Dear Johns Hopkins Community:
Our efforts to make sure every eligible affiliate has a COVID booster shot have been very successful, and we appreciate your help in making our campuses as safe as possible. If you are eligible for the booster but still have not gotten one, there are two more clinics coming up.
For the clinic at the Freshman Annex, you must book in advance via MyChart. Registration through MyChart is also encouraged for the Feb. 28 clinic if you want to be guaranteed a spot, but walk-ins are welcome. JHU affiliates who are eligible and will be on our campuses must upload documentation of their booster shots into the Vaccine Management System as soon as possible.
As we look forward to a spring semester where we continue to keep COVID cases low on our campuses, we are also committed to the well-being of the Baltimore community. In addition to the work we have done throughout the pandemic to provide our neighbors in Baltimore with masks and other supplies, we are now helping several partner organizations in the community give city residents approximately 30,000 N95 and KN95 masks and more than 6,000 free, take-home rapid covid tests. More information on our community support activities is on the JHU Coronavirus Information website.
Thank you for being a part of our plans for a safe, healthy, and successful semester.
