University System ‘Strongly Encourages’ COVID-19 vaccination

Statement from the University System of Georgia:

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the University System of Georgia has worked closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health and the Governor’s Office and Task Force to carry out its primary mission of educating students in a healthy and safe manner. 

Through effective planning, USG in the current academic year succeeded in providing in-person instruction and serving students.  We will take the same approach to the coming academic year.  Our campuses have directly administered thousands of vaccine doses and are continuing to work to vaccinate their communities.  We strongly encourage faculty, staff, students and visitors to get vaccinated and will continue to do so. 

While the vaccines are safe and effective, it is an individual decision to receive one and will not be required to be a part of our campuses.
