Miami students will be notified by email on how to sign up. The Miami spokesperson noted the vaccine is voluntary and not required, however, it’s strongly encouraged.

Miami University has received 3,500 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine from the State of Ohio that are designated for students.

“Vaccination is one of the most important tools we have to manage the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Steve Large, assistant vice president of health and wellness for Student Life. “We are full of both hope and gratitude to be able to provide these vaccines thanks to the work of Governor Mike DeWine and his office.”
