Weber State Vaccine Requirement Statement to Media

This communication was sent campuswide Aug. 27, 2021.

Faculty and Staff,

The following statement was shared with local media outlets Friday evening:

Weber State University has received guidance from the Utah System of Higher Education encouraging college and university presidents to consider requiring COVID-19 vaccines on their campuses with allowable exemptions for religious, medical and personal reasons. 

Weber State will work on a vaccination requirement to be implemented this fall that will require students to be vaccinated prior to spring semester.

As a USHE institution, we want to do our part to help the state combat increasing rates of infection and hospitalizations.

Details about the requirement — and the process — will be shared with students, staff and faculty next week.
