Northwestern University Health Service will work with students who received their first COVID-19 vaccine dose outside of the University but are having difficulty obtaining their second, according to a Monday email.

Vice President for Operations Luke Figora also sent out a form in which students who have not been vaccinated can sign up to be invited to a future, on-campus vaccination event.

In addition to the on-campus clinics, the University announced in April that students, faculty and staff can get vaccinated through appointment invitations from Northwestern Medicine. Students are still welcome to book appointments at these Evanston vaccination clinics, Figora wrote in the email.

“As vaccination numbers continue to increase around the country, we are encouraged that the majority of students have received at least a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine from Northwestern or elsewhere,” Figora wrote.
