April 10, 2021 - TIMELY INFO: COVID-19 Vaccine appointments available on NDMU campus

Dear Members of the Loyola Community,

I am pleased to share that vaccines will be available next week on the campus of Notre Dame of Maryland University, our neighbor to the North on Charles Street. If you are interested, you should go to this registration link NOW.

Vaccination Clinics at NDMU
These clinics are co-sponsored by Notre Dame of Maryland University’s School of Pharmacy and Safeway Pharmacies. Our Loyola community is invited to register before this information is added to the state vaccination websites later today, so I encourage you to register as soon as you receive this message. The clinics will be held in Notre Dame’s Marion Burk Knott Sports Complex from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13, Wednesday, April 14, Thursday, April 15, and Sunday, April 18. You will need to bring your driver’s license or another form of state identification and your insurance card if you have one, and you will receive the Pfizer vaccine. All individuals 16 and older are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine in Maryland.

REGISTER NOW USING THIS LINK.

After you register, you will receive a confirmation with instructions to print three documents. Please be sure to complete the consent form PRIOR to arrival for your appointment and bring it with you to the appointment (also attached here for your convenience).

Please also bring your driver’s license and your medical insurance card. If you do not have a driver’s license, please bring your University ID card or other form of state-issued ID. Please note if you are an out-of-state student, you still must receive your second dose in Maryland. You cannot get your second dose out of state.

We continue to pursue other opportunities for members of our community to be vaccinated, and I will share those details when they are available. But this is timely and convenient. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Marylou Yam, president of Notre Dame, for extending this invitation specifically to our community.

Why should you get vaccinated?
Being vaccinated protects you and others. In addition, Loyola students who are fully vaccinated no longer need to participate in Campus Assessment and Restriction Periods when they are implemented on campus and in Loyola housing. All individuals who are fully vaccinated (two weeks after the last dose) do not need to quarantine if exposed to COVID-19 unless they become symptomatic.

I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the chance to receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it is available to you.  Students, if you need to miss class time to attend your vaccine appointment, please let your professor know.

Thank you for taking this step for your health and the health of our Loyola community.

Sincerely,

Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J
President
