COVID-19 Vaccine


The following COVID-19 vaccine requirements and guidelines have been developed to maintain a continued safe learning environment.

Vaccine and Booster Requirements

  • Emory University requires all students, faculty, and staff to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, with exceptions only for those with approved medical or religious exemptions, and those students, faculty, and staff who are fully remote.
    • Vaccine locations and relevant information can be found at Vaccines.gov.
    • Please review CDC guidelines for specific scenarios around when and how to schedule your primary series or booster shots.
  • Approved COVID-19 vaccination exemptions will be extended for the COVID-19 booster; there is no need to reapply if you have already received an approved exemption (see more exemption information below).
