UW Stevens Point Plans Vaccine Clinic

Apr 8, 2021

The University of Wisconsin Stevens Point is teaming up with Marshfield Clinic for a walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic this Saturday on campus.

One thousand shots will be given on a first come first serve basis.

Chancellor Thomas Gibson says it's another way of beating the virus.

“It serves as a signal that we are indeed turning the corner, and we’re nearing a more familiar life.”

The clinic will be offering the single-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine meaning it'll be "one and done" for anyone that can get in.

“Folks are really excited about the prospect of being able to have one and be done, if you will.”

Gibson hopes students will take advantage of the clinic especially since they are offering the single-shot Johnson and Johnson vaccine.

“This would be one less thing they would need to worry about upon returning to the university come fall.”

Gibson says the clinic will be open from 8 to 5 but he doesn't expect the shots will last that long.

“I’m rather certain we will be able to expend all of those vaccines within that period”

The clinic is open to anyone regardless of if they are a student at the University or not.

At this time there are no plans for a second clinic.
