As we are preparing for our first full fall semester, the State University System Chancellor, Chair and Presidents urge all students to become vaccinated.
UF is preparing for its first full fall semester schedule since the COVID-19 pandemic began. We urge the entire university community – students, faculty, staff, and their families – to become vaccinated, if they have not already done so. The vaccine is free, readily available, safe, and effective. It gives us the ability to restore normal operations to the university this fall.
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.
