COVID Booster and Pediatric Vaccine Doses Available to SLU Community

11/15/2021

Dear students, staff and faculty, 

Book your appointment for a vaccination booster dose 

As we reported previously, St. Louis City public health authorities consider the CDC’s new eligibility criteria to permit all University community members over 18 years of age to obtain a booster vaccination dose.  

However, the state’s vaccination protocol still requires that you attest that you meet one of the qualifications. You do not need to provide evidence of meeting the eligibility criteria for a booster dose. 

You may register for an appointment here. Please be sure to bring your vaccination card with you to your appointment, although you can obtain your booster dose without it. 

Mixing and matching booster vaccine types  

As a reminder: The CDC has given each of us the agency to decide which type of vaccine — Moderna, Pfizer or J&J — we want for our COVID-19 booster dose. Please speak with your primary care provider if you are unsure which is best for you. 

Vaccinations for children ages 5 - 11 will begin on November 17 

The CDC and Missouri recently approved pediatric COVID-19 vaccination doses. This morning, we received pediatric doses from the State. 

We will begin vaccinations for children ages 5 to 11 on Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 2 - 5 p.m. You may register for a pediatric dose appointment here. Please note that this first pediatric vaccination clinic will be strictly for children ages 5 to 11 years. We will not administer adult vaccines or booster doses during this clinic. Future clinics will offer appointments for adults and children.  

A parent or guardian must attend with the child. Children should wear clothing that allows their shoulder and/or thigh to be accessible for vaccine administration.  

Thanks so much for your commitment to OneSLU and protecting the public health on our St. Louis campuses and in our city. 

Best regards.
