Message for students regarding vaccinations

AVOID MORE TESTS!

Students who receive the COVID-19 vaccine are eliminated from UF’s routine COIVD-19 testing, which is required every two weeks for a number of student groups this summer and into the fall. Get your vaccine, and that will be one less test you have to worry about! Find more information on UF routine testing here and schedule either first or second-dose vaccines at ONE.UF.
