The University of Toledo will host a student-only COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Saturday, April 10.

The clinic will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium. Students will soon receive an email inviting them to register for the vaccine.

Appointments are required and the vaccine is available only to current UToledo students age 18 and older. Insurance information will be collected, but there will be no out-of-pocket expense for students. Students will be required to bring their Rocket ID to their appointment.

The University has been working closely with Gov. Mike DeWine and the state of Ohio to make COVID-19 vaccines directly available to students before they complete their spring coursework. Students who are vaccinated on April 10 will receive their second shot on Saturday, May 1, allowing them to receive the full dose ahead of the semester’s end on May 7.

While the University is not requiring the vaccine, it is highly encouraging all students and employees to get vaccinated in order to protect the health and safety of our entire campus community and help advance the University’s plans for returning to more traditional summer and fall terms later this year.

Appointments for the April 10 clinic will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Depending on demand and availability of vaccines, the University may schedule additional student-only vaccine clinics in the coming weeks.

The University, in partnership with The University of Toledo Medical Center, has previously held two mass vaccine clinics for students, faculty and staff.

Individuals who were unable to get the vaccine at those clinics and would like to be vaccinated against COVID-19 are encouraged to visit the Ohio Department of Health to review available appointments at community providers.
