Subject: COVID-19 Vaccination Update
Dear Campus Community,
We are set to move into a new stage in the fight against the pandemic, as our region begins to offer COVID-19 vaccinations to the final phases. Next week, Kentucky opens up appointments to those age 16 and older, marking the final stage of the Commonwealth’s vaccine rollout. Students who live in Kentucky will be eligible to sign up for their COVID vaccine starting on April 12. Ohio and Indiana extended the vaccine eligibility to residents age 16 and older last week, so all of our student population will be able to receive their vaccine. We encourage students to check the websites often, as appointments fill very quickly. For Kentucky residents, here are the locations that offer COVID-19 vaccinations in our area:
There is also more good news on the vaccination front. This weekend, BB&T Arena will host the second round of COVID-19 vaccinations for NKU employees. Only those who received their first shot on March 20 and 21 are eligible for these second-dose vaccine appointments. We appreciate our partners at St. Elizabeth for providing the mass vaccination center for our employees.
While we are seeing progress in our faculty, staff and students getting vaccinated, it is worth reminding everyone that we are not out of the woods yet. To close the book on the pandemic, we must continue to take COVID-19 precautions, including following our Norse Nine principles. When you come to campus, complete the COVID-19 self-screen on the Healthy@NKU app to ensure everyone on NKU’s campus is well. We can all work together to keep our campus community healthy and vibrant.
