Missouri S&T’s student well-being team has received a grant from the American College Health Association (CoVAC) to help address COVID-19 vaccine confidence and health information at S&T this semester. Missouri S&T was one of 41 colleges and universities within 25 states that were selected for this grant. The funding will be used to help create and publish a variety of educational and health promotion materials for the S&T community.

As part of the programming from this grant, student well-being has created the S&T “Why I Got Vaccinated” Project. This social media campaign showcases the motivations for getting vaccinated and the experiences shared by S&T students, faculty and staff. The project is available on Instagram at @sandtwellbeing and highlighted in the COVID-19 stories tab. If you would like to share your story, visit bit.ly/3hcRrjT and please do not include any identifying details.

The student well-being team will host tabling events and distribute information on COVID-19 throughout the semester. Keep on the lookout for events and social media posts.

In partnership with Phelps Health, Missouri S&T will host clinics to administer the Pfizer vaccine at the following times:

  • 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6, in the Meramec and Gasconade Rooms of the Havener Center
  • 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, in the Meramec and Gasconade Rooms of the Havener Center.
