“Our plans are predicated on continuing public health strategies to promote a safe campus and community,” JHU President Ronald J. Daniels, Provost Sunil Kumar, and Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Mary Miller wrote in a message over the weekend. “Ensuring that the overwhelming percentage of our community’s population is vaccinated will greatly reduce the risk of the virus’s spread on our campuses and will also protect our neighbors in Baltimore.”
The university also said it will help students get vaccinated as soon as they get to campus if they’re unable to get a vaccine in their home jurisdictions. They also said they’re working to make on-campus vaccinations available for the Hopkins community.
