Embry-Riddle Students – Make Your Vaccination Plan Now
As of Monday, April 5, all Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University students will be eligible for Covid-19 vaccines in both Florida and Arizona.
Make your vaccination plan immediately so that you can complete your second dose before the spring semester ends.
- State-run vaccination sites in Florida, where Embry-Riddle’s Daytona Beach Campus is located, will open to everyone age 18 and up as of Monday, April 5. See below for Florida vaccination options and take action now.
- In Arizona, home of Embry-Riddle’s Prescott Campus, Yavapai County began offering vaccines to everyone age 18 on March 29. Nearby Maricopa County is vaccinating all those age 16 and up.
- Embry-Riddle has been able to secure limited vaccine supplies for the Prescott Campus and has so far provided two on-campus clinics. Information about the next clinic will be distributed next week. Please do not call the Wellness Center for information on vaccine clinics. We will send you the information as soon as a plan has been finalized.
Florida Vaccine Information:
Embry-Riddle has been working hard to try and get vaccine supplies for the Daytona Beach Campus, as we have been able to do for the Prescott Campus. As those efforts continue, here is what we know about where you can get vaccinated.
- Use this handy VaccineFinder website to locate available vaccine appointments in the 32114 zip code. As of this writing, vaccine supplies are in stock at multiple nearby locations including CVS, Walgreens and Walmart.
- NOTE: Florida students may be asked to show proof of residency such as a Florida driver’s license or state-issued ID card. If you do not have these types of ID but you live on campus, stop by the Housing Office, or contact them at Daytona.Housing@erau.edu or 386-323-8000 to request proof of residency. Off-campus students should gather up two official documents showing their Florida address (i.e., rental agreement, bank statement, utility bill, or the like). Check the Florida seasonal residency requirements online.
- Employees as well as students – Orange County is also accepting appointments for vaccinations at the Orange County Convention Center site. Log onto the Orange County vaccine registration site now. One of the categories listed as eligible for vaccination through Orange County is “educator or staff member at a school/college.”
- In addition, FEMA-run sites in Florida are an excellent option, particularly for employees, from food service personnel to professors. Take your university ID and a driver’s license or state-issued ID card. FEMA sites seem to be offering first doses in the morning and second doses in the afternoon. Arrive early.
- The FEMA sites closest to the Daytona Beach Campus are located at Gateway Mall, 5200 Norwood Avenue, Jacksonville, and Valencia College – West Campus, 1800 S. Kirkman Road, Orlando. These sites are open 7:00 am – 7:00 pm, seven days a week, no appointment needed. The process is quick and easy. Enjoy the food trucks and free water.
