Dear Adelphi Community,

We are pleased to share that Adelphi has been allotted a limited number of Pfizer vaccine doses from New York state in order to resume on-campus COVID-19 vaccinations for current Adelphi students beginning Monday, April 26, 2021. Should additional doses remain, they will be made available to faculty and staff on Friday, April 30.

Supplies are limited and will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect to receive 350 doses from New York state through a second allocation arranged by the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities (CICU).

Pfizer is a two-dose vaccine. This means that students who opt to receive their first dose between Monday, April 26, and Thursday, April 29, must be available between Monday, May 17, and Friday, May 21, to return to campus for their second dose.

Type of Vaccine: Pfizer-BioNTech (two doses)
Cost of Vaccine: There is no cost to the student or their family for this vaccine.
