COVID-19 Vaccinations Required

Princeton University will require all students, faculty and staff be vaccinated for COVID-19. The University announced the faculty and staff requirement, including instructions on seeking a medical or religious exemption, on June 8. The mandate for undergraduate and graduate students to be vaccinated was issued earlier.

Students, faculty and staff are considered fully vaccinated

  1. At least 14 days after receiving the final dose of an FDA or WHO-approved vaccine
  2. Upon uploading evidence of vaccination to MyUHS (students, graduate and undergraduate) or VacStatus (employees)

Employees must upload vaccination information to VacStatus (whether vaccination record, intent to vaccinate or request for accommodation) by July 1. Employees who have not updated VacStatus will lose access to campus buildings (beginning July 14) and may face disciplinary action.

By August 1, employees must have received their final dose of vaccine unless an accommodation has been granted.
