Spring 2022 & COVID-19 vaccinations

SUNY policy requires all students accessing SUNY facilities in-person to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, with limited exception.

On-campus JCC students have to submit proof of COVID-19 and all other required immunizations to the Health Center to avoid academic withdrawal from all on-campus courses, financial liability, or negative impacts on financial aid status.

Students newly enrolled in classes on campus for spring 2022 have to submit their vaccination and immunization records to the Health Center before starting classes. All students are to be fully vaccinated for all on-campus courses and on-campus activities by Thursday, January 13, 2022.

Face masks and daily screenings are required for all students, employees, and visitors coming to campus, regardless of vaccination status.

Following the FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, SUNY policy requires all students accessing SUNY facilities in-person to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, with limited exception.

This policy includes students coming to campus for any reason, including credit courses, non-credit courses, athletics, campus life, residence life, student services, and Sheriff’s Academy.

On-campus JCC students have to submit proof of COVID-19 and all other required immunizations to the Health Center to avoid academic withdrawal from all on-campus courses, financial liability, or negative impacts on financial aid status.

Any student who has not shown that they have completed a full vaccine series or been granted an 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 will no longer have access to any in-person campus activities or services.

If a student is taking online coursework only and has no plans to participate in any on-campus activities or interactions, the COVID-19 vaccination is not required.

Review Health Services Immunization Requirements and submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination (including exemption requests).

The COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are free and available through the Chautauqua County and Cattaraugus County health department clinics and many pharmacies.
