Dear WVU Faculty and Instructors:
West Virginia University will receive an additional supply of COVID-19 vaccines from the West Virginia Joint Interagency Task Force in the coming weeks, and the University is working to provide doses to employees and students who indicated they want a vaccine.
Beginning later today (March 30), all employees and students based in Morgantown who are aged 18 or older and previously completed a WVU questionnaire expressing interest in receiving a vaccine will receive an email to register and schedule an appointment at the Student Recreation Center via the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).
Employees and students are encouraged to schedule their appointments promptly. All appointment times will be on a first-come, first-served basis, and time slots may fill up quickly.
Employees and students who received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Greater Monongalia County COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on Thursday, March 25, will receive their second dose at that same location.
However, moving forward, all additional first- and second-dose appointments through the University will take place at the Student Recreation Center.
Students are expected to communicate with their instructors if the vaccine appointment available to them conflicts with the time their classes are scheduled. We ask that you be flexible and understanding if a student is unable to attend class due to a first or second vaccine dose appointment. We want as many of our students and faculty as possible to be vaccinated, and this is the best opportunity to be vaccinated prior to the end of the spring semester.
If possible, please communicate to your students the opportunity for them to sign up for a vaccine. Feel free to use the PDF slide at the beginning of your class or to send directly to your students.
If you have not yet received your vaccine and haven’t completed a WVU questionnaire expressing your interest, you still may do so at: go.wvu.edu/covid-vaccine-survey.
If you have already completed a prior WVU questionnaire, you don’t need to complete a new survey.
However, if you have previously completed a WVU questionnaire and have decided not to receive a vaccine or have been vaccinated elsewhere, please complete this form so your allocated dose can be provided to someone else.
The University strongly recommends all students and employees be vaccinated for COVID-19. If you have questions about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, the University suggests speaking with your primary care physician or a representative from WVU Medicine Student Health. Those administering vaccines at the Student Rec Center can also answer any questions you may have during your appointment.
