ADHE Releases Partial Vaccination Numbers for Campus Community
The Arkansas Division of Higher Education recently released an update regarding the number of students, faculty and staff at the U of A who are Arkansas residents and have received one or more vaccination doses in Arkansas.
Please note: These numbers do not include students and other members of our campus community who are out-of-state residents, international students or who have been vaccinated in other states. That data is not available at this time.
The report is positive for the U of A in that at the very minimum, more than 74 percent of all employees — and almost 69 percent of Arkansas-resident students — have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
