Presidential Message: University-based COVID-19 booster vaccination (3rd time)

As outlined in the attached document, MuroranIT starts university-based COVID-19 booster vaccination (third time) from June 18, 2022, to contain the spread of infection.


Last year, as the initial vaccination rate for our students, faculty members and staff reached almost 90%, we were able to smoothly conduct in-person classes, job hunting and extracurricular activities. In order to minimize the risk of infection on campus and create a safe environment for educational and research activities, we have decided to implement university-based COVID-19 booster shot. However, please note that the third time vaccination is not mandatory and will be conducted via reservation system for those who wish to get a booster shot. We would like to emphasize that any forms of discrimination against unvaccinated people will not be tolerated.


Since the start of the new academic year, we have witnessed increasing number of infected cases and close contacts resulting from activities in group such as dinner, karaoka and so on.
If you wish to receive the third vaccination early, please consider taking it at the venue designated by local government. There is no need to wait for the booster shot on campus.


We would like as many people as possible to get vaccinated so that we can return to normal life. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
