- How do I submit Proof of my COVID-19 Vaccination?
Once you’ve received the COVID-19 vaccine, it’s important you report your vaccination via our vaccination reporting form. The form is confidential.
- Is a COVID-19 vaccination required for Maryville students, faculty and staff?
Maryville expects all community members to be up-to-date with their vaccines against COVID-19. Individuals who are not up-to-date with their vaccines against COVID-19 may be subject to additional health and safety requirements.
We acknowledge that some individuals have health, religious and other reasons why they cannot get vaccinated.
While Maryville does not require COVID-19 vaccination, students should be aware that some third-party external sites, such as clinical sites, study abroad programs, student teaching or internship sites, may require vaccination. Per Maryville’s affiliation agreements with these third-party sites, we are required to comply with the standards implemented by the site. Maryville will work with students to identify alternative options should external vaccination requirements present a barrier to a student’s participation; however, Mayville cannot guarantee the availability of alternative sites or that alternatives will be comparable to the student’s preferred site. Getting the vaccine is the surest way to help avoid any disruption to your academic progression.
- Is Maryville offering COVID-19 vaccines and boosters?
Yes. Vaccination appointments are available on an ongoing basis. You can make an appointment by calling 314-529-9520 or emailing email@example.com. Vaccines are also available at local CVS and Walgreens stores.
The Health & Wellness Office will also sponsor walk-in clinics throughout the year for Maryville community members. These clinics are advertised to the community through email announcements. For additional information, contact the Health & Wellness Office.
