Immunization Requirements

COVID-19 Immunization Update

Since the beginning of the pandemic, the University has been committed to protecting the health, well-being, and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. COVID-19 vaccination is key to maintaining the health, safety, and normal operations of our community.

COVID-19 vaccination is required for all Xavier students (excluding students in fully-online graduate programs and APEX programs) in compliance with the University’s immunization policy. COVID-19 vaccination is now a required student immunization, joining MMR, Meningococcal Conjugate (ACWY), and Hepatitis B.

A COVID-19 booster dose is strongly recommended for all Xavier students but is not required.

COVID-19 vaccination and booster shots are available for anyone who is eligible at Xavier Health Services at the HUB. Schedule an appointment by calling 513-745-3022, option 3.

The University reserves the right to pivot on vaccination requirements in response to changing circumstances.

Vaccination aligns with our Jesuit Catholic mission and helps protect student health and well-being and that of the Xavier and broader communities. Appearing in a video with other Catholic faith leaders, Pope Francis shared, "Getting vaccinated is a simple yet profound way to care for one another, especially the most vulnerable. I pray to God that each one of us can make his or her own small gesture of love."

Xavier University has additional vaccine requirements for all First Year, new Transfer, and International Students. 

The only requirement of Graduate Students is being fully vaccinated with Covid-19 based on the CDC guidance, or having an approved exemption on file for it.
