Why

Vaccines are effective at protecting people from getting severely ill from COVID-19. Boosters are an effective way to help the body maintain its immune response. The CDC has more information about vaccines and boosters.

Additional Considerations

  • Boosters are required for in-person attendance during spring semester. Unless you have filed for an exemption, everyone needs to get boosted.
  • Bring your vaccination card so it can be updated. Once you get a booster, students will need to submit their updated status to the Medicat portal. Employees need to submit their updated status via the HR benefits portal.
  • You may experience mild discomfort and side effects after getting boosted. Learn more about what to expect from the CDC. Plan your appointment with this in mind.
  • If you are not yet eligible for a booster, make a note that Gonzaga is planning booster clinics for February and March as well.
  • At this time, appointments are limited strictly to Gonzaga employees and students.

We are grateful to the Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD) for their assistance in making these clinics possible.

Spring 2021 Vaccine Clinics 

During the spring of 2021, Gonzaga partnered with local health care entities to offer free, on-campus COVID-19 vaccination clinics. The University worked with the Spokane Regional Health District and local healthcare organizations that served over 8,000 community members in the Spokane area as well as GU students, faculty, and staff.

The clinics were an important way for us, as a University, to live out our mission of being people for and with others who are committed to social justice and service for the common good. Gonzaga nursing students participated in administering vaccines and numerous students, faculty and staff volunteered their time to work at the clinics. 

Information bout those clinics is archived below, for historical reference.
