POTSDAM, N.Y. (WWTI) — A deadline is here for all students attending institutions within the State University of New York. All students satisfying the school system’s vaccine requirement with Pfizer of Moderna must receive the first dose as of Friday, September 3.
They must be fully vaccinated—either with a second dose, or a single dose of Johnson and Johnson—by Monday, September 27. As required by the state, all SUNY and CUNY students must be vaccinated. This requirement was codified after the Pfizer vaccine received full approval from the Food and Drug Administration earlier this month.
After vaccination, students are required to submit and verify vaccination records to their individual universities. The deadline for medical and religious exemptions or temporary accommodation is also Friday, September 3.
According to SUNY, students will be disenrolled from classes, restricted from campus, and barred from receiving refunds for housing or meal tuition if they do not meet the requirements.
