Why should I get the COVID-19 vaccine?

All three of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States have been shown to be highly effective at preventing COVID-19. Getting vaccinated may also protect people around you, particularly those at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Taking the vaccine is the best opportunity to keep our professors, students and staff healthy as we work to reduce transmission of the deadly virus. It’s also the quickest way to return our University to its regular operations.
