Dear Campus Community,

We are pleased to share that through our work with Pennsylvania State Representative Joe Webster, Ursinus College has been invited to submit names for a Phase 1A vaccine clinic organized and sponsored by Skippack Pharmacy.

Ursinus faculty, staff, and students who are eligible for Phase 1A vaccinations are encouraged to request appointments at the clinic, which is scheduled for Sunday, March 28, at North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pa. This is entirely voluntary. This is a special opportunity for the Ursinus community, therefore those who have already registered for a vaccination with Skippack Pharmacy should still complete the Ursinus survey.

Please understand this does not mean that everyone is guaranteed a time slot, though we will do all we can to support our colleagues and peers through this process. Those who do participate will need a second dose; that date has not yet been determined but will likely follow within the following three to four weeks.

Here are instructions to navigate that request process. Again, this is completely voluntary.

1. Visit the PA COVID-19 vaccine website to determine 1A eligibility at https://go.ursinus.edu/PA_Vaccine_Info.

2. Next, if you are eligible, complete the Ursinus 1A Vaccine Survey at https://go.ursinus.edu/Vacc_1A_eligible_Survey.

Please complete the Ursinus survey by Wednesday, March 24, at noon.

Completing the survey does not guarantee an appointment; rather, you will receive an email from Skippack Pharmacy alerting you of an appointment opportunity. You should plan to respond to that email notice promptly. In order to sign up for an appointment notification, you will only be required to share your name, date of birth, your role (faculty, staff, or student), and your Ursinus email address.

As you may know, the pharmacy has been extensively profiled across the country for its leadership and service to the residents of Montgomery County in outlets ranging from ABC’s Good Morning America to Reuters. You can read the Reuters story here: https://go.ursinus.edu/Skippack_Pharmacy_News.

Thank you for your continued efforts to Defend the Den and look after one another’s well-being.

Sincerely,

President Blomberg
