Vaccination effort continues at APSU

Austin Peay State University’s vaccination site in parking lot 11, next to the Ard Building, has administered more than 3,000 doses of the Moderna vaccination. This site represents a major University effort to help keep the campus and the Clarksville-Montgomery County community safe, and we could use your help to make sure this effort continues to run smoothly.

We received strong campus support early in this venture, but as the semester end approaches, fewer people have signed up to help us at this site. If you are interested in supporting this project by volunteering at the vaccination tent, please sign up at www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0D4DAEA628A5F4C43-vaccine1

All adults 18+ are eligible to receive the vaccine in Montgomery County. You can schedule your appointment online at Austin Peay State University for Montgomery County: COVID-19 Vaccination (signupgenius.com).
