As you may have seen in the news this morning, the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration have recommended a “pause” in the administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.
With COVID-19 vaccination appointments now available through the university for all students, faculty, staff and family members ages 18 and over, we are in need of volunteers to help staff the vaccination clinic on the Medical Campus, with a critical need for April 12 and 13 from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
We are now ready to begin inviting all students to make appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through the university. If you have preregistered with the university, you will receive an invitation today to make an appointment starting tomorrow through April 13.
COVID-19 vaccination appointments are now available through the university for all Washington University faculty and staff and their family members ages 18 and older.
We are planning to resume most of our on-campus activities in the fall. As always, the health and safety of our community will be our number one priority in all decisions.
We are working diligently to create plans that will allow for maximal in-person instruction, with flexibility to comply with any public health restrictions that may still be in place come August.
We have created a survey for our faculty, staff, trainees and students to pre-register for future vaccination sites managed by the university. Those with a valid WUSTL Key are able to preregister for themselves, their spouses, and/or their dependents who are over the age of 16.
Starting Monday, walk-in testing will be available to any Washington University student who is concerned that they may have been exposed to COVID-19.
We have received a modest number of vaccines and will begin immediately to distribute these to members of the Washington University community and patients within the Washington University Clinics, in accordance with the rules set forth by the state and federal government.
Among some members of our student community, we are seeing some very, very troubling signs when it comes to COVID-19.
