Will I be required to take the COVID-19 vaccine?

SMU is strongly encouraging but not requiring our campus community to get the COVID-19 vaccination. The University is an approved provider to make it as easy as possible for our employees and students to get the vaccine at no cost to them through the Dr. Bob Smith Health Center.

SMU recognizes that some individuals may choose not to get the vaccine for religious, health or personal reasons, but we expect that many will take this important preventive step to protect themselves and others on campus and their families at home. With a robust vaccination offering, in accordance with state guidelines, SMU will help the universal effort to bolster immunity and limit the spread of the coronavirus.
