Drury University, Springfield Greene Co. Health Dept. hosts a vaccination clinic for new freshmen
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Drury University encourages incoming students to get vaccinated before returning to campus. The college welcomed over 200 new freshmen and their families for the annual Drury Fusion Day.
Students had the opportunity to learn about campus resources and meet teachers to help them make the transition to college life. But this year, Drury University and the Springfield-Greene County Department of Health hosted an afternoon vaccination clinic so incoming students and their family members could get vaccinated.
“I sure hope everyone chooses to have a hit or a hit,” Drury freshman Jakob Limpert said. “I think this is a big step forward for the state of Missouri, and especially for the whole country, just to get it over with as soon as possible, and to make it all a little easier.”
Jakob Limpert opted to receive the Johnson & Johnson single dose vaccine during his visit. He says he’s thrilled to attend basketball games, talk face to face with his teachers, and not sit behind a screen all semester. Limpert is a college football player.
âAt the end of the day, I think everyone should get it because that’s what we have to do as a state, as a country, as a university,â Limpert said. âI would say it is enough to understand because you might not think that you are helping yourself, but that you are helping a lot of others. “
Drury University does not require that students be vaccinated before returning to campus, but strongly encourages it.
