OSU intends to implement a COVID-19 vaccination requirement beginning fall term 2021 for students and employees who learn, work or engage on campus.

It's Our Turn to Get Vaccinated

We can each contribute to a safer and healthier campus community by getting our COVID-19 vaccine. On May 4, 2021, OSU announced its intent to require COVID-19 vaccinations for students and employees who learn, work or engage with others in-person during classes or university activities. Students can now comply with this policy by confirming their vaccination status through the Student Health Services Patient Portal. Information on seeking exemptions to this requirement will be available by July 9, 2021. Students must comply with this requirement by Sept.15, 2021.

Did You Know?

  • The COVID-19 vaccine has gone through careful testing in large clinical trials. The FDA’s emergency use enables drug companies to mass produce and distribute the vaccine. After people receive the vaccine, they are monitored for side effects for 15-30 minutes.
  • Even if you have had COVID-19, you should still receive a vaccine when it becomes available to you. There is not enough evidence to tell how long someone is immune to the virus after contracting and recovering from COVID-19. 
  • If you have received a first dose of a vaccine that requires two shots, the second shot can be given at a different clinic. However, the second dose must be the same vaccine manufacturer as the first shot. You cannot receive a different manufacturer’s vaccine. Make sure to bring your white vaccination card to your second-dose appointment to verify that you received the first dose and its manufacturer.
