Georgetown University is now able to vaccinate students, faculty and staff on campus, at no cost to community members. Vaccines will be available on a rolling basis.
If you are interested in getting vaccinated on campus, sign up for a vaccination appointment.
We are deeply grateful to our partners at the DC Department of Health for enabling us to offer this opportunity to our community.Back to Top
Student Vaccination Requirement
As President DeGioia shared in his April 14 message, following the guidance of our Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Ranit Mishori, and our Public Health Advisory group, and in consultation with student, staff and faculty leaders, we will require undergraduate, graduate and professional students to be fully immunized prior to the Fall 2021 semester. Students enrolled in online programs that do not have any on-campus components are exempt from this requirement.Back to Top
To meet this requirement, students will need to submit documentation showing they have been fully vaccinated with a vaccine authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO). Currently, this combined list includes Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson (Janssen), AstraZeneca, COVISHIELD, Sinopharm and Sinovac. The FDA and WHO may authorize additional vaccines in the coming weeks and months.
If you are not able to receive one of these vaccines at this time, we encourage you to receive the vaccine that is available to you at the earliest opportunity in order to protect yourselves, your family and others. We will help students who have not been vaccinated or who have received a vaccine that has not been authorized by the FDA or WHO to get an authorized vaccine on campus upon arrival. Please refer to this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for more information.
We recognize our international students face unique challenges and uncertainties caused by the pandemic. Please review the CDC’s international travel guidelines. We will provide updated information about traveling to DC, including testing and quarantine requirements, as it becomes available.Back to Top
Religious and Medical Exemptions
As with all of our existing vaccination requirements for students, medical and religious exemptions will be granted in accordance with federal and local law.
Students may request a medical or religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement by completing the exemption request form and submitting the information required.
If a medical or religious waiver is granted, the student will receive an individualized accommodation with information on the public health measures that they will need to take, which will include following the University’s COVID-19 Testing Protocol and COVID-19 Mask Guidelines for unvaccinated individuals.Back to Top
Faculty and Staff
We are closely reviewing whether we will establish a vaccine requirement for our faculty and staff. We are consulting with our faculty and staff leadership bodies as we consider this decision. We will provide updated information as soon as possible.
We strongly encourage all faculty and staff to get vaccinated as soon as possible to protect themselves and others.Back to Top
Submitting COVID-19 Vaccination Documentation
We encourage all members of our community to submit documentation of their COVID-19 vaccination (e.g., CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card) through the GU360 mobile app or GU360 website. Please follow these instructions to submit your documentation. If you have already shared it with the Care Navigator team, you do not need to submit it again through GU360.Back to Top
