With the semester quickly coming to an end, members of the campus community should prepare for several changes to COVID-19 testing and vaccination over the next several weeks. These include:

- Between May 2-6 and May 9-13, you may pick up two test kits per week (see the Covid Testing page for hours and locations)
- There will be no test kit pick-up May 16-20 (the week following commencement)
- Beginning May 23, test kit pick-up will resume but will move to the ground floor of 333 East Campus Mall
- PCR testing will be unavailable May 16-20 (the week following commencement)
- Beginning May 23, PCR testing will resume but will move to the ground floor 333 East Campus Mall
University Health Services continues to offer COVID-19 vaccination, including first and second booster shots, free to all students and employees. However, the campus vaccination clinic will be closed May 23-27. It will re-open May 30. Vaccination also remains available in the community.
Especially as you plan for the end of the semester and for the summer, take steps to remain up to date with vaccines.

Second booster shots are available four months after a first booster to people who are:
- 50 and older;
