Currently, the COVID-19 vaccination plan outlined by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is operating in Phase 1B. Further information about this phase can be found here at COVID-19 Update: Phase 1 Vaccination Distribution Plan, Quarantine Guidance.
The COVID-19 Response Team (CRT) receives weekly updates from the Clark County Combined Health District (CCCHD) regarding the ODH vaccination plan operations and eligibility. The CRT intends to update the campus community regarding changes as soon as the information is available.
UPDATE: On Jan. 14, 2020, in conjunction with Ohio’s statewide efforts to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to Ohioans in Phase 1B starting the week of Jan. 19, the Clark County Combined Health District and the Clark County Emergency Management Agency are partnering to lead the vaccination efforts.

In anticipation of possible questions from our community, we are providing the following answers:
- Wittenberg University will not mandate vaccines for students or employees in spring of 2021.
- Wittenberg University employees have the option to share if they have been vaccinated for COVID-19. Should employees choose to do so, please email email@example.com.
- Wittenberg University continues to explore expectations for students to report receipt of a COVID-19 vaccine.
- Even if you receive two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, everyone must continue to use all the tools available to us to stop the pandemic. This includes continuing to cover your mouth and nose with a mask, washing hands often, and staying at least 6 feet away from others.
