60-percent of incoming Purdue students and 66-percent of Purdue employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have submitted proof four weeks in advance of the Aug. 13 fall semester deadline.

Purdue announced the figures Tuesday in its first release of overall campus vaccination rates.

Purdue is strongly encouraging all students and employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Individuals not vaccinated who have a high-risk exposure must quarantine for 14 days and will not be allowed to attend classes or report to work, regardless of symptoms.
