Vaccination Clinics for Students and Employees

FREE COVID-19 vaccinations and booster doses are available to Marshall students and employees Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Memorial Student Center, as long as supplies last. No appointments are necessary.

Vaccinations are also available at most pharmacies, the Cabell-Huntington Health Department and your primary care provider.

Please address any general questions about the vaccine to COVID19@marshall.edu. If you have medical or health concerns about the vaccine, please contact your personal healthcare provider.

Additional information about the efficacy and safety of COVID vaccines is available on the Marshall Health website.

Lost vaccination card? The Cabell-Huntington Health Department can assist anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccine at one of their community clinics, including Marshall University. Call 304-523-6483. You can also visit the West Virginia DHHR Replacement Card website.

Online Vaccination Registry

Marshall University has an online process for students and employees to register their COVID-19 vaccination status and is requesting that all on-campus students and employees visit the registry to enter/update their information.

The information in the registry is used solely to help Marshall’s health and safety officials project future herd immunity associated with vaccine prevalence among our campus community. We know that more than 80% of Marshall’s faculty and staff are vaccinated, and we are now trying to determine what percentage of our student body has elected to receive the vaccine. A minimum vaccination rate of 70% on campus helps us significantly reduce severe illness and spread of the virus, better protect the health and safety of our university family and the Huntington community, and permit our students to engage in-person and more fully in various aspects of university life than they have since the onset of the pandemic.

Please visit the online vaccination registry and enter or update the requested information. If you have been vaccinated, please refer to your COVID-19 vaccination card for the type of vaccine you received and the date(s) administered to enter into the registry. When you receive booster doses, you should revisit the registry to update your information.

Marshall University does not require the vaccine. If you have elected not to receive the vaccination or if you do not wish to disclose your vaccination status, you can indicate that choice in the registry with no consequences.

Only Environmental Health and Safety, Student Health staff and IT database administrators with elevated rights will have access to individual data. The data will be made available in aggregate to members of the COVID-19 Health and Safety Task Force for the purposes of projecting, modeling and making policy recommendations. Personally identifiable information will not be accessible to members of the task force.

Marshall University will continue to make safety the primary consideration in its decision-making, and to rely on the most up-to-date scientific information available to make informed decisions about its operations.

Please address questions to COVID19@marshall.edu.

Student and Employee Testing

Free testing on the Huntington campus is available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday in the Memorial Student Center, as long as supplies last. Walk-ups are welcome.

Please report third-party or home test results here.

Case Management/Contact Tracing/Quarantining

Marshall University has collaborated with the Cabell-Huntington Health Department, Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health to develop appropriate protocols for case management and contact tracing for cases that may occur on campus.

All contacts received by the university that indicate a potential exposure to COVID-19 are immediately traced by trained public health contact tracers from our campus, and immediate actions to isolate individuals are implemented. Marshall University has designated an on-campus isolation area for persons residing in Housing and Residence Life facilities. Students living off campus are offered on-campus isolation on a case-by-case basis.

If you are exposed to COVID-19, you are not required to quarantine if you have been fully vaccinated against the disease and show no symptoms.

Formal case management plans and operating procedures have been developed in consultation with the county health department. These plans detail the case management process, roles and responsibilities, contact tracing, medical support and quarantine for on-campus residents, communication protocols, and case-specific cleaning and disinfection.
