Students, faculty and staff asked to verify their COVID-19 vaccine status by Jan. 28


West Virginia University recently updated requirements for students, faculty and staff regarding COVID-19 and vaccinations.

WVU strongly encourages, but does not require, everyone to stay optimally protected against COVID-19 by getting their primary vaccine series and staying up to date with a booster dose if they are eligible to receive one.

Those on the Health Sciences Campus involved in patient care, including residents, fellows and students, are required to follow separate WVU Health System or other clinical provider’s policies, including those related to COVID-19 such as masks, PPE and vaccinations.

Verify Your Vaccine Status

Prior to Friday, Jan. 28, all students, faculty and staff who are on campus should take one of the following actions to verify their vaccine status with the University:

  • Students, faculty and staff who already have verified their vaccination status for their primary vaccine series and have received a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine should visit the Vaccine Verification System and enter details on their booster via StarRez (WVU’s housing portal) at by following these instructions. 

WVU highly encourages those who have not gotten their primary series of a COVID-19 vaccine or those who have not yet received a booster — if they are eligible to receive one — to do so as soon as possible. Vaccines continue to be readily available: 

  • WVU Medicine Student Health has the Pfizer vaccine available for WVU students at its clinic in the Health and Education Building. Walk-in appointments are offered during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). 

  • The Monongalia County Health Department is offering free vaccinations by appointment on most days at its facility at 453 Van Voorhis Rd. Anyone who wishes to be vaccinated can call 304-598-5119 to schedule an appointment. Other vaccination opportunities can be found at

Anyone with questions about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine is encouraged to speak with their primary care physician or a representative from WVU Medicine Student Health.
