The university strongly encourages the entire OU community to get vaccinated, particularly those living in congregate housing. COVID-19 vaccines are available to all students, faculty, and staff on all three OU campuses at no cost to the individual. Masking is also highly encouraged when indoors and/or in large groups of people.University of Oklahoma
The #OUVaccinates Program will also host vaccine clinic events, and share t-shirts, posters, and buttons to anyone in the campus community.
Students who are unvaccinated are encouraged to visit OU Health Services at Goddard Health Center or the OU-Tulsa Internal Medicine clinic for their no-cost inoculation.
