As announced last week, The University of Winnipeg will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to attend campus this fall. Effective September 7, the vaccination mandate applies to all UWinnipeg students, faculty members, and staff who attend campus for learning, studying, teaching, research, or work.
A vaccination verification centre will be open in Riddell Hall starting Monday, August 30 to Friday, September 10 with daily hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The centre will be closed September 4 to 6.
Faculty, staff, and students who are fully vaccinated (two doses plus two weeks) will be required to present one-time proof of vaccination. Once verified, a green campus-access sticker will be affixed to their student ID card or employee ID card (please follow link for instructions if you do not already have an ID card). The card with sticker will need to be presented at designated access points to enter campus.
Those who are fully vaccinated but unable to provide proof at this time — or are partially vaccinated and scheduled to complete their vaccination — will be asked to sign a self-declaration form. They will receive a temporary access sticker, which will be valid until October 15, 2021. Campus access will be revoked unless proof of full vaccination is shown by that date.
