The federal vaccine mandate has been overturned by the Supreme Court.

On July 25th, Greg Hartman, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of Texas A&M, announced via email that the university will offer free COVID-19 vaccines for anyone ages six months and older. The vaccines will be available from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. July 28 at the A&M System Moore-Connally building on 301 Tarrow Street in College Station. No appointment to get the vaccine is necessary.

The clinic will provide infant and toddler vaccines for children between six months and five years, as well as primary doses and booster doses for individuals five and older. The clinic asks that individuals qualified for a booster shot bring proof of previous COVID-19 vaccination.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, recommends vaccination for everyone ages six months and older. According to their website, COVID-19 vaccines are effective at protecting people from getting seriously ill, being hospitalized and even dying.

For more information about the vaccinations, visit covid.tamu.edu/vaccines/index.html.
