Commencement update

You’re probably wondering how updated guidance might affect Washington University’s Commencement ceremonies, which are planned for this month for the Classes of 2020 and 2021. We are making the following updates to the protocols that we had originally put in place for these events.

Pausing vaccine clinic for today

As you may have seen in the news this morning, the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration have recommended a “pause” in the administration of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

Volunteers needed!

With COVID-19 vaccination appointments now available through the university for all students, faculty, staff and family members ages 18 and over, we are in need of volunteers to help staff the vaccination clinic on the Medical Campus, with a critical need for April 12 and 13 from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.

COVID-19 vaccine now available for students

We are now ready to begin inviting all students to make appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through the university. If you have preregistered with the university, you will receive an invitation today to make an appointment starting tomorrow through April 13.

Planning for fall

We are planning to resume most of our on-campus activities in the fall. As always, the health and safety of our community will be our number one priority in all decisions.
