Public health officials recommend vaccination as the first and best way to ultimately protect our community against COVID-19.

Vaccination and Boosters

Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself against COVID-19.

The university continues to require proof of a primary series of a COVID-19 vaccination or medical/religious exemption for all campus community members. We strongly urge everyone to receive every additional COVID-19 booster that becomes available to them. Please note that the CDC defines up-to-date vaccination as when an individual has received all doses in the primary series and has also received all recommended boosters.

Vaccination Eligibility

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all New York residents 6 months of age and older. People who live outside the state but work or study in New York are also eligible.

Appointments are currently available at a number of state-run and city-run sites.
