COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

    ** Please note: this website pertains to members of the Saint Leo University community only. For information and scheduling for the public vaccination program offered by the Department of Health please visit their website at http://pasco.floridahealth.gov/ **

    Saint Leo University COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic

    Saint Leo University is pleased to offer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at its University Campus location for those members of our community who meet the eligibility criteria. As a close-knit community, the risk for spreading the virus is greater compared to some populations, making it important for everyone to consider obtaining the vaccine.

    The vaccine will generally be administered during a drive-thru event in the parking garage by members of the University Health Center. Some vaccine clinic events may include opportunities for walk-up vaccine. This will vary by clinic date. Clinic dates and appointment registration opportunities will be communicated via email to Saint Leo community members. Please monitor your email carefully for notification of vaccination opportunities.

    If you have any additional questions, please email covid19commandteam@saintleo.edu and a member of the COVID response team will respond to your inquiry.

     


    Steps to Get the Vaccine

    1. WATCH. Be on the lookout for an email from the university, notifying you when registration is open. You will not be able to register until you receive this email.
    2. REGISTER. Click on the registration link in the email and follow the instructions to obtain a scheduled appointment time. You will receive a confirmation email once your appointment has been made. Please refer to our vaccine registration instructions for a step-by-step guide on using the booking system.
    3. PREPARE. Download, print, and complete both the vaccine consent form and waiver form and bring them to your appointment. For those who are eligible for vaccination under the extreme medical vulnerability criteria, you will be required to bring a completed and signed copy of the vulnerability form to your appointment.
    4. VACCINATE. Please plan to arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time and follow the directional signs. You will need to complete check-in (located in the parking lot by the tennis courts) before you receive your vaccine in the garage. You will need to arrive in a car with a window that can be lowered, and you must remain inside your vehicle at all times.
    5. If you are registered as a “walk-up” recipient of the vaccine, please go directly to the Bowman walk-in entrance to the garage for check-in.
    6. Appointments for second doses will be made available by email the week following your first dose appointment. Please follow Step 1 through 4 for your second dose vaccine as well.

    About the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was 94.1% effective during clinical trials at preventing COVID-19 in people who received two doses and who had no evidence of being previously infected. For individuals who experienced side effects from the vaccine during the clinical trials, their symptoms were mostly mild to moderate.

    There are several positive benefits to receiving the vaccine. The CDC advises that the vaccine can help people avoid serious illness from COVID-19 (it is unknown how each person’s body will respond to the virus) and that it will help reduce the spread of the virus among others, possibly preventing death for vulnerable populations.
