COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Vaccinations have begun for certain members of our campus communities as part of state and county-wide efforts. Minnesota’s vaccine rollout plan has prioritized healthcare workers–such as our nursing students who are supporting the vaccination efforts– front-line workers and those who are at higher risk.

Additionally, it’s important to note that states and counties are managing vaccine distribution differently. Members of the WSU community may get vaccinated on different timelines based on where they work, live, and attend classes, among other personal circumstances.

As WSU follows the State of Minnesota’s various phases for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, WSU Health & Wellness Services is registered and ready to administer the vaccine to both students and employees on campus once we get to the appropriate phase.

It is strongly recommended that you get a COVID-19 vaccine when you are eligible to do so.

At this time, WSU does not have a policy requiring students, faculty or staff to get COVID-19 vaccines.

When

We don’t have an exact date for when the WSU campus community can get COVID-19 vaccines.

The State of Minnesota State has a COVID-19 vaccine roll-out plan with phases to prioritize those with highest risk. Members of the WSU community may get vaccinated on different timelines based on where they work, live, and attend classes, among other personal circumstances.

There is very high demand for the vaccine, but currently limited doses available across the state. 

Please be patient, and continue to mask up, back up and wash up.

Where

Students and employees will be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine from Health & Wellness Services.

You could also make an appointment with a local vaccine provider. If you have the opportunity to get the vaccine at an off-campus clinic, please do get vaccinated.

Cost

There will be no cost for the vaccine.

The COVID-19 vaccine will be free for students and employees.

Some vaccination clinics may ask for medical insurance information, so please bring insurance documents to your appointment.

If you do not have insurance, you can still get vaccinated.
