COVID-19 vaccination, booster shot, & exemption forms

All students accessing SUNY facilities for any in-person classes or activities must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive a booster shot as they are eligible, with limited exception.

Students will submit proof of their booster shot based on their booster shot due date.

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 and booster shot are not required.

If a student is not fully vaccinated, or has not completed the entire vaccination process, or if you’d like to learn about how to receive a COVID-19 vaccination, visit sunyjcc.edu/covid19 to learn about specific guidelines.

Due dates for COVID-19 booster shot:

  • Pfizer or Moderna booster shot is due five months after you receive your second shot.
  • Janssen (J&J) booster shot is due two months after you receive your shot.

Medical Exemption: Students who are medically advised not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine by their physician, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant must provide this information in writing. This document must be signed by the licensed healthcare provider and submitted to their JCC campus Health Center. Students who submit a medical exemption will  be subject to additional requirements.

 
Religious Exemption: Students who hold genuine and sincere religious beliefs which are contrary to receiving the COVID-19 vaccination may be exempt after submitting a written statement as required by a SUNY facility. The statement should explain how receiving the COVID-19 vaccination conflicts with the student’s sincere religious belief or practice and how not receiving the COVID-19 vaccination will not otherwise prevent the student’s completion of the requirements of their academic program.

General, philosophical, or moral objections to such vaccines shall not suffice as the basis for a religious exemption. Students granted a religious exemption will be subjected to certain restrictions and may be subject to other restrictions imposed by the campus.

 
Additional Considerations for Students with Exemptions: Students who are granted medical or religious exemptions, and who will be accessing a SUNY facility without first receiving a COVID- 19 vaccination, will be required to quarantine for at least ten (10) days upon arrival and be subject to mandatory weekly COVID-19 testing administered by the campus. Following quarantine, the student will be required to maintain a six (6) feet social distance and wear a mask at all times, indoors and outdoors.
 
Exceptions to the mask wearing requirement include when students are in their private residential or personal space, eating meals on-campus while seated and social distancing is appropriately enforced, or by themselves.
