On-campus community clinic aims to increase vaccination numbers

The University of Windsor will host an on-campus community COVID-19 vaccination clinic provided by the Community Response and Stabilization Team on Friday, Aug. 6, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Faculty of Education parking lot near the corner of California and University Ave.

Health cards are not required for the free vaccines and the clinic will be outdoors and barrier-free. First and second mRNA vaccines will be available to anyone ages 12 and up, and language support, refreshments, and free onsite parking will be available.

UWindsor president Rob Gordon said the University is delighted to provide a venue for Friday’s clinic.

“This is an important initiative, and we are inviting everyone to attend — not only members of the UWindsor community but anyone who has not yet been fully vaccinated,” he said. “We know that vaccination is our only option in fighting COVID and it’s vital that as many people as possible get their jab.”

The University recently launched the Take A Jab vaccination campaign to encourage students and others in the community not only to get into the ring and “Knock Out COVID,” but to carry the vaccination message to others in Windsor-Essex County.

The University is teaming with the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance to help students and other young people in the community get the facts and support they need to overcome vaccine hesitancy and access vaccination in the community.
