Thanks to the free, effective and widely available COVID-19 vaccines, classes, events and even the Grove will look different from last year. Vaccines offer us the best path forward! Currently, the University of Mississippi does not require students or employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 but urges everyone who is eligible to protect themselves and their families by getting vaccinated. If you haven’t been vaccinated and have concerns about the vaccines, I encourage you to contact a health care professional for more information.
The university will offer the Pfizer vaccine for free on campus at the vaccination events listed below. Everyone who gets vaccinated at these events will leave with Ole Miss swag while supplies last AND if you’ve already been vaccinated, you can come by one of these events and get your swag by showing proof of vaccination.
On-campus vaccination events
All vaccination events are in the Johnson Commons East Ballroom, near the Rebel Market.
- Tuesday, August 17, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
- Monday, August 23, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Vaccines are also available at the Health Center Pharmacy on the Oxford campus, weekdays, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Walk-ups are accepted, no appointment is necessary. Also, more opportunities for on-campus vaccine clinics will be announced as they are scheduled. Info about on- and off-campus vaccination can be found on the university's COVID website. If you cannot be vaccinated because you’re immunocompromised and need additional support, please reach out to the Office of Student Disability Services.
