Ingham County Health Department drive-thru mass vaccination clinic at the Michigan State University's Pavilion for Agriculture and Livestock Education will be winding down over the next several days, coming to a close on June 8, MSU Office of the President announced on June 2.

The state will be personalizing its vaccination efforts and local areas will experience designated distribution. Health departments and vaccine providers will meet with individuals in smaller settings within their communities.

In an email sent to students and staff by University Physician Dr. David Weismantel and Emergency Management Coordinator Lt. Dave Oslund, the team complimented Ingham County Health Department’s drive-thru mass vaccination clinic, highlighting the benefits of the community partnership for the past six months.

"That said, we knew this operation would not be needed indefinitely," Weismantel and Oslund said in the email. "Our partnership with the Ingham County Health Department to operate this clinic will be winding down over the next several days, ending June 8. Across the state, vaccination efforts are transitioning to more personalized and specialized distribution. Health departments and vaccine providers are now working to meet individuals in smaller settings within communities."

However, students can visit the MSU Health Care Pharmacy for COVID-19 vaccinations throughout the summer and into the fall. It is now the main source of vaccinations on campus.

MSU students, employees, retirees and patients can register for an appointment Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon to 4 p.m. and Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
