A high rate of vaccination among our students, faculty and staff supports the safety and well-being of our community and the communities in which we operate, especially as we engage in in-person learning, research, and outreach. This site will have the most up to date information for the COVID-19 vaccine and what you can do to become vaccinated.
On Dec. 28, 2021, the university announced that COVID-19 booster shots would be required as part of its Vaccination Program Requirement. OSU requires that all students and employees not eligible for an exemption be up-to-date on their vaccination sequences. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) defines being up-to-date as having received a booster or a second vaccine dose of Moderna within the past six months; a booster or second dose of the Pfizer vaccine within the past five months; or receipt of an initial dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the past two months.
All OSU students and employees who are currently eligible for their booster must be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccine doses by Feb. 15, 2022. Please upload your proof of up-to-date vaccination on SHS’s secure Patient Portal. OSU students and employees who are not yet eligible for boosters are required to obtain their booster within 30 days after becoming eligible. Visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website to learn more about booster eligibility.
We believe vaccines will help our return to a more normal state of operations. OSU implemented a COVID-19 vaccination requirement beginning fall term 2021 for students who participated in-person in university activities, including learning, research and engagement. Students are expected to confirm they have been vaccinated; you may upload your vaccination documentation at beav.es/confirmvax.
