For those interested, please use this West End Pharmacy form to complete your registration for an upcoming GHC vaccination event:

You will need to complete this form for each person who will be taking part in the event. For example, if you and your spouse plan to take part, then you will need to click the link above, complete the form for yourself, AND ALSO click the link above again, and complete the form for your spouse, as well. (Repeat this process for each person who will be participating.)


What will I need? 

The vaccination part of this event is non-private, meaning there won’t be any screens or areas to remove clothing for your shot. In consideration of this, you should wear a sleeveless top or short-sleeved shirt that will allow you to easily expose your arm and shoulder area.

You MUST bring your vaccine card you received during your first dose of the vaccine if this is your second dose.

(And don’t forget your mask!)

Where do I go? 

The vaccination event will take place in “Student Center Building B.  Park in Lot “B” behind the student center. (Please do not park in the “Limited Parking (LP)” area directly in front of the student center. This area is reserved for pharmacy personnel.)

From the parking lot, follow directional signage to enter the student center at the back entrance (nearest “D” deliveries drive).

Once you are inside the student center, make your way to the check-in table

After you check in to the event, follow directional signage to the student gym.

Half of the student gym will be used for vaccinations, and the other half of the gym will have spaced seating for 15-minute post-vaccination observation.

What can I expect? 

All campus guidelines will be followed during this event. You will need to wear a face covering, and if lines begin to form, please keep six feet between yourself and others.

Once you have checked in, you will proceed to the gym through the connecting hallway to receive your vaccination.

After your vaccination is complete, you will move to the spaced seating area on the opposite side of the student gym to wait for 15 minutes. You will also have your vaccination card updated.
