Many state and county vaccination sites are now providing walk-in services in an effort to make getting vaccinated easier and more convenient. Officials have announced that administration of a second dose does not need to take place at the same site as the first. In addition, this week UB moved forward with provision of a limited supply of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine by appointment to students who work or live on campus.
UB will celebrate the achievements of this year’s graduates in person, with several measures in place to minimize risks. Participants are urged to familiarize themselves with the requirements in advance.
Effective immediately, individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (i.e., those who are two weeks past their final dose of an authorized vaccine) no longer need to wear a face covering outdoors on campus while alone or in small outdoor groups and gatherings. Face coverings are still required in crowded outdoor settings and venues (e.g., commencement ceremonies), as well as inside all UB buildings, classrooms, labs and facilities and on campus transportation.
