Ohio State announces COVID-19 vaccination requirement transition
Campus community encouraged to keep vaccinations up-to-date
The Ohio State University
The Ohio State University announced today (April 24) that the university will no longer require COVID-19 vaccination for students, faculty and staff, except those who are subject to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) or other professional requirements.
All campus community members are strongly encouraged to stay up-to-date on vaccinations as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and to share their vaccination status and boosters with the university using the HIPAA-compliant tools the university provides.
This transition coincides with the upcoming expiration of the federal public health emergency, is in response to changes in the FDA’s Emergency Use Authorization of COVID-19 vaccinations and is compliant with Ohio law.
