Vaccination Requirements for 2022-23 Academic Year

Whitworth University has the following vaccine requirements for all students (undergraduate, continuing studies and graduate) prior to their arrival to campus for the fall and spring semesters. Current vaccination requirements are measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), COVID-19 (primary series), and meningococcal*. Vaccination information must be submitted via the health center portal.

*Meningococcal only applies to full-time undergraduate students.

COVID-19 Vaccination/Booster

Whitworth University complies with the Washington State Department of Health’s (DOH) requirement to be a “fully vaccinated campus.” To meet this requirement for the 2022-23 school year, all in-person students are required to be fully vaccinated with a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) approved vaccine (World Health Organization (WHO) for international students). Boosters are strongly encouraged but are not required by the DOH to be considered a “fully vaccinated campus.”

Based on the recommendations of numerous public health agencies, Whitworth believes that the best way for the campus to stay safe is to require COVID-19 vaccination of its students and employees. However, our compliance with the DOH requirement stipulates that we provide students an option to decline participation in this vaccine requirement. The opportunity to decline the vaccination is available on the student health portal. If you have any additional questions please reach out to the health center via the contact information provided on this home page.
