Dear Stan State Campus Community:
As the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency (HSA) continues to offer COVID-19 vaccinations to individuals in Phase 1A and those over the age 65, it will begin vaccinating three new priority groups in Phase 1B, Tier 1, beginning the week of Feb. 22, as follows:
- Individuals age 50 AND OLDER who work in:
- Education and childcare (age 50+)
- Food and agriculture (age 50+)
- Emergency services (age 50+)
- This includes Stan State faculty and staff members who are age 50 AND OLDER
- Details describing the vaccination priority groups are available on the California Department of Public Health website
As Stanislaus County continues to expand its capacity to administer the vaccine, supply allocations remain limited. Furthermore, inclement weather that is currently affecting regions throughout the country may delay vaccine shipments.
The HSA plans to hold a CLOSED Point of Distribution (POD) at the COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Stanislaus State in Fitzpatrick Arena on Monday, Feb. 22, for individuals in the EDUCATION SECTOR ONLY:
12-7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22
- CLOSED Point of Distribution (POD)
- ONLY for education employees age 50+ (includes Stan State faculty and staff age 50+)
- 1st dose only
Stan State faculty and staff who are eligible to receive the vaccine will receive information by email.
For those coming to the Stan State site:
- Use the Geer Road entrance to the campus
- Free parking in Lot 8 and 11a, near Fitzpatrick Arena
- No appointment is necessary; first come, first serve
- Bring a photo ID showing and proof of employment
- Vaccination screening forms will be provided at the clinic
- If you wish to fill out your screening prior to arriving at the clinic, download a copy
- Wear face coverings and maintain a distance of six feet from others while waiting in line
Vaccinations administered by the HSA will be available only to faculty and staff, not including student employees. There will not be separate lines at the vaccination clinic for Stan State faculty and staff.
Information about future clinic dates, including planned closed PODs, will be shared when available. Information about other vaccine clinic locations is available on the Stanislaus County Health Services Agency website.
More information on the vaccine’s safety and efficacy can be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
