Vaccination clinic on SOU campus

COVID, flu vaccination offered on SOU campus

A free vaccination clinic for SOU employees and family members seeking either flu shots or COVID-19 boosters will be held next Thursday, Dec. 16, in the Rogue River Room of the Stevenson Union. Face coverings will be required.

Those interested in receiving any of the vaccinations at next week’s clinic are asked to complete this questionnaire by Wednesday, Dec. 8, to help organizers assess interest and ensure adequate supplies and staffing at the event.

COVID vaccinations and boosters from both Moderna and Johnson & Johnson will be available, with no insurance coverage required, for those over age 18 who can show their COVID-19 vaccination cards. The Pfizer vaccine will not be available.

Flu shots will be offered to all who are age 3 or older and have insurance cards from Providence Choice, Providence Statewide or Kaiser. Moda and other forms of health insurance will not be accepted.

The clinic is a collaborative effort of SOU’s Human Resources and Environmental Health and Safety departments, and Wellness 2000, a corporate wellness vendor in Medford. SOU continues to urge students, employees and their families to be cautious in social interactions and to take reasonable steps to ensure their safety, particularly with the omicron variant emerging quickly across the U.S. and the flu season building.

For those unable to attend the Dec. 16 clinic, another option for COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters is a drive-through clinic at the Jackson County Expo from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays and from noon to 6 p.m. each Monday through Thursday. No appointment is needed, vaccinations are free and the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are available. Flu shots are not available at the Expo.
