Health Center Director Answers 4 Questions on Vaccines

University President Darryll J. Pines sent the following email to the campus community tonight:
As we continue to fight this pandemic, getting vaccinated is a key factor in protecting ourselves and each other from COVID-19.
I am thrilled that Gov. Larry Hogan announced yesterday that beginning today, April 6, all Marylanders 16 and older are eligible to get vaccinated at mass vaccination sites. In addition, by next Monday, April 12, all Marylanders 16 and older will be eligible to schedule appointments and get vaccinated through all providers.
This means that all UMD faculty and staff, and all UMD students in Maryland over the age of 16 are now eligible and should pre-register:
We strongly encourage every member of our community to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
Learn more about the importance of getting vaccinated from University Health Center Director Dr. Spyridon Marinopoulos:

Thank you for your continued compliance with the 4 Maryland guidelines, and please get vaccinated!
