COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Students

Per New York State policy, all SUNY students are required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination or have an approved exemption.


New in-person students for Summer 2022 Sessions must submit documentation of a COVID-19 vaccination 14 days before the start of their first session.

New in-person students for Fall 2022 must submit documentation of a COVID-19 vaccination by August 8 or have an approved exemption.

Is the vaccine required if I've had COVID-19?

Yes. You are eligible for the primary COVID vaccinations and booster after you have had COVID-19, as soon as you have completed isolation and have fully recovered from the illness.

However, if you received passive antibody therapy (e.g. monoclonal antibodies) as part of your treatment for COVID then you should wait 90 days after that treatment to get a vaccine because the antibodies can interfere with vaccine response. If this applies to you, you must submit a medical exemption form.

Do I have to show proof of a booster?

No. SUNY Geneseo no longer requires students to have a COVID-19 booster.

I have other questions.

Please contact with any other questions.
