Campus Life April 23 


Free mumps vaccinations being given April 23, 24

Columbus State has finalized plans with the medical staff at Columbus Public Health to arrange a clinic for students to get the mumps immunization free of charge. As you may be aware, there have been more than 200 cases of the mumps in Central Ohio this spring. While only four cases have been linked to students at Columbus State, health care experts suggest that anyone who has not been vaccinated should receive the mumps immunization.

Here is the schedule for the two-day clinic in the Nestor Hall West Lounge:

  • Wednesday, April 23 – 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 24 – 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

While the vaccination is free of charge to students, each student must print and fill out this form to turn it in when they arrive at the clinic: Mumps Vaccination Registration Form

Keep in mind that pregnant women are not able to receive the mumps vaccine.

As you may have heard, the immunization is a two-step process with two doses, one month apart. Details on the second step will be made once this clinic is completed.

For students who can't attend the clinic, Columbus Public Health provides the immunizations to anyone who is uninsured free of charge at their headquarters at 240 Parsons Avenue. It's offered from 8:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. every weekday except on Tuesday. Each Tuesday it's offered from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. You can call the clinic at (614)645-7417 for more information or check out their website here:
