Being a responsible Redbird includes taking measures to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 by making every effort to prevent the spread of this disease. As we approach the Fall 2021 semester, the best way to fully return to a more traditional campus experience is to continue to follow public health guidance, which includes getting vaccinated.
As outlined in our previously released fall 2021 plans, all students are expected to provide evidence of receiving the COVID-19 vaccination prior to the fall term. For students living in on-campus housing, records should be received prior to Move-In. For students living off-campus, records should be received by the first day of class, Monday, August 16.
Students should submit vaccination records to the secure Patient Health Portal by uploading an image of their COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card received at the time of vaccination or a COVID-19 immunization record provided by a healthcare provider. Students who received their COVID-19 vaccination at an on-campus clinic do not need to submit additional records—their COVID-19 vaccination record is already on file with Student Health Services.
Students taking courses on campus who do not provide evidence of receiving the COVID vaccine will be required to participate in the COVID-19 on-campus testing program. More information about the testing program will be provided as we near the fall semester.
Students who are enrolled in fall courses, who are fully vaccinated, and who upload their COVID-19 vaccination information prior to the first day of class will be entered to win one of the following incentives.
By uploading your COVID-19 vaccination documentation for the purpose of participating in the Illinois State University (ISU) vaccination incentive you hereby agree to, understand, and represent the following:
