Vaccine Town Hall Today at 1 p.m.

May 19, 2021

REMINDERA COVID-19 vaccine information session for faculty and staff will take place at 1 p.m. today, Wednesday, May 19. Broad community vaccination against COVID-19 is a key component of our plans to return to more normal university operations this fall. The university strongly urges, and may soon require, all faculty and staff to be vaccinated; we have already announced a requirement that all students coming or returning to our campuses in the United States this fall—and who do not require health or religious exemptions—to be vaccinated.      

This is the fourth session in the series, which was designed for faculty and staff who may have questions or be seeking trustworthy information about COVID-19 vaccines. Panelists will address such topics as vaccine safety and efficacy, eligibility, and common misinformation.
