 Starting with Suzaku Campus, Ritsumeikan is already offering workplace vaccination boosters in an effort to continue protecting the life and safety of students, faculty, staff, and Academy stakeholders.

[Start date: Monday, April18, 10:00] * Reservations for the Suzaku Campus venue are currently being accepted.

Also, be sure to read through Section 6 (“Items for confirmation before reservation”) before you make your reservation.
