“[We] are intensifying our efforts to make the vaccines available to our students in response to the Commission on Higher Education and Department of Education requirements for vaccination of students and teachers, and staff to be able to return to face to face classes and online work,” the memo, released Dec. 6, read.

The vaccination program is only open to unvaccinated students and does not cover booster shots for fully vaccinated individuals and those who already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

AdMU said the vaccination is scheduled to start in January. UP Technohub and its Loyola Campus will be the venues for vaccination.

The University’s vaccination program is open to students aged 12 to 17 and above.
