In response to the need to fulfill our social responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infections, Ritsumeikan University has decided to begin offering vaccinations on campus in early July to help reduce the burden of administering vaccines on local governments, to protect the life and safety of students, faculty, and staff, and to ensure everyone can take classes and lead their lives on campus with peace of mind.

Please carefully read the COVID-19 Vaccination Instructions and the following guidelines and discuss the matter with your family before you make your reservation.
If you are under the age of 20, you will need to have a guardian complete a consent form in order to receive a vaccination. To protect the lives and health of our students, faculty, and staff and help ensure effective herd immunity, we are cooperating with the workplace vaccination initiative in response to the national government’s policy, but vaccinations are entirely optional and are not required. If you do not receive the vaccine, you will face no disadvantages when making use of the university's systems and programs.
