As spring arrives here on our campus, we are reminded especially of the hope that comes with this season—and perhaps this year that hope and promise is even brighter with the growing availability of COVID-19 vaccinations here in Michigan and around the world.

There’s exciting and specific news in that regard for our campus. Already, a number of our employees and students have received at least one COVID-19 vaccination. Additionally, as you’ve read in the news recently, the U.S. has ambitious plans to widely expand qualifications for COVID-19 vaccinations as early as April 5 for those 16 and older.

Right now, we are working on arrangements for a vaccination clinic on our own campus (for those who are 16 and older) through Rite Aid as early as possible in April.

To help with planning for timely vaccination options for the Andrews University community before the school year ends, we’d like to invite you to take a few moments to complete a campus survey to help make sure we’re fully prepared. Please complete the online survey no later than March 31.

As you may also know, there are an increasing array of additional options to arrange for personal COVID-19 vaccinations here in Berrien County, including with Spectrum Health Lakeland and local pharmacies (Meijer, Rite Aid and Walgreens). You can find complete details on the Berrien County Health Department COVID-19 vaccination website.

Also, we wanted to remind you that if you have been vaccinated in an off-campus setting, please take a moment to record your vaccination here. You can also keep track of overall COVID-19 vaccine information for Andrews University here.

You have our sincere thanks, and our ongoing prayers and wishes for God’s blessings for you, your families and our Andrews University community, as we continue on this journey to respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
