We all have a role in protecting the health and safety of the University of Oregon community.
The UO is safeguarding our community and creating a healthy campus environment by monitoring COVID-19’s prevalence, adapting our operations and programs, requiring healthy behaviors, and working with public health partners to reduce the virus’ spread and provide access to vaccines.
What You Need to Know
Spring and Summer Term
Employees - COVID-19 vaccine clinics for faculty, officers of administration, classified employees, graduate employees and student employees begin the week of April 19. Employees will receive an email invitation by April 12 to schedule a vaccination appointment with more information.
Students – please log in and complete the Student Vaccine Interest Survey to indicate your interest in signing up for the COVID-19 vaccine on the UO Eugene campus in May and a follow-up vaccine 21 days later. The survey will help us order an appropriate quantity of COVID-19 vaccine for our community.
All UO community members – you may be eligible to receive a vaccine for personal reasons or because you meet state criteria for frontline workers before UO clinics begin. This may be the faster route for getting a vaccine for some individuals, and the university encourages you to take the first opportunity you have to be vaccinated. If eligible, you can schedule an appointment with the county, pharmacy or health care provider to receive a vaccine.
