Vaccinations Available on Campus

#BradleyUnite - GET VACCINATED ON CAMPUS

Students may now take advantage of vaccination clinics Monday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 13 in the Markin Center. We have 1,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine available, thanks to the Peoria City/County Health Department. Appointments are required. Please be aware you are required to wait at least 15 minutes after receiving your vaccination. Plan on 30 minutes for your appointment from start to finish.

To register for a vaccine appointment, go to https://bucovidvaccine.youcanbook.me. You will need your Bradley ID to enter Markin.

The Markin Center Performance Court, MAC court and Court #3 will be closed from 7 a.m., April 12, to 5:30 p.m., April 13, in order to accommodate the clinics.

Please remember, if you are currently in quarantine or isolation, you are not able to come to the vaccination clinic. If you have recently had COVID-19, your symptoms must be resolved for 2 weeks prior to being vaccinated.

If you already scheduled your first vaccination elsewhere and would like to schedule one on-campus, please make sure to cancel any other appointments (after securing a new appointment) to allow others in the community to use the spot. Those already awaiting a second dose of the Moderna vaccine are not allowed to schedule an appointment to receive that second dose through Bradley University.

The Moderna vaccine requires a second dose to be administered 28 days after the first. Since our final exam period is four weeks from now, we will adjust the days/times of the clinics to accommodate those schedules. Scheduling for the second dose will be sent out as we get closer to those dates. Please consider your final exam schedule when scheduling your second dose; you might want to consider getting it after your finals are complete. While important, a vaccination is not an excuse for missing or rescheduling a class or final exam.

Priority is being given to students to receive the vaccine due to the close proximity to each other in their living arrangements. If there are additional doses available, they will be made available to faculty and staff.

Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccines by visiting the CDC website. Specifically, you can learn more about the Moderna vaccine here.

The State of Illinois and the Peoria region continue to see increases in the number of COVID-19 cases. Bradley is not immune to these challenges and has seen a steady number of positive cases. Please continue to do your part throughout the remainder of the semester: physically distance, wear a mask, use proper handwashing techniques, participate in campus surveillance testing and continue following the campus requirements.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
