April 7 Message to International Students: IMPORTANT- COVID-19 Vaccine Information

To Our International Students,

As of Monday, March 29, all residents of Ohio ages 16 and older can receive the vaccine. 
International students at Case Western Reserve University are considered residents of Ohio. That means all international students at CWRU are now able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 
CWRU students who have not yet received any vaccine will be able to choose among all three available options this week: Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (J&J). While the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines both require two doses for full effectiveness, Johnson & Johnson needs just one. You can learn more about the J&J vaccine from the Centers for Disease Control.

Below are the dates and times when each type of vaccine will be administered to Case Western Reserve students; if you have a preference among the options, please register for an appointment when that vaccine is being offered. No vaccine other than the one indicated below will be administered within that designated window. 

Pfizer, 1st Dose: Wednesday, April 7, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, April 10, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Pfizer, 2nd Dose: Thursday, April 8, 9 am. to 5 p.m.

Moderna, 1st Dose: Friday, April 9, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Johnson & Johnson (1 dose only): Thursday, April 8, 5 to 8 p.m.; Friday, April 9, 2 to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, April 11, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

To schedule your appointment, fill out the online form or call 216.368.1964 on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The doses will be administered at the Veale Convocation, Recreation and Athletic Center, 2138 Adelbert Road; parking in the adjacent garage is free for people getting vaccinated.

If you have any questions or concerns about the vaccine, please visit the university’s COVID-19 website for more information: https://case.edu/covid19/health-safety/vaccinations
