Increasing our Vaccination Rate

Submitted by Kris Boone, boone.3@osu.edu

We are seeking your help increasing our reported vaccination rate. To support our public health efforts, we are asking students, faculty and staff to voluntarily report if they have been vaccinated. 

We know that there are many vaccinated students, faculty and staff for whom we do not currently have data, so any estimates under-represent our true vaccination rate. 

Increasing reporting will improve our accuracy and allow us to better support underrepresented portions of our community. We also want to motivate vaccination and reporting now so that we can make decisions in advance of autumn semester.

Please help us promote the following reporting options, and to emphasize the importance of good data to inform our public health response:

  • Faculty and staff can report through a simple online form.
  • Students can report through the My BuckMD portal managed by Student Life Student Health Services.
