Making vaccine available to eligible members of our campus community continues to be a top priority.
We received a supply of vaccine this week to administer through Magers Health and Wellness Center. Appointments are available through Magers for those meeting the current eligibility requirements.
Additionally, Magers occasionally has “extra” vaccine available due to appointment cancellations or receiving additional doses beyond what we anticipated. If you are interested in being notified when extra vaccine is available and as additional groupings become eligible, please complete the online vaccination interest form.
More eligible for vaccine soon
COVID-19 cases on campus, in our community, and throughout the state have declined significantly. For over a week, the state of Missouri has recorded fewer than 500 new COVID-19 cases per day. We have had less than 10 new coronavirus cases reported on campus for each of the past four weeks.
Availability of vaccine continues to improve. On March 15, Missouri will move to Vaccine Priority Phase 1b Tier 3. This will allow K-12 educators, childcare workers and several other groups of people to become eligible for vaccination.
Meanwhile, the national supply of vaccine continues to increase with the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine receiving FDA approval. More than 90 million doses of vaccines have been administered in the United States, and the pace of vaccination is increasing.
Virtual Town Hall
As we plan for the future, I am cautious but optimistic. Barring an unforeseen setback, we will be in a much different (and better) environment when the fall 2021 semester begins.
We have scheduled another virtual town hall meeting for 3 p.m. April 9. At this meeting, I will update the campus community on the status of COVID-19 on campus. My update will include information about the university’s plans for the fall semester.
You will have an opportunity to provide feedback and ask questions. I hope you will plan to attend.
Thanks for all you do for Missouri State!
