During this challenging time, Mount St. Joseph University is pleased to be able to do its part to help stop the spread of the virus and increase the health of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the Delhi community. 

On March 25, the University is administering the first dose of the two-phase Pfizer vaccine. The second round of shots will be given on April 15. Within 24 hours of announcing this opportunity, all 1,000 slots had been claimed by eligible residents in southwest Ohio. 

"The Mount takes its role as a community partner very seriously, especially during what has been a trying and difficult time for all of us," says Mount St. Joseph University President Dr. H. James Williams, Ph.D. "That is why we are excited and honored to partner with Mercy Health to provide the COVID vaccine. The availability and distribution of the vaccine - along with live graduation this spring and a planned return to in-person classes for our fall semester - gives us hope that we are slowly and safety returning to normal."

For employees and students who were not eligible this week, the Mount is working with Mercy Health West to schedule another on-campus event in early April. They can also sign up their family during the Mount's preferred window if they meet the criteria. There is no out-of-pocket expense, but Mercy does request insurance information, and an invoice may be sent to insurance companies. Those receiving the vaccine do not have to be Ohio residents, but they must be 40 years of age or older with certain occupations or medical conditions. An eligibility check can be found at the Ohio Department of Health.
