COVID-19 Vaccinations Begin for Sac State Community

Listen: Ed Mills, VP of Student Affairs, CSUS. Sacramento State, approved by the state of California as a COVID-19 vaccination site, has begun administering the vaccine to members of the campus community only. Ed talks about other issues including in-student teaching and testing.

Additional information:

  • The new Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, a part of the CARES Act, will provide $17.8 million for direct distribution with fewer restrictions tied to the funding than the equal amount Sac State received last fall. This time, DACA students will also benefit.  
  • In March, the University will announce the latest details about the fundraising campaign, “On the Rise: The Campaign for Sacramento State,” with a goal to raise $225 million by 2023. 
  • Currently, only Sac State students, faculty and staff are receiving vaccinations, with eligibility set by the state/county system that is in place to determine which groups of people receive the vaccinations and when. 
  • Vaccinations at the on-campus site are not available to the public. If that changes, the public will be notified.
