The Georgia Department of Public Health has designated Kennesaw State University as a distribution site to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to all students, faculty, and staff. KSU has partnered with Wellstar Health System to give the vaccinations to our campus population.
Vaccine Update as of October 22, 2021
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) now recommend a booster dose of the Moderna and J&J COVID-19 vaccine for individuals currently eligible under the specified criteria listed below:
- 65 years of age and older
- 18 through 64 years of age at high risk of severe COVID-19
- 18 through 64 years of age with frequent institutional or occupational exposure
Individuals who received Moderna must also be at least six months removed from receiving their second dose of the vaccines to be eligible for the booster dose and two months removed for those who received the J&J vaccine.
Beginning October 22 between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., and Tuesday, October 26 between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., if you previously received the Moderna vaccine and qualify for a booster dose under the criteria listed above, please visit 3217 Campus Loop Road on a walk-in basis to receive your booster dose.
In order to receive a Moderna booster on campus, you must have received Moderna for your previous doses. Wellstar is not currently administering mix and match doses on campus. Additional vaccine booster dose availability will be shared here in the coming weeks.
J&J is currently out of stock at KSU, therefore the booster will not be administered on campus at this time. Recipients of J&J interested in receiving the booster are encouraged to visit a nearby pharmacy, like CVS or Walgreens.
Please bring your KSU ID and Vaccination Record Card with you. Without these two documents, you will not be able to receive your booster. Please park at the Church Lot on Campus Loop Road. You can view the Kennesaw Campus parking map here.

If these dates and times do not work for your schedule, booster doses are also available at most nearby pharmacies, like CVS and Walgreens.
Additional populations are expected to become eligible for booster doses this fall. KSU will continue following CDC and DPH guidance for the administration of booster doses. Check back for the most recent updates regarding booster shots rollout.
