Georgetown, American to Require COVID Vaccinations for Students This Fall

Georgetown University and American University both said students must receive a coronavirus vaccination before attending in-person classes for the fall semester.

“Following the guidance of our chief public health officer, Dr. Ranit Mishori, and our public health advisory group, and in consultation with student, staff and faculty leaders, will require undergraduate and graduate students at the Main Campus, Medical Center and Law Center to receive a COVID-19 vaccination for the fall semester,” Georgetown President John J. DeGioia wrote in a letter Wednesday to students, WUSA-TV (Channel 9) reported.

DeGioia said guidance on international students will come at a later time and no decision has been made on faculty and staff members.

American University President Sylvia M. Burwell made a similar announcement to the AU community, saying that all students “who reside on-campus or come to campus for any reason” would require vaccination.

“Robust vaccinations in our community will enable us to expand activities and interactions that enrich the educational, research and social experiences that are fundamental to AU,” she said in an announcement posted Wednesday on the AU website.

American also has yet to craft a plan for international students and is seeking further guidance, Burwell said.
