COVID-19 vaccine Town Hall is next week

ISU’s Student Health Promotion will host a virtual COVID-19 Vaccine Town Hall next week to provide more information about the vaccine. The town hall is scheduled for 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday, April 15 on Zoom.

The town hall aims to share information about the spread of the virus and vaccine options, including the on-campus vaccination clinic. Vigo County Health Commissioner Darren Brucken, M.D., and Andy Morgan, Ph.D., Interim Vice President for Student Affairs, will answer questions from the ISU community about the COVID vaccines. 

Submit your questions to by Monday, April 12.

On-campus COVID-19 vaccinations started at the ISU Student Health Center on Wednesday.

The center has 180 slots available each day, and all appointments are filled for the rest of this week, said Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Andy Morgan. He told the media, “We really appreciate the students taking advantage of this.”

Alanson Gann, a junior from Paris, Ill., received his first Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine shot at the center Wednesday (see video). He said it was easy to sign up and the vaccination only took minutes. “This is just a step to help protect our fraternity community and also myself and loved ones around me,” said Gann, president of Interfraternity Council at ISU.
