Community Vaccine Clinics

Rasmussen Center, Creighton campus

Creighton Serves as Community Vaccine Clinic

Creighton University is hosting COVID-19 community vaccine clinics in partnership with the Douglas County Health Department. The clinic is located in Creighton’s Rasmussen Center, 702 N. 17th St., with convenient parking located off 17th Street, between Burt and Cass streets. (See parking information.)

Registration is through the Douglas County Health Department. Walk-ins will be accepted Saturday, April 17. If you have an appointment, please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled time to help avoid overcrowding and to maintain proper social distancing.

Those registered should receive an email from the Douglas County Health Department confirming your appointment. Follow the instructions in the email to complete your online immunization record profile. After completing the profile, you will receive a unique ID Code. Bring this code with you to your appointment. Those receiving their second dose should also bring their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.

Those 16-18 must also have a completed parental consent form and have a parent present. (Creighton students who are minors must have a completed parental consent form but do not need a parent present.) Creighton is administering the Pfizer vaccine.

Who is eligible? The Douglas County Health Department is scheduling vaccination appointments for Douglas County residents who are 16 years of age or older.

How do you register? Douglas County residents can register for an appointment through the Douglas County Health Department’s COVID-19 Vaccine Registration Site or by calling the health department’s information line at 402.444.3400. Registration is based on Douglas County’s stratification plan.

Please note: Registration is through the Douglas County Health Department, and not Creighton University or CHI Health.
