Is the university requiring students to get the vaccine?
Yes. All Washington University students on the Danforth and Medical Campuses will be required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Students must be fully vaccinated before they arrive on campus for the start of their fall academic term or August 30, whichever comes first. See the April 28 message to students for more information.

What about faculty and staff?
We continue to strongly encourage our faculty and staff to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and we expect to provide more information for employees in the coming weeks.

Who at the university is eligible to receive the vaccine?
COVID-19 vaccination appointments are now available through the university for all Washington University students, faculty and staff and their family members ages 16 and older.

Which vaccine is the university administering?
In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Food and Drug Administration, on April 13 we “paused” administering the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine. We have since been administering Pfizer vaccines at our university clinics.

How do I make an appointment?
If you pre-registered through the university (this is different from pre-registering through BJC or other organizations), you should have received an email invitation to make an appointment. If you haven’t preregistered, you may do so now and you will receive an invitation promptly. Click here to preregister.

We also encourage you to continue to preregister yourself and family members through BJC and other organizations and take the first appointment that becomes available.

Who can I contact with a question about my vaccine appointment?
You can email with questions about your registration or appointment.
