For Spring 2023, all students, faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. One of the best strategies we have to prevent serious complications from COVID-19, including hospitalizations and death, is the COVID-19 vaccine. New students and employees are able to request an exemption due to medical or religious reasons. All unvaccinated individuals with an approved exemption are required to follow all COVID-19 protocols related to their exemption. New students are provided information about deadlines for exemptions or submitting of vaccine records for each semester once they are accepted. At this time, WP is not requiring boosters; however, it is strongly recommended that you receive a booster if you are eligible.
