Marshall B Ketchum University COVID-19 Vaccination Guidance
Last updated 8/11/2021
As a health professions institution, MBKU requires vaccination against COVID-19 to promote public health and support education and patient care on our campuses. Pursuant to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) order dated August 5, 2021, effective immediately, all MBKU employees and students must be vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
The only exemptions to this policy will be for 1) medical or 2) religious grounds. Requests for medical exemptions must be accompanied by a statement from a licensed health care provider. Requests for exemption on religious grounds must be accompanied by a statement that describes the religious or comparable belief that is the basis for the request.
Students who request an exemption from this policy must also sign Request for Waiver of Covid Policy, Agreement, Waiver, and Release form from University Student Affairs. This waiver acknowledges the possibility that timely graduation may be affected by the ability to locate rotation sites that do not require COVID-19 vaccination.
Contact Student Affairs at email@example.com with questions or to request the waiver.
