To protect your health and safety and in anticipation of the SUNY mandate*, MCC encourages you to get vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the start of the fall semester.
MCC will host its first COVID-19 vaccine clinic exclusively for faculty, staff and students from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.** next Monday, August 2 in the Gilman Lounge, R. Thomas Flynn Campus Center at the Brighton Campus. The clinic is hosted in partnership with Excellus and KHP Healthcare Services and is brought to you free of charge.
Clinic staff will administer the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. (Learn more about this vaccine on the C DC website.) Eligible persons must be 12 years of age or older to receive the vaccine. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses; your appointment for the second dose will be scheduled at the clinic.
If you are not vaccinated, please consider this convenient option. Register using this link: https://kinneydrugs.as.m e/MonroeCommunityCollege to guarantee your appointment. Walk-in appointments are limited. Future dates will be announced.
Prior to your appointment, please complete the attached Covid Vaccine Screening and Consent Form and bring it with you. Forms will also be available at the clinic.
This clinic complements the Monroe County COVID-19 Vaccine site that is open daily from 2:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Downtown Campus. Visit Monroe County’s vaccine web site for more information and to schedule an appointment.
Fully vaccinated students and who have submitted proof of vaccination are not required to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing.
Employees are not required to have a COVID-19 vaccination and have the option to voluntarily submit proof of vaccination to MCC’s Human Resources Office starting in August.
*Per New York state guidance, and pending approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a COVID-19 vaccination will become mandatory for all SUNY students who take in-person classes. The timing of this requirement is yet to be determined. At that point, the COVID-19 vaccination would be treated like all other student immunization requirements and may require additional verification steps. A “compliance window” will be determined should the vaccine become mandatory after the start of the fall semester.
** Clinic hours may be extended based on demand.
