The California State University announced July 27 that it will require faculty, staff and students who are accessing campus facilities at any university location to be immunized against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Because of evolving circumstances, the university is announcing the pending requirement now without waiting for any further action by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Dates by which faculty, staff and students must certify vaccination will vary by campus due to differences in academic calendars, but all certifications must be completed no later than Sept. 30. See this July 27 message for more information.
Vaccination Incentive Program
All registered students vaccinated after Aug. 16, 2021, will be eligible to receive a $50 gift card that can be used at the Kennel Bookstore or University Dining Services. The program will go through Sept. 30.
Beginning Aug. 30 students can pick up a gift card from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Student Health and Counseling Center. Students will need to bring their COVID-19 vaccination card to verify they have been fully vaccinated.
