This is for first-time vaccine recipients only.

Where else can I find a COVID-19 vaccine near me?
If you are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, use vaccines.gov to find a location near you. To learn more about COVID-19 vaccines, visit the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) resource Vaccines for COVID-19.
Is the COVID-19 vaccine required for students?
The COVID-19 vaccine is not required, but highly recommended. Students are encouraged to consult Student Health Services, their private medical provider, or local department of health when making decisions about COVID-19 vaccination. While we will continue to study this issue, at this time State System universities do not have the legal authority to mandate COVID vaccines for students. Should there be a change in the law authorizing us to mandate COVID vaccines, we would reevaluate our position. Students interested in receiving the vaccine may use Vaccines.gov to find a location near them.
How do students submit vaccination and testing documentation requested?
Submit vaccination records by logging in to myWCU and clicking on the “Submit Record of Vaccination” tile on their homepage.
Submit test results using the COVID-19 Information Form.
