Cal State Long Beach becomes the first CSU campus to establish its own COVID-19 vaccination clinic!
According to ABC7, the university is dispensing COVID vaccines to all university staff, faculty, and students. The city's public health department allotted the campus clinic 1,170 doses for the first round of vaccinations, which the report adds began Tuesday.
CSULB, who is following public health guidelines, has determined that those who currently work on campus will get the vaccine first. Those who are older and may have high-risk conditions are prioritized. The university will then move onto the rest of its employees and then to students.
More than 6,000 faculty currently work at Cal State Long Beach. Only university employees and students will be eligible to receive the COVID vaccine.
The faculty, staff and students eligible for the vaccine will reportedly receive an email to register for appointments using their campus email addresses.
An email confirmation from the school will be required along with a completed health questionnaire found on the school’s website and photo identification.
