COVID-19 Immunization Update
The highly transmissible Delta variant is driving a resurgence of COVID-19 cases across the country, including in our region. Young and otherwise healthy people are experiencing a more direct impact from this strain of the virus. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Xavier has remained steadfast in our commitment to protecting the health, wellbeing, and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, a commitment that drives the University's vaccination decision.
With the full FDA approval of a COVID-19 vaccine, Xavier University will now require all students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the start of the spring 2022 semester. There will be two deadlines related to this proof of immunization:
- Prior to October 18, 2021, students will be required to show proof of having received either full or partial (ie. first dose of a two-dose protocol) vaccination. Students who do not demonstrate this will not be permitted to register for classes for the spring 2022 semester.
- By January 3, 2022, students must complete their second dose and verify their full vaccination, if applicable (ie. Pfizer or Moderna), or they will be canceled from their spring 2022 classes.
Xavier University has additional vaccine requirements for all First Year, new Transfer, and International Students.
