UPDATE (April 6): In collaboration with the Clark County Combined Health District (CCCHD), Wittenberg will run an on-campus vaccination clinic for students on Thursday, April 8, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University’s Health, Wellness, and Athletics Complex. Students will receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which requires a second dose. We strongly encourage all students in our community to take advantage of this opportunity.
UPDATE (March 22): Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced an earlier-than-expected expansion to vaccine eligibility. Ohio's 1,300 vaccine providers are now permitted to distribute doses of the vaccines to individuals 16 and older if a county's supply allow it.
