“Though we cannot forecast with certainty, we expect that the majority of our campus community will be eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine before the beginning of the fall semester,” UMD President Darryll Pines said in a statement Thursday.

Pines said the university has not yet gotten a supply of vaccines but will notify the campus community when it does and how they will be distributed.
