It’s #WorthAShot: Campus is encouraged to get vaccine
With vaccines being available to anyone aged 16 or older in Wisconsin, the entire campus community is encouraged to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
President Scott Bierman, Provost Eric Boynton, and Dean of Students Cecil Youngblood sent a message to the community urging campus all to get the vaccine when they are able to.
“To be a fully in-person residential campus filled with activities, sports, theater, dance, and music, we need to be vaccinated. As the vaccine rollout continues, we encourage your full participation to give us the best shot at being together, in person, on campus. Get the vaccine. It’s how we will be able to be together, and share in the experience that makes Beloit, Beloit.”
