Gov. Brian Kemp has announced the expansion of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to everyone in Georgia aged 16 and older effective tomorrow, March 25, making most university students, faculty and staff eligible for vaccination.

While we work through plans for an on-campus vaccination effort, those who wish to be vaccinated sooner are now eligible to schedule an appointment through the Augusta University Health website, with appointments available on Thursday, March 25, and Saturday, March 27. We strongly encourage all those traveling or gathering for Spring Break to consider receiving their first vaccine dose prior to leaving campus.

We will continue to provide information about opportunities to be vaccinated on campus as plans are finalized. Until then, I ask that you review the current guidance for vaccinated individuals in our FAQs and on our AU Health website.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the health of Jaguar Nation!
