Dear Students -

After a year of mostly remote learning, we are so excited at the prospect of seeing you in-person beginning fall!

We want to remind you that to contribute to your wellness and the OSU community’s public health, we are implementing a vaccine requirement for fall term. Students who learn, work or engage with others in-person during classes or university activities will need to be compliant with this vaccine requirement prior to the start of fall term.

President Biden just put forth a challenge to have at least 70% of adult Americans having received at least one shot, and to get 160 million Americans fully vaccinated by July 4. OSU is proud to join this challenge and know that Beaver Nation is committed to helping fight this pandemic. If you have already been vaccinated, upload your vaccination card by July 4, and OSU will enter you into a drawing to win one of ten $50 gift cards to the OSU Beaver Store!

If you have not yet received your vaccination, there are vaccination clinics at Reser Stadium June 3 from 1 to 5 p.m. and on Thursday, June 10, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Drop-in for first dose vaccinations or appointments for either first or second doses are available. As well, you can visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website for information about other clinics and vaccine providers in your area.

You can upload your vaccination documentation on the Student Health Services website now, and information will be available by mid-July as to how to submit an exemption request, if needed.

If you have questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine, you can email Student Health Services or talk personally with a SHS nurse. This free consultation is available noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday by calling 541-737-7211, option 7.

Have a great summer and see you soon!
