As the world responds to the next steps in the fight against COVID, colleges and universities are turning their eyes towards vaccination efforts.
Colleges and universities are deep in the trenches of vaccination efforts. Some schools are opting to require all students to be fully vaccinated before the end of the year. Others are encouraging students to get vaccinated but are not officially mandating the policy (Patel, 2021). Whether your school has made a decision yet or is somewhere in between, EesySoft can help spread the word on vaccination.
Many schools have opted to let local health officials handle the vaccination effort. In order to speed this process along, this EesySoft Message has been placed into the Universe:
Other universities have opted to use their campus space to host mass-vaccination efforts. The Chronicle of Higher Education cited that large universities could be the key to helping bring the pandemic under control (Patel, 2021). These universities have formed a relationship between local health officials and the university to find volunteers, IT support, and a vaccination site--- a win-win for both the university and local community!
This EesyMessage (also in the Universe) is designed to help the campus community receive vaccinations or to volunteer in the event effort.
What is your institution’s plan for vaccination? We are ready to work with you to design custom messaging that is in line with your university’s official communication plan to protect your campus and the larger community. Do you already have a stellar EesySoft example that promotes vaccination efforts? Submit these to the Universe or talk to your Customer Success Manager for assistance.
