On Campus Student COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics Begin April 7

As part of a program announced by Gov. Mike DeWine, Kent State will be receiving a large quantity of the one-shot Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines. It is the governor’s desire to see all university students vaccinated before they leave for summer break. This additional vaccine opportunity allows us to stay true to our Flashes Safe Eight safety protocols.

We strongly encourage all students to get vaccinated. Beginning Wednesday, April 7, 2021, vaccination clinics for Kent State students will be held on the Ashtabula Campus and others.  Dean Stocker has a special message encouraging students to register now to schedule an appointment.

Faculty members are asked to be flexible with verified student class absences due to students receiving the vaccine.
