University vaccination requirement

Vaccination is required for all Washington University employees and trainees across the Danforth and Medical Campuses. You are considered fully vaccinated when you are two weeks out from the final shot of your initial series. Two-dose vaccines are administered 21 (Pfizer) or 28 (Moderna) days apart.

Proof of full vaccination must be provided to ensure compliance with the policy. Students must provide proof of full vaccination by the start of their fall term.  If you were vaccinated through the university, your vaccination record is already on file and no action is required. If you were vaccinated elsewhere, including a BJC HealthCare public clinic, you must upload a picture or scan of your COVID-19 vaccination record in ReadySet. (Within ReadySet, click on “My Health” and then uploading the image in the “Documents” tab.)

Anyone who does not obtain and record their COVID-19 vaccination in ReadySet or receive an approved exemption will be suspended without pay for up to 30 days. If proof of vaccination is not provided at the end of the 30-day suspension, faculty, staff and trainees will be subject to further measures including termination.
