CVODI-19 Vaccine Bottle on table

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

All students, faculty, and staff must be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus before returning for the 2023 - 2024 academic year. The requirement has been put in place by the President and Senior Administration in consultation with the University Action and Response Team based on the following:

  • COVID vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer) have full FDA authorization and have been proven to be safe and effective.
  • Vaccine requirements achieve high immunization coverage and protect communities from infection rates and the severity of the disease. The St. Thomas community vaccination rate is over 90%.
  • Religious and medical exemptions are permitted.

At this time, St. Thomas is not requiring COVID-19 boosters to live, work or attend classes on campus, although the university will continue monitoring the overall situation and make policy adjustments as needed.

If you do not get the COVID-19 vaccination or apply for an exemption, a hold will be placed on your account, and you will not be able to register for classes
