Wright State University will open a campus testing and vaccination center on the Dayton Campus in partnership with Premier Health next week.
The center will offer free COVID-19 vaccines to students, faculty and staff and weekly required surveillance testing of randomly selected community members.
The testing and vaccination center is located in 023 Student Union, near the WWSU radio station (see the map at the end of this article).
Students, faculty and staff who wish to obtain a Pfizer vaccination (either first shot, second shot, or third shot/booster for those who qualify) can schedule an appointment at the testing center.
Wright State encourages all eligible people to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Employees and students who are fully vaccinated may report their vaccination status to the university and enter a voluntary giveaway. Learn more at wright.edu/giveaway.
Asymptomatic surveillance testing
Wright State will increase its surveillance testing of asymptomatic students, faculty, and staff on the Dayton Campus beginning next week.
Students and employees randomly chosen each week will receive an email with instructions to schedule a free, required in-person COVID-19 test at the testing center or provide proof of a recent COVID-19 test to the university. Selected students and employees have one week to complete their test.
The center will be open for in-person testing on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the remainder of the Fall Semester. Selected students and employees may also complete the required testing using a free at-home test kit, which will be available at the testing center.
Free at-home kits will also be available to any student or employee for their own use. Limit one test kit per week per person. Please bring a current ID. At-home kits can be picked up at the testing center on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The testing center is limited to asymptomatic surveillance testing. If you have symptoms, please contact Student Health Services at Wright State Physicians by calling or texting 937-245-7200 or with a local provider.
