Vaccination Requirements for Fall 2021

CUNY students attending in-person and hybrid classes for the fall 2021 semester are required to be vaccinated. You must submit your vaccination documentation by September 14, 2021. In order to meet this submission deadline, you must receive the following vaccines by these dates:

Moderna: first dose by August 3
Pfizer: first dose by August 10
Johnson & Johnson: single dose by August 31

All vaccination sites require an ID that verifies your age and N.Y. state residency, with no appointment needed. Use these tools to find a free vaccine site close to you and to check which vaccine(s) they offer:


Requests for an exception or medical exemption from getting vaccinated can be made and CUNY will provide more guidance on this process soon. Students can visit campus for other reasons without being fully vaccinated, but must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 7 days prior to the visit.
