BSN (Juniors and Seniors) and MN student vaccine communications

Hello BSN Junior and Senior Twin Cities students and MN students:

The school of nursing is beginning to get more information about how School of Nursing students, who are going to be in clinical rotations for spring semester, can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  Based on Boynton Student Health Center directives, if the clinical site where a student is doing their clinical rotation is offering the vaccine to students, the student must get the vaccine at their clinical site. Boynton will not provide the vaccine to students that can get the vaccine at their clinical site. At this time, these are the health care organizations that are offering vaccines to students:

  • MHealth Fairview
  • Minneapolis Veterans Administration Health System
  • Hennepin Healthcare
  • North Memorial Hospital
  • Community University Health Care Center (CUHCC)

If you are doing a clinical rotation at any of those health care organizations, you have received or will receive more details about scheduling your vaccination appointment.  If you are not at any of those locations, Boynton Student Health Center is working with the Minnesota Department of Health to obtain COVID-vaccine doses.  When we get further information from Boynton Student Health Center, we will notify you. Only those students that are engaged in clinical care with patients will be eligible to get the vaccine through Boynton AT THIS TIME.

It may be the case that some of you have already received the first dose of the vaccine through your place of employment.  We are asking all students that have or will receive the vaccine, to go to this link and provide documentation of both vaccine doses: https://z.umn.edu/HSC19vaccine.  There may be a time when the COVID-19 vaccine will be required by our clinical sites so we want you to provide documentation.

Having said that, at this time, getting the COVID-19 vaccination is not required.  However, both the School of Nursing and the health care systems where you will be taking care of patients strongly encourage you to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

You can stay updated on the vaccine information at our School of Nursing Covid-19 webpage. The link to reporting your vaccine can also be found on that webpage.

You can also stay updated on the University’s vaccine plans at this website.

Hello Junior and Senior BSN students at Rochester:

The school of nursing is beginning to get more information about how School of Nursing students, who are going to be in clinical rotations for spring semester, can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  For our students located in Rochester, there are plans to have COVID-19 vaccinations available to you at UMR. The details are still being worked out and when we have those details, you will be notified.  Right now, students that are in clinical rotations taking care of patients have the first priority.

It may be the case that some of you have already received the first dose of the vaccine through your place of employment.  We are asking all students that have or will receive the vaccine, to go to this link and provide documentation of both vaccine doses: https://z.umn.edu/HSC19vaccine.  There may be a time when the COVID-19 vaccine will be required by our clinical sites so we want you to provide documentation.

Hello DNP students:

The school of nursing is beginning to get more information about how our nursing students, who are going to be in clinical rotations for spring semester, can receive the COVID-19 vaccine.  Based on Boynton Student Health Center directives, if the clinical site where a student is doing their clinical rotation is offering the vaccine to students, the student must get the vaccine at their clinical site.

  • Hennepin Healthcare

  • Community University Health Care Center (CUHCC)

If you are doing a clinical rotation at any of those health care organizations, you have received or will receive more details about scheduling your vaccination date/time. We also realize that many of you have already received the vaccine through your place of employment.

If you are not at any of the above locations and have not received the vaccine through your workplace, Boynton Student Health Center is working with the Minnesota Department of Health to obtain COVID-vaccine doses.  When we get further information from Boynton Student Health Center, we will notify you. Only those students that are engaged in clinical care with patients will be eligible to get the vaccine through Boynton AT THIS TIME.

We are asking all students that have or will receive the vaccine, to go to this link and provide documentation of both vaccine doses: https://z.umn.edu/HSC19vaccine.  There may be a time when the COVID-19 vaccine will be required by our clinical sites so we want you to provide documentation. It will also help us to know students who need to get the vaccine through Boynton Health Services. We have to provide Boynton with an exact number of students that need the vaccine so that they can make the request for doses through the Minnesota Department of Health.

Having said that, at this time, getting the COVID-19 vaccination is not required.  However, both the School of Nursing and the health care systems where you will be taking care of patients strongly encourage you to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
