Get Vaccinated

Last Updated: 7/29/2022

Vaccination Requirement

Every student not previously granted a medical or religious exemption is required to complete a primary series of Covid-19 vaccination and to provide documentation through the Health Services portal (students) or to Human Resources (employees). The first and second boosters are highly recommended upon eligibility, especially considering the continuing evolution of variants and sub-variants and diminishing natural immunity periods between infections. The University reserves the right to require additional boosters as determined necessary with advanced notice. No unvaccinated student may move into university housing, attend classes, participate in University programs, events and or activities, or begin employment without an approved medical or religious exemption from RWU. 

For Students Seeking Medical or Religious Exemptions to Decline COVID-19 Vaccine

Students who, for medical or religious reasons, decline to get the COVID-19 vaccine must submit the RWU COVID-19 Vaccine Exemption Request form. Medical exemption requests must be completed and signed by the student’s medical provider.

Upload this form under the “immunization record” option in the drop-down  Students will be notified of exemption approval status.
