Vaccinations becoming widely available

Hello, Aanii, Bonjour, 

Since the very beginning of the pandemic, we have anticipated a time when a vaccine would become available to the general public. Presently, after months of patience, we have reached a point where most people in Ontario will be eligible to receive a first dose of the vaccine. 

This turning point in the fight against the pandemic is significant. I strongly encourage all students, staff, faculty, and community members who are able to receive their first dose of the vaccine, to do so as soon as possible. Based on the provincial rollout plan, we anticipate that by September, most of our community members will have had the opportunity to receive their first dose of the vaccine and many will have received their second dose. The potential for high vaccination rates increases our ability to deliver the in-person experiences that we all miss at Laurentian University. 

Finally, to our students and parents of students, I would like you to know that we will do all we can to create a safe environment for the Fall Semester and beyond. Our teams are diligently planning how we will be able to do this while providing the excellent student experience you all deserve.  

Thank you, Merci, Miigwech
