Effective immediately, the university’s hiring pause is being lifted as are all COVID-related restrictions on travel and visitors.
Through the collaboration of UF Health Screen, Test & Protect and the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County, more than 24,000 have been vaccinated at the Champions Club since April 5, including 5,100 on the first day. To facilitate access to the vaccine, we have worked with the health department to expand the capacity to do on-the-spot registration, clearing the path for walk-up appointments.
To address some of our community's most pressing questions related to COVID-19, UF Health has developed a variety of video resources. Please check this section regularly for updates.
