COVID-19 Vaccine Information

CSU Planning COVID-19 Requirement For Fall 2021

On April 22, the California State University system and University of California shared in a joint announcement that students, faculty and staff will be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine to be able to access campus facilities this fall. 

The CSU, of which SDSU is part, indicated two important conditions for the requirement to be implemented: The requirement is contingent upon full approval of one or more vaccines by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and adequate availability of fully approved vaccines. 

Additional information and guidance, including exceptions that will be offered for students, faculty and staff, is forthcoming and will be shared at a later date.
