Centre chief Communications Officer Michael Strysick said the college received 500 of thePfizer vaccine for Wednesday, March 31, and administered 100 of the doses this past Saturday.

“We’re absolutely thrilled with and grateful for this new partnership that will heighten the prospects for health and safety on our campus and in the community,” Strysick said. “We credit Dr. Steven STack for his goal to vaccinate college students prior to the end of this academic year. This, added to the fact that many Centre faculty and staff have already been vaccinated or are awaiting their second dose, is cause for hope.”

Strysick added that not only with the students benefit from the the local vaccine site, but “the community members will benefit as well, which makes us happy to be good neighbors at a time when we all need to work together.”

And as a side note, Strysick said the clinic director on Wednesday will be a 2017 Centre graduate and a classmate will help administer the vaccines.

According to Wild Health, patients will not be charged any out of pocket expense for the vaccine.

Once you arrive, please follow the instructions from the Wild Health staff and/or signage. Please note that vaccine appointments will be opened based on the number of vaccines allocated that week. This may vary and appointments may change based on vaccine availability. Masks must be worn to enter the facility.

If you do not see any times available, then that means that the clinic has booked all appointments at that time. More vaccination appointments will be made available as resources allow.

Walk-in appointments will not be accepted, so please register on this site before arriving. If you are receiving your second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please bring your vaccine card to verify your first dose…keeping in mind that you first dose must be Pfizer.
