Additional Information About Vaccinations

Sent Tuesday, April 6, 2021

As you may know, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has included higher education employees among those populations approved to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in our state effective April 5. This is an opportunity for our faculty and staff to become vaccinated, and I strongly encourage everyone to do so in accordance with state guidelines.

Earlier today, RBHS Chancellor Brian Strom sent an email to the university community regarding the launch of a vaccination portal for the Rutgers community. Whether you have received one vaccination dose or two, you are encouraged to share your COVID-19 vaccination record through this portal, or use the portal to express your interest in being vaccinated at Rutgers if you are still waiting to be inoculated. This information will allow Rutgers to better prepare to administer vaccinations on each campus when the state provides vaccines to the university.

If you have not yet been vaccinated, please register with New Jersey’s scheduling system. There are numerous locations offering the vaccine across our state, including the Camden County site at Blackwood, where Rutgers School of Nursing–Camden students and faculty are helping to administer the vaccine to tens of thousands of regional residents. While Rutgers is preparing for the moment when we are able to offer vaccinations on our campus, it is recommended that you act now and schedule a vaccination appointment at the mega site, pharmacy, or health care provider of your choosing.

I am looking forward to being able to meet with colleagues and friends on our campus soon. I am certain that many of you are, too. Adherence to public health guidelines will help us to achieve that goal together.

Margaret Marsh, Ph.D.
Interim Chancellor
