UD meets community vaccination challenge

The University of Dayton today announced the campus community has achieved 70% percent overall vaccinations and will ease COVID-19 safety protocols.

While the danger from the virus and its variants continues, the 70% immunization rate is expected to provide an appreciable level of immunity and should help protect the campus community. 

"We want to thank each and every individual in our campus community who have chosen to receive the vaccine, enabling us to reach a 70% level of immunity," said UD President Eric Spina. "While the immediate result is easing of restrictions to enable a more normal campus experience, the real benefits are that our overall community is better protected against the virus and individuals advance their own personal protection. We will continue to encourage anyone who has not been vaccinated to schedule their appointment so they can be fully vaccinated before the fall semester starts."

Details can be found in this July 9 announcement to campus. The University will continue to maintain its webpages with COVID-19 operations updates, health resources, vaccine FAQs, and the dashboard of current cases. As new guidance evolves, webpages will be updated or may be consolidated or moved.

University of Dayton classes for the 2021-22 academic year begin Monday, Aug. 23.
