Michigan State University is launching a student only vaccine clinic beginning Friday. 3,000 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine are being made available to students by appointment only.

Mary Stout is a senior at MSU and the director of Health, Safety and Wellness for the undergraduate student government at the university. She says she’s encouraged by the university’s focus on accessibility.

“I also am really glad that they're offering, you know, rides to and from students who maybe don't have cars, and we don't have a way to get around or be able to get their vaccines, because those are definitely things that I had concerns about, like just the accessibility of vaccine,” she said.

A recent survey conducted by the National Social Norms Center at MSU found more than 80% of MSU students plan to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available to them.

Dan Olsen is the Deputy Spokesperson for MSU. He says there are 3,000 initial appointments available for the first week.

“It moves us even closer to a more typical fall semester at Michigan State University.”

Interested students must register to schedule an appointment, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
