NKU announces BB&T as mass vaccination site

March 9, 2021

Interim Provost Dr. Ande Durojaiye announced today in a campus-wide email that the Pfizer vaccine will be distributed at BB&T Arena on campus for eligible individuals on March 20 and 21 from 8 a.m. through 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. through 4 p.m.

This will be a partnership with St. Elizabeth’s mass-vaccination site. 

You can sign up to receive both doses of the vaccine by using MyChart, a service provided by St. Elizabeth to make scheduling more easy and available to patients.

“If you have MyChart:

  • You will schedule by clicking here
  • Login in with your MyChart credentials
  • From the home screen, click on Menu and search for and click on Schedule
  • Click on the COVID-19 Vaccine visit type
  • Complete scheduling process.”

If you do not have a MyChart account, you can sign up here. You can also schedule without a MyChart account here

Not sure if you are eligible to receive the vaccine? Here are the requirements:

  • Resident of Kentucky OR St. Elizabeth is your healthcare provider
  • AND you work at NKU, or you are over 60 or you are over 16 with comorbidities

More information on comorbidities can be found here.

Second doses of the vaccine will take place at BB&T Arena on April 10 and 11 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

The email states that there will only be 4,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine available. 

“Once we know when registration for March 20 and 21 will be live, we will communicate that to campus. So PLEASE stay tuned and sign up as soon as possible. The available appointments will go quickly,” Durojaiye wrote in the email.

Durojaiye ended the email with a reminder to follow the Norse Nine to ensure that we are remaining safe and healthy on campus.
