Vaccine distribution planned on UC campus

State's expanded COVID-19 vaccine distributon to include Ohio campuses

In an afternoon press conference held Thursday, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced that medical providers will soon receive delivery of COVID-19 vaccine in order to administer the vaccine to university students in Ohio. Students will be eligible to receive these designated supplies on a voluntary basis.  

University of Cincinnati students are encouraged to make use of this on-campus opportunity to obtain the one-dose Johnson & Johnson, starting on April 10. The one-dose provides simple, one-time administration – no follow-up second dose weeks later. This is especially convenient for those students who are planning to leave the area and/or won’t be on campus after spring term comes to a close.

Due to national supply limitations, UC's on-campus vaccination clinic will be one of the few sources of single-dose vaccine in southwest Ohio, and we anticipate ultimately having enough vaccine to vaccinate all students wishing to do so before the end of the semester.

Vaccination clinics will begin Saturday, April 10.
