The Sacred Heart University clinic is also for staff and faculty members. 
There will be another one for them on Sunday.
They'll have to come back in a few weeks for their second shot.
Just yesterday, Fairfield University in town had a clinic for its students, faculty, and staff and for Fairfield Prep.
Fairfield University is not requiring students to get vaccinated before returning in the fall, but it is giving students the option by bringing the vaccine right to them before they leave for summer break.
As for Sacred Heart, getting vaccinated is also just encouraged, but there are incentives for students.
Undergrads who get vaccinated could win prizes like an iPhone or iPad.
