WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - American University and Georgetown University both announced Wednesday that they will be requiring all students who come to campus for any reason in the fall to be vaccinated for COVID-19.
AU also says on their website that the vaccination requirement includes full-time and part-time students, undergraduates and graduate students, and residential and non-residential students.
Georgetown says undergraduate and graduate students at the main campus, medical center and law center will be required to receive a COVID-19 vaccination for the fall semester.
"We will provide updated information on issues such as timing, verification process, and exemptions, once it becomes available," a press release from Georgetown reads. "As with all of our existing vaccination requirements for students, medical and religious exemptions will be granted in accordance with federal and local law."
Multiple universities across the country have announced similar requirements for COVID-19 vaccinations including Duke University and Notre Dame.
