Getting vaccinated for COVID-19

UW System and UW-Whitewater are not mandating vaccinations for students or employees at this time. However, vaccination is strongly encouraged as the best means to protect the health of students, faculty and staff.

Use vaccines.gov to find a location near you, and then select the preferred location for more information, including help in making an appointment.

Students, faculty and staff: please submit a copy of your Wisconsin immunization record or vaccination card in any of the following ways:

  • Submit it online at https://my.uww.edu/Vaccination/
  • Bring the copy to the COVID-19 office, located in the UW-Whitewater Police Department at Goodhue Hall.
  • Fax it to 262-472-5746.
  • Mail it to UW-Whitewater Police Department, 790 W. Starin Rd. Whitewater, Wisconsin, 53190.

If you begin to feel COVID-19 symptoms, you are expected to have yourself tested to ensure the safety of others and assist in the national evaluation of the vaccine.

If you previously submitted your vaccination card as verification but were denied, please resubmit your card.

Doing our part
