More2gether Vaccination Campaign

More2gether -- StFX's drive to encourage vaccinations

Over the last number of weeks, both federal and provincial governments have shared encouraging news regarding accelerated timelines for vaccine delivery and distribution, with some jurisdictions going as far to project that most of their citizens could receive two doses of vaccine by the end of the summer. Although the timeline for all jurisdictions to receive two doses remains less certain, the message shared by public health officials has been clear: the COVID-19 vaccine is our path towards a return to normalcy. 

With this in mind, today StFX University is launching an awareness campaign encouraging all students and employees to get their two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine at first opportunity. The More2gether campaign aims to amplify the message that has already been shared by public health officials in Nova Scotia: the more people in our communities who are vaccinated, the more quickly we can return to normal life with fewer restrictions. This is especially important as we look forward to the upcoming academic year, recognizing that students, faculty, and teaching staff alike are eager to safely resume many of the immersive community, teaching, and research opportunities put on hold because of COVID-19.

Although taking the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandated for employees and students returning to campus, the university is strongly recommending that all members of the StFX community follow the advice of public health officials and receive two doses of an approved vaccine at the first available opportunity.  It is understood that not all of our campus community may have access to vaccines, but the university remains committed to working with the province to do everything possible to assist those who arrive to StFX with fewer than two doses. We will keep the campus community updated as we learn more over the summer.
