University of Virginia requiring COVID-19 boosters for students and staff

University of Virginia students will need COVID-19 booster shots in order to study, live or work at the university this spring.

University leaders made the decision for the spring semester with the advice of public health experts, and emailed the university community.

Everyone at the university — faculty, staff and students — will need to provide documentation to the university by Feb. 1, 2022.

Those who are not yet eligible for a booster must show proof of their added shot 30 days after they become eligible.
