for newly enrolled students.
If you are unable to attend an on-campus clinic, you can use to find a location to get a vaccine near you.
