NOTE: University leadership has set a goal of an 85% vaccination rate among students, faculty and staff. In order to track this, OU community members will need to upload their vaccination cards to Graham Health Center's secure patient portal. Not only will this ensure that we are tracking COVID protection accurately on campus, but every person who uploads this information by Sept. 30 will receive $100 either in their paycheck or within their student account. This incentive will show up in accounts after the Sept. 30 deadline. The link to the patient portal can be found here: https://www.oakland.edu/ghc/
