YPSILANTI— Eastern Michigan University will host the final community COVID-19 vaccination clinic of the semester from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. The walk-in clinic is located in Eastern’s Student Center in Ballroom A. No advance registration is required and free parking is available in the Student Center parking lot.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations will be offered on-site and will be available to ages 12 and up. In addition to the standard COVID-19 vaccinations, first and second booster shots will be available for qualified individuals. Guests must bring their vaccine card or an image of their vaccine card on a cell phone. 

“Eastern believes that we have a commitment to serve our community on the campus and around the county, and providing these clinics is one way to show our commitment,” said Ellen Gold, assistant vice president of student affairs and dean of students. 

The clinic is offered as a part of EMU’s ongoing collaboration with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). Through this partnership, Eastern has hosted two pop-up clinics and administered over 700 vaccinations. 

“It has been a great partnership for Eastern and the State,” Gold said. “MDHHS  brings in a team of intake processors and vaccinators, and we provide the site, volunteers, and marketing of the clinics. We have developed an effective vaccination process and people that leave after getting their vaccination have been very complimentary.”
