WSU Tri-Cities contracts Rite Aid for vaccination clinic

WSU Tri-Cities

TRI-CITIES, Wash. — Starting in the Fall of 2021, Washington State University will require proof of vaccination for students looking to attend in-person classes. To make the process easier for the school community, WSU Tri-Cities is hosting its second COVID-19 vaccination clinic through a contract with Rite Aid.

According to school officials, the vaccination clinic will operate on May 19 at the WSU Tri-Cities Consolidated Information Center (CIC) located at 2770 University Dr. in Richland. It will run from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. and another clinic for second doses will be held on June 9. If you would like to sign up to participate in the vaccination clinic, click here.

Participating individuals will be asked to provide medical and pharmacy insurance cards, a valid ID, as well as their completed consent form. Students and other participants will be asked to line up in a socially distanced waiting area and will be asked to wait for 15 minutes after receiving their dose.

Vaccination requirements apply to all students unless otherwise excused due to a personal, religious, or medical exemption preestablished with WSU Tri-Cities officials. Proof of vaccination must be turned in to school officials by November 1.

Students not living in university housing or with program-specific requirements will be required to have documented proof of vaccine or an approved exemption. Students who fail to meet the requirement will be prevented from registering for spring semester courses and/or face other restrictions.
