The UO's student and employee vaccination clinics are nearly full. Those who were not able to schedule an appointment can put their name on a waitlist through the vaccine website. Vaccinations are also available through Lane County and other counties, health care providers, and pharmacies.
The heads of the university’s four major employment groups, along with President Michael Schill and other members of UO administrative leadership, are encouraging every member of the UO community to get a COVID-19 vaccination.
Tip of the Week: COVID-19 Vaccines are Safe
I am unavailable for a vaccination on the days offered through the university. How can I get vaccinated? UO vaccination clinics are one of several ways for you to get vaccinated. You can also schedule an appointment with your county public health agency, pharmacy, or health care provider to receive a vaccine.
There were 42 members of the UO community who tested positive or were considered presumptive positive in the last seven days (April 7-14). A total of 1,665 members of the UO community have tested positive for COVID-19 since reporting began. Case numbers are updated daily, Monday through Friday.
Cases are rising in Lane County. Social gatherings continue to be a leading cause of spread of the virus in our community. Please remember to wear masks, maintain distance, limit numbers of people, and socialize outside if not everyone is vaccinated.
COVID-19 testing is fast, free, and easy. It is available for all asymptomatic UO employees, students, and residents of Lane County age 3 and older. Pre-registration is required via the Monitoring and Assessment Program (MAP) registration portal.
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention outline some general precautions to minimize the spread of respiratory diseases.
