More than 70 percent of the entire University of Nebraska–Lincoln community are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

As reported through the university’s voluntary registry on Sept. 16, 84% of faculty/instructors, 76% of staff and 72% of students (those participating in on-campus courses this fall) have completed the vaccination process.

The totals — which follow on-campus, second-shot Pfizer vaccination clinics held on Sept. 16 — show continued growth of participation in the university’ voluntary vaccine registry. A previous report, released Sept. 3, showed 81% participation by faculty/instructors, 74% staff and 69% students.

The university’s Voluntary COVID-19 Vaccine Registry continues to be offered to the campus community. Students, faculty and staff who participate in the registry are exempt from the university’s weekly COVID-19 testing protocol.

Huskers not yet fully-vaccinated are encouraged to complete vaccination against COVID-19. The vaccine is available through the University Health Center or community-based options.
