Kutztown University strongly encourages members of its campus community to get vaccinated. While the university does not currently have the legal authority to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine of its students and employees, the COVID-19 vaccine is an important tool to help us end the pandemic.
Use www.vaccines.gov to find a location near you, then call or visit their website to make an appointment.
There are three locations in Kutztown currently distributing the vaccine: Rite Aid (23 North Elm St.), Weis Pharmacy (15260-2 Kutztown Rd.) and CVS Pharmacy (45 Constitution Blvd.). Click the links above to schedule an appointment.
In addition, Kutztown University will host on-campus vaccine clinics through February (details below).
