COVID-19 Vaccine Information
Effective May 22, Marquette will no longer require a COVID-19 vaccination or booster for students, with the exception of those who are studying or working in clinical or other settings that still require vaccinations. Those exceptions will be managed at the college or department level.
Marquette continues to strongly recommend that all students, faculty and staff get vaccinated against COVID-19 and stay up to date with recommended boosters. COVID-19 vaccination decreases severity of illness and hospitalizations for those infected.
Current CDC guidance states:
COVID-19: Everyone 6 months and older is now eligible and recommended to receive the updated COVID-19 vaccine. Doses of the updated vaccine, manufactured by Moderna and Pfizer, have been approved, authorized, and recommended by national health experts for the following groups.
- Individuals 5 years of age and older regardless of previous vaccination are eligible to receive a single dose of the updated Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least 2 months after the last dose of any COVID-19 vaccine.
- Individuals 6 months through 4 years of age who have previously been vaccinated against COVID-19 are eligible to receive one or two doses of the updated Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (timing and number of doses to administer depends on the previous COVID-19 vaccine received).
- Unvaccinated individuals 6 months through 4 years of age are eligible to receive three doses of the updated Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine or two doses of the updated Moderna vaccine.
- Additional doses are also authorized for certain immunocompromised individuals.
- People may receive either of the vaccines regardless of which vaccine was received in the past.
Marquette Medical Clinic does not administer COVID-19 vaccine. Visit vaccines.gov to find where you can get the updated COVID-19 vaccine.
