Vaccination Requirements

NOV. 2021 UPDATE:

We are currently surveillance testing everyone on campus with the increase in the county’s positivity rate. Individuals who are not considered fully vaccinated must test weekly; those fully vaccinated must test monthly.

Testing frequency may change as the positive cases in the county change. Please check your emails daily at minimum twice daily is best during the frequent flux of the COVID pandemic.

Please register for testing HERE. Create a login and profile. This will be used at testing to link your test to your email for results.

Per the State University of New York policy, all students accessing campus facilities are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

SUNY Sullivan students who are vaccinated need to voluntarily consent to authorize SUNY to access information about their vaccination status HERE.  Send questions and/or proof of vaccination to healthservices@sunysullivan.edu.

Students may choose from the available vaccines—Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson. Students may choose from the available vaccines—Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, or Johnson. An individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine ( Pfizer and Moderna) or 2 weeks after the 1 dose of a 1-dose series vaccine like J&J.

Vaccines are available at most pharmacies, as well as walk-in New York State-run vaccination sites, making it easy and convenient to get your shots at no cost.

For locations near you, go to https://www.vaccines.gov/search/.

Medical and religious exemptions are available. Students who are granted a medical or religious exemption (CLICK HERE FOR EXEMPTION FORM) and who will be accessing a SUNY Facility without first receiving a COVID-19 vaccination, must either:

  1. Quarantine for at least ten (10) days upon arrival;
  2. Submit an attestation to the campus that they have quarantined for at least ten (10) days prior to arrival; or
  3. Provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test (within the past five days).

All students with exemptions will be subject to mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing administered by the campus.

Any student who has not demonstrated that they have begun the vaccine series or are fully vaccinated, or been granted a medical or religious exemption, will either be unenrolled, or may revert to fully remote instruction if that is an available option based on the student’s course of study and is otherwise permitted by the campus, and will no longer have access to any in-person campus activities or services.

RESIDENCE HALL STUDENTS

Residence Hall residents are REQUIRED to either be fully vaccinated. In addition, students will also be required to provide upon arrival a negative PCR test within three days of arrival. Send questions and/or proof of vaccination to healthservices@sunysullivan.edu.

These updated protocols are subject to change as COVID-related conditions evolve. In addition, nothing herein limits the authority of campuses to impose additional COVID regulations within its current authority if not enumerated in the following guidance. Campuses must continue to comply with any additional requirements imposed by SUNY and local health departments.
