Stay Healthy, Stay Safe. Navigating COVID-19 Together.

Most Recent Update

Dear Hawkeye Community,

COVID-19 Vaccines

The Student Health Clinic is now offering Moderna vaccines for students, faculty, and staff every Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00am – 3:00pm. Appointments are recommended.

It’s important to get your health information from a trusted source. If you have questions or concerns about the vaccine, schedule an appointment with the nurse practitioner to get information as it relates to your health. In-person and telemedicine appointments are available by calling 319-296-4224.

Receive up to $100 to Help Remove Financial Barriers to Vaccinate

Vaccination is a personal decision. While COVID-19 vaccines are free, some individuals may have other financial barriers to getting vaccinated like childcare, transportation expenses, or potentially lost wages.

Worth-a-Shot is a local nonprofit organization helping individuals who want to get vaccinated offset expenses related to vaccination or routine side effects from vaccination with up to $100 to qualifying individuals.

Assistance may be available to:

  • College students working a job and worried about missing a shift.
  • Single parents worried about childcare if they experience side effects.
  • Individuals struggling to put gas in their car and worried about an additional expense.
  • Individuals working multiple jobs or self-employed and worried they can’t afford to miss work.

Individuals must be 18+ years of age and become vaccinated after August 12, 2021, to be eligible.

Request an application by sending a message through Worth-A-Shot Facebook or email imfo@worthashot.net.

I encourage everyone to get vaccinated, as it not only protects you from the side effects of COVID-19 but it protects our entire community. Many of the students, faculty, and staff around you live with young children or people with compromised immune systems who are not able to be vaccinated.

Wishing you a safe and healthy semester!

Dr. Todd Holcomb
Hawkeye Community College President
