UPDATE 11:22 a.m.: Radford University says Moderna vaccines are still available for main campus students until 2:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Dedmon Center, but now registration is not required.

However, attendees must bring their university-issued identification with them when they arrive at the Dedmon Center through the riverside entrance, school officials say.

RADFORD, Va. (WFXR) — Students at Radford University will have the opportunity to be vaccinated against the coronavirus on Thursday, but only if they pre-register first.

According to Radford University, the vaccines will be available at the Dedmon Center — through the riverside entrance — from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 8.

“If you have not received the COVID-19 vaccine and wish to do so, this is a wonderful opportunity to ensure the health, safety, and well-being of yourself and others,” Radford University said in a Facebook post on Wednesday, April 7.

However, the university says walk-ups will not be permitted at the clinic, which is being held through a partnership with the New River Health District.

In order to register for Thursday’s vaccine clinic, students are asked to check their university email for the pre-registration link.
