ST. St. Louis (KMOV.com) – St. Louis University announced on Wednesday that all students and employees planning to stay on campus this fall will need to be vaccinated.
After reviewing the policies of other universities and reviewing feedback from health authorities, the university will implement three new requirements approximately 11 weeks before the start of the new semester.
- All students, staff, and faculty members physically present on the St. Louis campus require COVID-19 vaccination.
- Vaccination is also required for SLU St. Louis students studying outside the United States, including on the Madrid campus.
- Exemptions are granted for religious beliefs or medical circumstances.
“The details of how to implement this recommendation have been thoughtfully and carefully considered,” said Fred Pestello, president of SLU, with patience until the plan was finalized. “The vaccination certification and exemption process is one of the key operational issues to address. Except for specific timelines.”
Several mass vaccination events are held in St. Louis City, St. Louis County, and St. Charles. Click here for the guide To find the COVID-19 vaccine in the St. Louis region.
