Mercer is encouraging students, faculty and community members to get vaccinated against COVID-19 by offering free and convenient opportunities to get the shot.

In an email sent to the Mercer community Aug. 12, President Bill Underwood said that Mercer’s goal is to have 80% of students either fully vaccinated or vaccinated with the first dose by “early in the fall semester.”

But unvaccinated Bears need not fear — there are five more opportunities in August and early September for members of the Mercer community to get vaccinated.

Free COVID-19 vaccines will be available at the University Center during Bear Fair Aug. 23 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The vaccines will be given out in the aerobics room adjacent to the intramural courts in the University Center.

Vaccines are also being offered at Mercer School of Law Aug. 26 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m and at Penfield Hall Aug, 27, Sept. 3 and Sept. 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

For both the Bear Fair and Mercer Law School sites, appointments are not needed. For the Penfield Hall site, appointments can be made through Mercer Medicine. The vaccines will be administered on-site.

For those unable to make those dates, there are several additional vaccination sites throughout Macon. Appointments can also be booked on the Georgia Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 vaccine registration site.
