COVID-19 Immunization Requirement

In support of Rutgers’ commitment to health and safety for all members of its community, all students planning to attend in the Fall 2021 semester must present evidence of COVID-19 immunization at least 2 weeks prior to coming onto campus for any reason. You can learn more about this requirement here: Policy 10.3.14 Interim COVID-19 Immunization Record Requirement for Students 

Complete vaccination documentation must be uploaded to the Rutgers Immunization Portal (NetID and password are required) at least two weeks prior to your arrival on campus, but no later than August 1, 2021. Please consult with your academic advisor or program coordinator to confirm your on-campus start date.

Register your interest in being vaccinated on campus and schedule an appointment on our vaccine portal website. Additionally, there are many locations throughout the State of New Jersey with vaccine availability.
