Neck gaiters, face masks with exhalation valves and face shields (unless used in conjunction with an acceptable cloth face covering) are not sufficient as a facial covering.

Second Doses Available on Campus

Nurses work at an on-campus vaccination clinic.
Johana Burgos, director of Stetson Health Services, prepares a vaccination at an on-campus clinic in April 2021.

Stetson University, in partnership with the Volusia County Department of Health, will be offering second doses of COVID-19 vaccines for those who received their first dose on campus last month. A Pfizer vaccination clinic is scheduled for Sept. 22 in the Rinker Field House, Hollis Center. You will receive an email to remind you of your original appointment time. Please bring your vaccination card and your Stetson ID. First doses may also be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and information will be provided to schedule your second dose off campus.

Vaccination Clinic: 

  • Wednesday, Sept. 22, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. (for first doses administered on Aug. 25)

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 prevents severe illness, hospitalizations and death, and reduces transmission. With the Delta variant, this is more urgent than ever. Returning to normal is up to us! Let’s get vaccinated!

On-Campus COVID-19 Testing 
SalivaDirect PCR-based testing is free for students, faculty and staff with a Stetson ID and no insurance is required. Testing will be provided every other Tuesday, 8:30-9:30 p.m., and Wednesday, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., in the CUB Faculty/Staff Lounge. Please make a note of your registered testing date(s) and time(s) as appointment verification is only provided upon registration and via email 24 hours prior to your test(s).
