Important Booster Reminder

Dear Students,

I hope your semester is going well and you are looking forward to spring and spring break which are only a few weeks away.

As we continue to progress through the semester, I am writing to remind you that the March 1, 2022 deadline established for the Booster mandate is rapidly approaching and to remind you if you have not yet submitted your proof of vaccination with the booster, you do so as soon as possible based on your eligibility to receive the booster.

We recognize that many of you may have had Covid -19 in the recent past so there may be a need for a temporary waiver to be assigned in your case. In some cases, you may not yet be eligible for the booster based on the timing of you second does of Pfizer or Moderna or your initial dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. No matter, it is critical that you communicate your situation with us through the student health portal or via health@monmouth.edu.

As a reminder, the  Vaccination Booster Requirement is as follows:

Because of waning immunity considerations for individuals who were fully vaccinated more than five months ago with the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or more than two months ago with the J&J vaccine, the University is requiring every member of the Monmouth community (i.e., students, faculty, staff) to get the appropriate booster dose for their initial vaccination series.

To help make the vaccine and booster readily available to our community, we will be hosting our next on-campus clinic on  Wednesday, February 23, 2022 in Anacon Hall.   The university will continue to work to add vaccination clinics on campus and will also communicate where boosters may be available in the community beyond the campus.

All students must provide up-to-date information on their vaccination status through the Health Portal by March 1. Please report your vaccination information as soon as possible to avoid any problems that may be caused by waiting until the last minute.  Instructions regarding posting your vaccination or booster record are attached to this memo.

Any unvaccinated member of our community, including those who do not receive the appropriate booster dose for their initial vaccination series, will be required to comply with the heightened health and safety protocols put into place last semester, including regular surveillance testing, required quarantine periods if exposed to a covid positive person, etc.

Please let us know if you have any questions or require assistance here.
