Vaccination Policy

Students

Jacksonville University students are not required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, but it is strongly recommended. Getting vaccinated is the responsible and right thing to do to protect yourself and our community. If you have questions about the vaccines, we have answers. Learn more.

Faculty & Staff

All Jacksonville University faculty and staff who work on campus at Jacksonville University or at any learning site or facility operated by Jacksonville University are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (effective August 20, 2021).

Research has overwhelmingly shown that immunization with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is the best way to reduce COVID-19-related illness, hospitalization, and death. A growing body of scientific literature shows all three vaccines are safe and effective in preventing severe symptoms. Learn more about the vaccines.

We look forward to working with you in order to ensure a healthy campus environment for our students and colleagues. Please contact hr@ju.edu if you have any questions.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Note

Jacksonville University recognizes that mandatory vaccination requirements may place undue burden on communities of color and those with trauma related to historical and contemporary experiences with medical care. We are relying on your compliance as we work to keep our communities safe. We have made efforts to remove barriers to care such as cost and access and follow the most rigorous scientific evidence available when providing and recommending healthcare to students. If you have questions or concerns about any aspect of the vaccination process, please reach out for support.
