Dear Students,

In partnership with Hartford HealthCare, we are pleased to announce a COVID-19 vaccine clinic for Trinity College students. The clinic will be held on April 24 and 25 at Xfinity Theatre (61 Savitt Way in Hartford). The clinic will be providing the Pfizer vaccine, and students will be able to obtain their second doses three weeks later, on May 15 or 16.

We strongly encourage all students who have not yet been vaccinated to take advantage of this opportunity to get the COVID-19 vaccine. We want to do all we can to mitigate the risk of the virus, especially as students travel home at the end of the semester.

Please remember that even after you are vaccinated, our protocols currently require all students on campus to continue with surveillance testing, wearing of face coverings, and symptom-checking. We also ask you to provide confirmation of your vaccination.
