While many Ontarians are now fully vaccinated, there is still some hesitancy among the province’s student population to get the jab before returning to campus this fall. 

The University of Windsor is collaborating with the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance, WE-Spark Health Institute and UWindsor researchers to launch and execute the “Knock Out COVID” vaccination advocacy campaign. The campaign is centered around helping students and other young people in the Windsor-Essex community get the facts and supports they need to overcome vaccine hesitancy and access vaccinations. 

Together, student leaders, researchers and community members will engage and empower students to get vaccinated which will help increase provincial immunization rates and ensure a safe return to campus in September.
