COVID-19 Vaccine

Emory University will require all students to be immunized for COVID-19 for the fall 2021 semester, with exemptions for those with medical conditions or strong personal objections.

We will continue to monitor the prevalence of COVID-19 and the presence of variants and will be prepared to adjust our plans in response to evolving conditions and public health recommendations.

A copy of Policy 8.17 Mandatory Immunization Requirement and Fall 2021 COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement Frequently Asked Questions can be found online. Information on Emory’s student immunization requirements, how to upload vaccine documentation, and the process to apply for an exemption are available on the Student Health Services webpage. For information about vaccine requirements for international students, please visit FAQs for International Student about the COVID-19 Vaccine.

3.1.21: Yes. The demand for vaccine continues to be much greater than the supply available within the state. If you can get vaccinated outside of Emory Healthcare, including at a pharmacy or clinic, please do so.

3.1.21: Vaccine availability is subject to change based on supply at the state and federal levels. Please note, however, that all three vaccines are effective and have been through rigorous safety protocols. We encourage you to take whichever vaccine is available to you.

3.1.21: Yes, if you take a vaccine version that recommends receiving two doses, please take both doses of the vaccine as recommended and/or scheduled by your health care provider. The data for how well the vaccines work is based on having the recommended number of doses administered. For Moderna and Pfizer’s vaccines:

  • We don’t know whether the vaccines would work as well (or at all) with a single dose.
  • It is incredibly important that anyone who receives the first dose is committed to complying with the second dose.
  • If administered through Emory Healthcare, they will work with you to schedule both appointments.


  • Getting a vaccine series does NOT mean one can stop wearing a mask or stop physical distancing practices. No vaccines are 100 percent effective.
  • Everyone should continue to follow masking, physical distancing, and hand hygiene guidelines for the foreseeable future.
  • If you are required by Emory to take a screening test, you must continue to test even if you are fully vaccinated.
