The UT conducted the survey to find out to how many staff members and students are protected against COVID-19. Based on the results, which were shared in an email sent out to the UT community today, over 91% of employees and almost 85% students are protected through vaccination. These numbers will even increase in the near future, because 2.6% of students and 2.8% of staff have already received the first jab.
Although highly indicative, these conclusions might not be absolutely accurate, as not everyone filled in the survey. The response rate was 45% among employees and 33% among students. ‘While we are cautious in our conclusions given the level of response, we are extremely pleased with this outcome,’ states the UT Executive Board in the email.
