SEATTLE (AP) — University of Washington officials announced Monday they will require all students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before fall quarter begins.

Students will need to verify they have been vaccinated unless they are claiming a medical, religious or philosophical exemption.

The university also plans to provide access to vaccinations on campus, but school officials say students should get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Washington State University said last week it will require proof of COVID-19 vaccinations this fall for students and employees.
