Vaccination, surveillance testing rates remain strong overall at semester’s start through Protect Purdue efforts
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The vast majority of Purdue University students are in compliance with the Protect Purdue guidelines by either uploading their vaccine status or submitting to regular surveillance testing.
Three weeks into the semester, 84 Purdue students are receiving disciplinary action for failing to comply with the Protect Purdue surveillance testing requirement after a prior warning. After the first week of testing, over 700 students were out of compliance, but ongoing communication to that group has resulted in a majority uploading their vaccine documentation or fulfilling their testing requirement.
