Hartford Seminary is among the first group of colleges and universities to participate in the COVID-19 College Vaccination Challenge put on by the White House and the U.S. Department of Education.
The effort is part of President Joe Biden’s push to get as many American vaccinated as possible, including younger Americans who have been receiving the vaccine at lower rates.
Colleges, universities, and graduate schools participating in the challenge have agreed to:
1. Engage every student, faculty, and staff member. Make sure every member of the campus
community knows they are eligible for vaccine and has resources to find one.
2. Organize the college community. Lead the way by identifying champions for vaccine efforts
across campus and implementing a plan to get as many members of the college community
vaccinated as possible.
3. Deliver vaccine access for all. Meet the community where it is: bring vaccines on-site, and make it easy for students, staff, and faculty to get vaccinated sites nearby them this summer.
