The university’s decision to require its community to receive a COVID-19 booster is rooted in the goal of minimizing community spread of the virus, limiting containment efforts, and minimizing possible disruptions to the academic term to keep the campus community together for another successful term of providing a vibrant Michigan experience.

The decision was made with the input and consideration of a large committee of campus and public health experts and supported by university leadership, and is in alignment with the recommendations of national organizations (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American College Health Association).
