COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement Information

The University of Connecticut added a COVID vaccine requirement for students who will be enrolled and attending class at any campus for the fall 2021 semester. Immunization requirements are in place to protect and promote the health and safety of the University community and to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 among University students, consistent with federal, state and local efforts to minimize outbreaks of COVID-19.  This vaccination requirement is in addition to immunization requirements already established by the State Department of Health and the University of Connecticut.
