Faculty, staff, and students
The University requires all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19 (two doses, or one-dose Johnson & Johnson) unless an exemption is granted.
Effective April 6, 2022, the booster requirement for all University students, faculty, and staff (including those at the University of Rochester Medical Center) has been put on hold indefinitely. This is subject to change based on future New York State or Monroe County COVID guidance, or worsening COVID rates on campus or in the Rochester community.
All students, faculty, and staff are still strongly encouraged to get their COVID booster upon becoming eligible.
