SAINT PAUL, MN — Concordia University participates in the White House’s invitation to distribute COVID-19 vaccines on campus.

President Biden wants as many as Americans as possible to get vaccinated. One of the organized distribution paths is to collaborate with numerous colleges and universities across the country. White House calls this a challenge and asked participating colleges and universities to ensure three things:

  1. Engage with every member of the campus community, including student, faculty and staff members. Make sure they know that they are eligible for a vaccine and has the resources to get one.
  2. Organize the college community to plan and get as many members of the community vaccinated as possible.
  3. Arrange and deliver vaccine shots for all, ensuring it is easy to get for students.

This challenge will become a part of the effort in saving lives and helping the nation to return to normal. While the communities of older generations have received the shot, it is now time for the younger generations to get theirs. By participating to get vaccinated, the youths will reduce the risk of giving the virus to someone else or be infected by other people.

CSP has been preparing the plan so as to create environment that is safe, hygiene, and practice health protocols following the CDC guidelines.

Currently, COVID-19 vaccine for age group 12 – 17 can be obtained at walk-ins center managed by Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) at:

  • Bloomington (Mall of America)
  • Saint Paul (Roy Wilkins Auditorium)
  • Lino Lakes
  • Oakdale
