UW COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Updated September 9, 2021 at 9:49 a.m.

The University of Washington's COVID-19 Vaccination Policy is being updated.

Governor Jay Inslee announced on August 18 that personnel at higher education institutions, K-12 schools and childcare providers will be added to his previous order mandating COVID-19 vaccinations.

To meet the state mandate for being fully vaccinated by October 18, personnel need to initiate their vaccination as soon as possible, and then complete their attestation form when fully vaccinated. All incoming and returning students must complete their vaccination attestation before beginning their coursework, and all personnel must do so before working on-site at a UW campus or facility.

Visit the University's COVID-19 vaccination requirement webpage for more information.

UW Medicine medical center employees should follow the UW Medicine COVID-19 vaccination policy.
