CCU approved to administer Moderna vaccinations
SHS’s first Moderna vaccine administration day is scheduled for Thursday, July 29. CCU students, faculty, and staff who would like to get vaccinated on campus are asked to call SHS at 843-349-6543 to schedule an appointment. Individuals who visit SHS are required to wear a face covering/mask, over nose and mouth, at all times while inside the building.
The University does not mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for its students, faculty, and staff.
“Getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a choice,” said Caesar C. Ross III, CCU’s director of Student Health Services. “The student health team is an on-campus resource to get questions answered about the COVID-19 Moderna vaccinations available to students, faculty, and staff. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 vaccines continue to be very effective at preventing severe disease, hospitalizations, and death. We are encouraging everyone to join efforts to protect the health and well-being of the University community as well as address the growing pandemic among the unvaccinated.”
In August, the University will launch a comprehensive program, which will include incentives, to encourage students to be fully vaccinated. CCU’s Fall 2021 semester begins Wednesday, Aug. 18.
