All SUNY institutions – including SUNY Suffolk – now require that on-campus students, and any students accessing campus facilities, must provide proof of COVID 19 full vaccination to the campus Office of Health Services. Students will be unable to register for on campus classes until proof of COVID 19 vaccination is received by the Office of Health Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students must submit proof of a complete vaccination series prior to registration for any on campus classes.
Johnson & Johnson/Janssen (1 dose, 18+)
Pfizer (2-dose series, 12+): requires a 21-day period between doses.
Moderna (2-dose series, 18+): requires a 28-day period between doses.
COVID-19 Vaccination Compliance
As per the SUNY Covid-19 vaccination policy, which was adopted on August 21, 2021, all students enrolled in on-campus courses, and all students who intend to access campus facilities must provide proof that they have completed a full COVID-19 vaccine series (i.e., receiving at least one dose of a single dose vaccine series, or at least a second dose of a two-dose vaccine series) in order to continue enrollment in on-campus courses and to continue accessing campus facilities.
In addition, as soon as they are eligible, students are required to present evidence of a COVID-19 vaccine booster. Details regarding student eligibility to receive the booster will be communicated directly to students and made available on the website.
Students whose course of study is fully remote may be exempted from the COVID-19 Vaccination requirement. For this exemption to apply, the student must have no physical presence on campus nor reasonably anticipate using on-campus services for the entirety of the academic term. Students must submit a Fully Remote Attestation form, which requires them to state that they understand they will not be allowed to use any College facility unless they submit proof of vaccination and booster in accordance with SUNY’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy requirements or are granted an applicable medical or religious exemption.
How do I comply with COVID-19 Vaccine requirement?
In order to register for any on-campus courses students must submit proof of vaccination to email@example.com. Include a copy of your vaccine card, your name, and your college student identification number.
