USD and Sanford Health are offering another vaccine clinic on campus. On Thursday, April 22 from noon – 1:30 p.m., students, faculty and staff can get the Moderna vaccine in the Beacom Hall lobby – no appointment needed. Please set aside 30 minutes and bring your insurance card with you. At this time, there is no out-of-pocket cost for the vaccine; private insurance companies and government insurance programs like Medicare will fully cover the cost. You will receive a $10 Charlie's gift card when you participate.

All South Dakotans age 16 and older – including USD students, regardless of primary residence – are now eligible to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

  3. Select an appointment time.
  4. If you are an out-of-state student, be sure to provide your local address when prompted.
