GLASSBORO, N.J. — Beginning June 17, Rowan University will make COVID-19 vaccines available at the Chamberlain Student Center. The vaccines will be available to students, faculty, and the public between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily until July 22.

Rowan’s vaccine clinic will feature the Pfizer model, which requires two doses three weeks apart, and the Johnson & Johnson, which at the moment only requires one dose to provide adequate coverage against the virus.

All New Jersey residents aged 12 and older are eligible to get their shot. Those younger than 18 are required to attend the COVID-19 vaccine clinic with a parent or guardian, and they can only receive the Pfizer vaccine model.

Those who wish to make an appointment for one of Rowan’s COVID-19 vaccine clinics can do so here. However, walk-ins will also be accepted at Rowan’s clinics.

Now is a perfect time to get vaccinated, as supply issues that were a concern at the beginning of New Jersey’s COVID-19 vaccination effort seem to be a distant memory. The state has fully reopened following Governor Phil Murphy’s lift of the state’s public health emergency.

Students enrolling at Rowan in the fall are required to be vaccinated in order to attend in-person classes. Students have until August 7 to upload their vaccination card to the school’s portal.
