Today, the UVM Board of Trustees Executive Committee unanimously endorsed our plan to require COVID-19 vaccination for all students enrolled this fall. We considered many factors while making this decision, but none was more important than the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and the Burlington community.
Already, more than 6,000 students have reported their vaccination status in our student portal. The university is requiring students to complete this step by August 1. We urge you to make every effort to complete your vaccination and report it in the student portal.
UVM Student Health Services and other student services teams are working on policy details of the vaccination requirement. You will receive those details next week.
Together with the faculty and staff, we look forward to welcoming you next month.
