Upcoming Webinar: Vaccinations and the Loyola Community

February 24, 2021

Dear Loyolans,

We invite you to join us for an upcoming webinar, Vaccinations and the Loyola Community, next Thursday, March 4 at 4 p.m. Central time. Sponsored by the University Senate, the webinar will cover COVID-19 vaccination and Loyola’s plans to support the health of our community.

Specifically, Loyola University Chicago public health experts and administrators will discuss the following:

  • The science of COVID-19 vaccines, safety and efficacy of vaccines types, symptoms following vaccination, and the impact of COVID-19 variants on vaccine effectiveness

  • Vaccine distribution, such as who is eligible to receive the vaccine and how to find a vaccination location. As we recently shared, the city of Chicago’s current guidance will allow for most Loyola faculty and staff who have not already been vaccinated to be vaccinated in Phase 1C. Most students will be eligible in Phase 2. We encourage anyone eligible for the vaccine to schedule a vaccination as soon as they can.

  • What vaccination means for Loyolans, including continued mitigation of COVID-19 with all Required Personal Safety Practices and continued required participation in on-campus surveillance testing

Please register here today and submit your questions in advance. Although the webinar is geared toward faculty and staff, students and their families are also welcome to attend. For those who cannot attend the live webinar, a recording will be available following the event.

We look forward to you joining us next Thursday.

Together in Loyola,
