University announces upcoming flu and COVID vaccine clinics across all campuses

The University announced on Sept. 8 that flu and COVID vaccine clinics will be available this fall across all three campuses. 

On Sept. 28 and Nov. 9, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., students and Seton Hall staff can stop by Bethany Hall, Rooms B and C, at the South Orange campus. A clinic for the Law School location will be announced soon with a separate link to register. 

Additionally, Health Services will provide both flu and COVID vaccines this fall once they become available. Appointments can be made online via the student health portal or by calling Health Services at (973) 761-9175. 

“We know that more changes may come, so we continue to monitor public and University health statistics, along with government guidance,” said the Health Intervention and Communication Team regarding the announcement.

The Novavax vaccine, which has received Emergency Use Authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, will be available to students “who wish to protect themselves and others from COVID using traditional technology that has been in use for over 30 years,” the announcement said. 

For those who wish to obtain greater protection against newer strains of COVID, the new Moderna (MRNA) bivalent booster will be available to those who have completed their primary series of vaccination with either Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson. 

Health Services is also currently offering appointments to discuss concerns regarding monkeypox, along with testing when available and appropriate. 

There are currently 647 probable and confirmed monkeypox cases in New Jersey, with vaccines being provided to those who have been exposed or are at high risk, according to New Jersey’s Department of Health.
