Vaccination rates among Utah State University students have remained steady as they return to school, showing little change from percentages before the break.

USU announced a vaccination requirement last August for the coming spring 2022 semester, asking students to fill out vaccine declarations claiming vaccination, intent or exemption. As spring semester began on Monday, 24,518 students had completed their declarations, according to USU spokesperson Emilie Wheeler. Of those students, 84% were fully vaccinated, vaccinated but missing documentation, or said they would be fully vaccinated by semester’s start on Jan. 10.
