COVID-19 Updates

UP has updated its COVID-19 Vaccination Policy for the 2022-2023 academic year. The deadline to upload your COVID-19 vaccination record (including booster dose), or exemption form is August 15, 2022. Visit our Vaccine Compliance page for more information.

Looking for a COVID booster? Visit Vaccines.gov to find an off-campus vaccination site. The Health Center is planning to offer the updated booster on campus; watch your UP email for announcements!

On 9/1/2022, the FDA authorized updated Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 bivalent boosters. Bivalent boosters provide better protection against the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 variants. You can get the single booster dose at least two months after your primary series or most recent booster.

The following age groups are currently eligible for the bivalent booster:

  • Moderna booster: people 18 years of age and older
  • Pfizer booster: people 12 years of age and older

 

Due to COVID-19 testing taking place in the clinic, the Health Center is kindly asking that students, staff, and faculty limit the number of walk-in requests as much as possible by making an appointment before coming to the building. 

If you are currently experiencing a medical or psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room.

Confidentiality Statement

The Health and Counseling staff value our ability to provide students with a safe and confidential place to seek help. Therefore, we will not disclose student information to parents, friends, coaching staff, or faculty unless we have signed release from the student. 


Commitment to Inclusion

The Health and Counseling services staff are committed to providing an emotionally safe, accessible, and compassionate space for all University of Portland students. We strive to integrate multicultural humility and competence into our everyday functioning, firmly planted in the belief that all people have dignity and are deserving of respect. Grounded in this foundation, we support students of all identities including age, gender, culture, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, language, mental and physical ability, national origin, religion, spirituality, size, socio-economic status, immigration status, political perspective, and world view. Our staff are committed to opposing microaggressions, discriminations, prejudice, and all forms of oppression.
