*Attention Ithaca College Students*

The deadline to submit your COVID-19 vaccine information to the Hammond Health Center is Monday, July 19, 2021. The time is NOW to get your vaccine series started!

To participate in academic coursework and extracurricular opportunities for the 2021-22 academic year, Ithaca College REQUIRES that all enrolled students MUST receive the COVID-19 vaccination series and be fully immunized. This vaccine REQUIREMENT must be fulfilled PRIOR to a student’s arrival in Ithaca for move-in. There will not be any accommodations made for students who arrive on campus without vaccine documentation submitted to the Hammond Health Center or, in specific limited cases, a college-approved vaccine exemption on file. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE MOVE-IN AND/OR ACCESS CAMPUS FOR FALL CLASSES WITHOUT THIS DOCUMENTATION SUBMITTED. 

**Important Reminder**
You will not be considered fully immunized until 14-days after having received your FINAL DOSEYOU MUST RECEIVE BOTH A ‘FIRST’ AND A ‘SECOND’ DOSE OF PFIZER OR MODERNA VACCINE OR THE ONE DOSE JOHNSON & JOHNSON VACCINE AND 14 DAYS MUST HAVE PASSED SINCE YOUR FINAL VACCINATION IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO MOVE-IN AND/OR ACCESS CAMPUS.

Vaccine Documentation Submission Deadline
All students who will be actively enrolled in the Fall 2021 semester must submit their vaccine documentation to the Hammond Health Center by Monday, July 19, 2021. This deadline allows for adequate time to process this documentation in advance of the scheduled move-in dates in August. Once the vaccination series is complete, please email pictures (front and back) of your COVID-19 vaccination card to the Hammond Health Center at healthcenter@ithaca.edu. These pictures should clearly and legibly show:

  • Full Name
  • Type of Vaccine Received
  • Dates of Vaccine Doses

When to Start the Vaccine Series if Planning to Receive Pfizer or Moderna
The Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are both administered in a two-dose series. Students receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine should schedule their first vaccine appointment no later than the week of June 14-20, 2021, to ensure that they have completed their vaccine series prior to the submission deadline and are fully immunized prior to accessing campus this fall.

When to Obtain the Vaccine if Planning to Receive Johnson & Johnson
The Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine is administered as a one-dose shot. Students receiving the Johnson & Johnson vaccine should schedule their vaccine appointment any time prior to July 19, 2021, to ensure that they have completed their vaccine series prior to the submission deadline and are fully immunized prior to accessing campus this fall.

Where to Find Vaccine Appointment Availability and More Information
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) vaccine webpage provides excellent resources and information regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. This webpage also includes a helpful link that can be used to identify vaccine opportunities near you throughout the United States. The vaccine webpage located on Ithaca College’s Return to Campus website is a great resource to learn more about COVID-19 vaccination as well.

Your cooperation and commitment will help to ensure a vibrant and engaging campus community for this upcoming year. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Rosanna Ferro, Ed.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs and Campus Life
