The school will begin distributing 1700 Johnson and Johnson Covid-19 vaccines through Metro Health.

According to the school's web site, the vaccinations will be delivered via invitations using the following protocol:

  • Dining student workers
  • Resident assistants
  • Laboratory student workers
  • In-person student workers
  • On-campus residents
  • Near campus and in-person students

Metro Health will manage the distribution and the invitations for the one shot only Johnson vaccine. Those invitations will be distributed over the next several days and inoculations will begin next week.

Students are urged to fill out the online daily self assessment, and if they're not one of those considered for the Johnson vaccine, to seek out a vaccine through their health care provider or at DeVos Place, which is on the Lake Line bus service.
