After several months of preparing for your return in the fall, we have reached a crossroads. The concerning rise of the Delta variant—which is more infectious and more potent than other forms of COVID-19—is threatening our opportunities for more in-person experiences. To combat this, it is critical for you to get vaccinated as soon as possible. 

Currently, Butte County is under 40% fully vaccinated, which makes it even more important that you are vaccinated when you return in the fall. The higher our vaccination rates, the lower our risk for spreading and contracting the virus. With that in mind, Chico State will host its next on-campus COVID-19 vaccine clinic in the Bell Memorial Union (BMU) Auditorium from 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 13. The clinic will offer first and second doses of Pfizer and the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine.  

Unlike previous on-campus clinics, you don’t need to schedule an appointment time slot. You can simply arrive at a time that works best for you. However, please register online so we can anticipate demand and have ample staffing. 

The clinic, operated by Rite Aid pharmacy, is open to the entire community, including all University students and employees, and their friends, families, and colleagues. The clinic is open to children over the age of 12 with parental consent.  

If you've already been fully vaccinated, thank you! If not, we hope to see you at the clinic, maybe with a friend or family member! Please encourage loved ones who haven’t yet gotten vaccinated to do so, and use this link to sign them up.  

For those unable to come to campus, regional providers are offering multiple no-appointment opportunities to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Go to MyTurn.ca.gov to sign up at a vaccine site in your area or go to any Rite Aid pharmacy. If you have questions or need more information about the clinic, please contact Mary Wallmark at mwallmark@csuchico.edu

We’ve made so much progress over the last few months, let’s keep it going. To keep things closer to normal, we need to get those vaccines in arms!
