Featured FAQ

When will vaccinations begin for UO faculty, staff, and students?
We do not yet have an estimate of when higher education employees or students will become eligible to receive vaccines at this time. We continue to work closely with public health officials about how faculty, staff, and students fit into vaccine distribution sequencing. The latest information about state vaccine distribution is on the Oregon Health Authority’s vaccine sequencing webpage.

It is possible UO employees or students may become eligible to receive a vaccine due to personal circumstances through a health care provider, pharmacy, or public health clinic before it is available through the university’s process.
