PULLMAN (AP) — Washington State University will require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations this fall for students and employees.
University President Kirk Schulz made the announcement Wednesday, The Spokesman-Review reported.
He said exemptions will be allowed for medical, religious or personal reasons. Students who are participating in fully online or remote programs are automatically exempted.
The requirement includes Washington State University Pullman students living in university housing. Proof of vaccination from those students will need to be submitted by Aug. 6.
More than 100 colleges and universities nationally have announced vaccination requirements for students and/or employees, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
