The flu vaccine is required for all students who must provide proof of a recent influenza vaccination, or submit an exemption for medical or religious reasons. Per a November 2020 email to employees from HR, all employees will be required to receive a flu vaccine for the 2020/21 academic year no later than January 15, 2021, if working on campus at any time, or will need to be on the DePauw campus periodically.
Exemptions from this requirement, included the following:
- Not working on campus, or being on campus at any time during this academic year,
- Medical exemption,
- Religious reason, or
- Philosophical reason.
On-campus vaccination clinics will be provided at no cost to DePauw community members or individuals can make an appointment with the DePauw Health Wellness Center.
These recommendations and requirements will be updated as new information about the virus develops and we monitor and evaluate data. (last updated 1.12.21)
