COVID-19 Vaccine

Bethel University Vaccination Policy

Bethel University will not require students or employees to be vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to participate in classes, activities, or employment in fall 2021. 

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) continue to show that COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at preventing severe illness and death, and both organizations suggest that vaccines are the best method available for protecting yourself and others from the virus. 

We strongly encourage you to explore your options with your healthcare provider, and we will offer vaccination opportunities on campus this fall. 

Regardless of whether you plan to be vaccinated or not, please voluntarily report your vaccination status so that we can identify appropriate mitigation strategies if case numbers increase.
