We all know what to expect from the normal fall return to campus experience: eating together with friends, breathing crisp autumn air, cheering at a football game, meeting new people in our in-person classes…

As vaccines for COVID-19 became widely available this spring, we thought that normalcy was guaranteed by this fall.

It’s still within reach, but we are now racing against the Delta variant—more contagious, more likely to infect younger people, and fully capable of disrupting that normal return to life that we all want.

Fortunately, all three of the vaccines in use in the U.S.―all extensively safety tested and authorized for use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration―are effective against the variant. That’s why we have the Get the Vax campaign.
  • Vaccination is free. Everywhere to everyone. It is available on the Twin Cities through Boynton Health, or you can find vaccination sites statewide via the MN Vaccine Connector.
Let’s do something together now so we can all meet together in the fall. Grab a friend (or friends), make an appointment, and protect yourselves, protect each other, by getting vaccinated now.
