Reminder: Illinois Tech On-Campus Vaccination Event: Saturday, May 22 in Hermann Hall

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,

As a reminder, Howard Brown Health will be returning to campus to provide first- and second-dose vaccination appointments on Saturday, May 22 from 8 a.m.–2:55 p.m. in Hermann Hall.

These appointments will be open to all students, faculty, and staff, and our neighbors throughout the Bronzeville community. We strongly encourage the entire Illinois Tech community to sign up here, if they have not already scheduled a vaccination appointment through another provider.

In partnership with State Senator Mattie Hunter, State Representative Lamont Robinson, State Representative Kam Buckner, and Alderman Pat Dowell, Howard Brown Health will be providing Moderna vaccines as either a first or second dose.

Individuals may seek to book a second-dose appointment through other providers if the campus vaccination appointments are no longer convenient. Students, faculty, and staff who live locally will also have the flexibility to schedule a second-dose appointment at another Howard Brown Health facility if their return to campus date is not convenient.

Please note that the first doses administered at last month’s campus vaccination event were also Moderna, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends that “both doses of the series should be completed with the same product.” For questions regarding the safety and efficacy of any of the vaccines, please visit the CDC’s vaccine page.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Alan W. Cramb
