Seton Hall to host vaccine clinic on South Orange campus

Seton Hall will host a vaccine clinic on its South Orange campus on Wednesday, according to an email from the Health Intervention and Communication Team (HICT).

Health Services and RWJBarnabas Health’s Clara Maas Medical Center will administer first doses of the Moderna vaccine from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Richard and Sheila Regan Fieldhouse. 

According to the HICT, Clara Maas’ guidelines require anyone getting the first shot to receive their second dose on campus on May 26 — a week after final exams end.

“We recognize that some students may need to stay in the area to access the second dose,” University Spokesperson Laurie Pine said. “Student requests will be reviewed on an individual basis and we will do our best to meet all needs.”

All Seton Hall students, faculty, staff, administrators and their families will be eligible for vaccines at the clinic, according to the HICT, which adds that “If there is capacity, we may open eligibility further.”

“If supply exceeds demand, we are pleased to provide this service to our local neighbors and are working with the South Orange Department of Health to do so,” Pine said.

Anyone receiving the vaccine must bring ID and insurance information to the site fifteen minutes before their scheduled appointment, the HICT email said.

According to the CDC, New Jersey has administered 6.9 million doses of the vaccine.
