Check Out the Results of Miami University, UC’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

Brady Evans, a senior from Milford, watches as Professor Jane Sojka teaches her professional sales class at the Lindner College of Business on the University of Cincinnati campus on Monday, August 23, 2021.

The deadline for students and employees at two of the Cincinnati region’s largest universities to get their COVID-19 vaccinations has passed. Compliance rates at Miami University and the University of Cincinnati vary between main and regional campuses and among students, faculty, and staff.

In Miami, compliance rates were higher among students than among employees, with Miami staff having the highest unvaccinated rate at 7.68%, according to university data.

The opposite was true at UC, where officials struggled to gain compliance from about 40% of students enrolled at the university’s Blue Ash and Clermont campuses.

“As a result, the COVID team continues to engage in dialogue with non-compliant members of the UC community to ensure a safer environment for all,” a recent email to UC staff reads.
