UMD faculty, staff and graduate assistants who are teaching in person or working on campus in essential roles are included in phases 1B and 1C under the state's vaccination distribution plan for higher education. According to guidance from the University System of Maryland, eligible employees are those who are regularly on campus in the following positions and departments:
Students living on campus, in College Park or in the state of Maryland who meet the criteria for one of the high-risk groups in phase 1A, 1B or 1C not related to higher education may be eligible to receive the vaccine off-campus.
All students are encouraged to regularly check the vaccine distribution plan in their local area or state to determine if or when you are eligible and to find instructions for how to register for the vaccine.
It is important to continue following the 4 Maryland healthy behaviors even after being vaccinated. Wearing a mask, physical distancing, washing your hands, and getting tested every two weeks are still expected of everyone coming to campus.
