The university said students should use an online form to report they’ve received their full COVID-19 vaccination and upload their vaccination record. Faculty and staff are not required to report their vaccinations.
“However, everyone reporting their full vaccination will help the University understand and manage more fully the pandemic on campus now and plan for the fall,” the university stated.
Along with the student clinic, any adult in Ohio including college students can seek a vaccine at another location.
A UD spokesman shared a link to a statement on the vaccine clinics but said the university would not be doing interviews.
The Catholic university stated online that the university was assigned the J&J dose. Providers are not able to pick which type of vaccine they are assigned.
The Vatican has advised that all the COVID-19 vaccines are morally acceptable.
All the vaccines in use relied during testing on some form on stem cells descended from cells harvested decades ago from early stage aborted fetuses, but the J&J vaccine used stem cells not only to test the vaccine in the lab, but also in production.
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops advised that if one has the ability to choose a vaccine, Pfizer or Moderna’s vaccines should be chosen over the J&J, but also that “given the world-wide suffering that this pandemic is causing” they affirmed that being vaccinated can be an act of charity that serves the common good.
