The University of Maine System has launched a “This Is Our Shot, Maine” vaccination drive and we’re reaching out to all UMPI students, faculty, and staff to help.
Now that people age 5 and older can get their COVID-19 vaccines, we’re working together to encourage as many students and employees as possible to get vaccinated, so we can have the safest year possible.
— UMPI President Ray Rice
