As COVID-19 continues to spread in Ohio and across the country, leaders at The University of Toledo Medical Center are seeking to learn more about the vaccination rate within the campus community.
All current faculty, staff and students are invited to complete a voluntary short survey asking their vaccination status and role at The University of Toledo.
Responses to the survey are anonymous and not attributable to any individual. The survey does not ask for proof of vaccination or any personally identifying information. It does ask limited demographic questions.
The survey is available online now through May 3.
At this time, COVID-19 vaccination is not required by the University, but it is highly encouraged in order to advance the health and safety of employees, students, families and patients.
The University and UTMC have previously partnered to offer four vaccine clinics on Main Campus exclusively for faculty, staff and students.
UTMC also continues to distribute vaccines to the general public in partnership with the Ohio Department of Health.
Having a better idea of the percentage of students and employees who are vaccinated against COVID-19 will help inform decision-making about future vaccine clinics, and provide the University another important data point to assist in its pandemic response.
The state of Ohio opened vaccine eligibility to all individuals age 16 and above on March 29. As of April 19, all U.S. adults are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
Individuals who wish to be vaccinated are encouraged to visit the state’s vaccine scheduling portal to make an appointment at one of the community’s vaccination sites.
