Are your Staff and Faculty?
Yes, vaccinations are required.
The Governor’s Educator Vaccine Requirement announced on August 18, 2021, requires employees in Washington’s higher education institutions to be vaccinated.
- All employees must be fully vaccinated, including employees who work remotely.
- Employees may apply for a medical or religious exemption, but personal or philosophical exemptions are no longer permitted.
- You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you get your second dose of a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine, such as Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna, or two weeks after a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Are you a Student?
Vaccinations are encouraged, but not required
YVC strongly encourages students to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but we will not require vaccinations as a condition of learning and working on campus. Some clinical sites may require vaccinations.
How to get Vaccinated
Vaccines have proven highly effective against COVID-19, even the variants. If you have not been vaccinated, we strongly encourage you to do so. Find a location.
