What is UW–Madison’s plan for vaccinating students?

UW-Madison is achieving a high vaccination rate through a combination of beginning early with repeated messaging and visible marketing, an emphasis on data analysis and targeted outreach and a laser-like focus on the topic from Chancellor Blank and her leadership team, along with UHS and other campus units that have made vaccination a high priority.

As of Sept. 1, 88 percent of students are vaccinated. This high level of vaccination means that we have a robust level of protection on campus and fewer members of our population will experience severe infections caused by COVID-19, compared to areas with lower vaccination rates.

Students can schedule appointments at go.wisc.edu/myuhs. Students can also seek vaccine appointments off campus using VaccineFinder.org.

Once students submit proof that they are fully vaccinated (14 days past final dose) and the information is processed, they will no longer be required to test regularly.
