We will only accept FDA approved* (licensed or Emergency Use Authorization) vaccines. Currently, those include Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), Moderna, and Pfizer. There may be other vaccines approved over the summer, so please continue to check the Our Way Forward vaccine FAQs for the list of acceptable vaccines.
*Note: students who receive a World Health Organization (WHO)-authorized vaccine (but not FDA approved) will be required to receive an FDA approved vaccine upon arrival to comply with the COVID-19 policy, but will not be required to quarantine after arrival from international locations if they have no symptoms.
Students will be given a grace period of 28 days after their last dose of a WHO-authorized COVID vaccine before they are expected to receive an- FDA approved vaccine (which is the recommended timing from the CDC). They will be permitted to attend classes, live on campus, and engage in activities while awaiting/completing re-vaccination. They will need to be tested asymptomatically until they reach the “fully vaccinated” status. Details on asymptomatic testing will be provided to those students once the fall semester begins.
