OHSU-PSU School of Public Health COVID-19 Campus Information
The School of Public Health is following the policies and guidelines of our two partner universities.
Graduate students are required to document compliance with COVID-19 vaccine policies at both OHSU and PSU. You must do this separately for each university.
PSU’s vaccination policy now requires booster shots for those who are eligible. Learn more about vaccination eligibility.
