University to begin administering vaccines to students April 8
Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, March 30, 2021
In an email Tuesday, the University announced undergraduate, graduate and professional students would be able to receive the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine from Thursday, April 8 to Thursday, April 15.
The first doses of the vaccine will be distributed in the span of one week at the Compton Family Ice Arena, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 7 p.m.
According to the Vaccine Administration Team (VAT), an email with a link will be sent to students soon to sign up for their first vaccination appointment.
At the vaccination center, students will be able to schedule another appointment to receive the second dose exactly three weeks after their first dose, between Thursday, April 29 and Thursday, May 6.
The team also encouraged Notre Dame students to use the on-campus vaccination site and to cancel other vaccination appointments they might have.
“This will help to free up any vaccination capacity in the local community for members who may be in need,” the email said.
Students who receive their first dose elsewhere in the community will not be able to receive the second dose at the on-campus site.
