Today is the last day that West Conn students attending the university in the fall can get their Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine first dose and be fully vaccinated by the time classes start. The Connecticut State University System is requiring COVID-19 immunization for students returning to campus in August.
With the single-dose Johnson & Johnson, students should get the shot no later than August 6.
Any student seeking a medical or non-medical exemption must fill out a form or contact representatives from the CSCU System Office. Any students without an approved exemption or are not fully vaccinated prior to the start of the semester, may not be permitted to move into the residence halls. West Conn officials cautioned that they could also be at risk of being dropped from classes.
