Important Information Regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations – Law Students
To: W&L Law Students
From: Trenya Mason, Assistant Dean of Law Student Affairs
Date: Monday, May 3
Achieving a high level of COVID-19 vaccination coverage among our campus community affords us the best chance of being on campus with fewer requirements for masking and distancing. Over the past two weeks, vaccinations reported by our students, faculty, and staff in the Daily Attestation application have slowed, and we currently sit at just under 66% of our campus population being at least partially vaccinated. This means we have some work to do still to get our campus community to a level of widespread vaccination coverage.
We continue to strongly encourage all of our students, faculty, and staff to get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. This includes individuals who have previously been infected with COVID-19, who can get vaccinated any time after COVID infection once they are out of isolation and acute symptoms have resolved.
For those still in Lexington, there are appointments available for the Central Shenandoah Health District's two clinics at the Old Peebles/Gordmans in Lexington tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4:
- To make an appointment for the Johnson & Johnson single dose vaccine, visit https://vaccineappointments.virginia.gov/client/registration?clinic_id=4407.
- Pre-registration has closed for the Pfizer vaccine, though walk-ups will be welcomed if supply allows. If you get a first dose of Pfizer at this clinic, your second dose will be scheduled for May 25.
Additional clinics can be found using the Virginia Department of Health's vaccination finder at vaccineappointments.virginia.gov.
In addition, in order to accurately reflect the percentage of our campus population that has been vaccinated, it is important that everyone log their vaccination dates in the Daily Attestation application. If you have not already done so, please report your vaccine dates as soon as possible. Those who have left the area for the summer should still report vaccination doses in the Daily Attestation application when you receive them.
