STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Mississippi State University is offering free coronavirus vaccinations on campus to all of its 6-thousand faculty and staff.
Karah Lundy is a junior at MSU. She is considering getting the vaccine when it becomes available to her.
“If I knew that getting the vaccine would be able to get my college experience back to more of a college experience, I would get it in a heartbeat,” she explained.
Although it isn't offered to students just yet, the university is providing drive through Pfizer vaccinations for all employees.
Brent Crocker is the emergency manager at MSU.
He said they currently have over 11-hundred vaccines available to administer to employees.
“It helps us have a way to continue operations without having to shut things down or maybe make alternate plans,” said Crocker.
He said vaccine appointments are available from 9 AM to 4 PM Monday through Friday.
Lundy feels expanding the vaccine age groups will help create more normalcy around campus.
“That would just be like a giant leap and bound to getting us to where we don’t have to worry about it anymore," she said. "We could actually live about our daily lives.”
Crocker said the university plans to get all staff that want the vaccine done first and then the school will offer the vaccinations to students.
