Dear Spelman Community,

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our community vaccination drives last week. Here are a few important updates:

  • Due to a heightened season of flu and respiratory viruses, please note that the College's indoor masking advisory is still in effect and will continue through the remainder of the fall semester.

  • If you have not already, please remember to upload your COVID-19 booster vaccination card onto Etrieve. Doing so will provide us with an accurate picture of our community booster vaccination rates.

  • The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has extended the shelf-life/expiration date of the Flowflex rapid antigen kits that have been distributed to you by COVID-19 Operations and Health Services. Continue to use the home self-test kits as needed. See the new expiration dates.

  • The winter holiday is fast approaching, and many of us will be traveling to celebrate with family and friends. To ensure that our community remains protected, we will host one more Community COVID-19 Booster Drive with our friends from Walgreens Pharmacy. If you have not received a new bivalent booster, please join us on Wednesday, November 30, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Beverly D. Tatum Suites Cafeteria Hall. Don’t forget to bring your medical insurance card and CDC vaccine record card. We will provide all participants with a free wellness kit.

  • Through December 9, 2022, students, faculty and staff can pick up a distribution of rapid antigen kits in the Beverly D. Tatum Suites Private Dining Room from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Monday through Friday.

As always, thank you for doing your part to keep yourself and our community safe.

Kind Regards,

Yemi Brown, PharmD
