Vaccine and Vaccination Information
Student Vaccine Video
“If I’ve already had COVID-19, why should I get the vaccine?” This is just one question GVSU students asked Dr. Habiba Hassouna, an infectious disease specialist at Spectrum Health. Get the answer to that question and more by watching the short video below.
Widespread vaccination will allow us to adjust our response to COVID-19. Remember to report your vaccination in your online self-assessment.
- To date, more than 75% of faculty and staff have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
- Nearly 4,000 students have reported on their self-assessment that they have received at least one dose of the vaccine.
Dr. Habiba Hassouna from Spectrum Health, and other health experts, answered questions about COVID-19 vaccines during a town hall meeting on February 23, 2021, sponsored by the GVSU Virus Action Team. The full recording of the meeting is available here.
On April 5, all Michiganders age 16 and older became eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. You can register for an appointment through your health care provider, local health department, hospital or pharmacy.
- The West Michigan Vaccine Clinic at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, operated by Kent County, Spectrum Health and Mercy Health, in collaboration with Vaccinate West Michigan, operates by appointment only.
- Most can now self-schedule online. To set up an appointment for those who are 16 or 17 years old, or those needing special assistance, call 833-755-0696.
- While this is not a Grand Valley sponsored or operated event, it is likely one of your best opportunities to get a vaccine appointment quickly.
- You don’t have to live in Kent County to schedule an appointment.
