COVID-19 Vaccination Policy


Whittier College strongly encourages all students, faculty, staff, and contracted workers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and to receive additional boosters for which the individual is eligible according to CDC guidance.

The vaccine policy was adopted to safeguard the health and wellbeing of employees, students, and their families, as well as visitors to campus and the local community. This policy is intended to comply with all state and local laws. It is based upon guidance provided by public health and licensing authorities, as applicable.

Getting Vaccinated

Residents of California can book a vaccination appointment via the California Department of Public Health's My Turn website.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides vaccine appointment information for all states and counties in the United States.

Minors under the age of 18 require consent from a parent or guardian to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
