COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements
Marist’s Board of Trustees voted to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty, and staff who are attending the College in person in academic year 2021-22. To be in compliance with this requirement, all students, faculty, and staff must complete an acceptable vaccine series (e.g. a single shot of Johnson & Johnson or second shot of Moderna or Pfizer, or other vaccines on the World Health Organization - Emergency Use List and upload official documentation no later than August 1, 2021.
- When you have completed your COVID-19 vaccine series documentation should be uploaded to: marist.medicatconnect.com.
- If you have already uploaded your information, you can verify its status through the following instructions. Please do not contact Health Services to confirm the status of your upload.
- The term "fully vaccinated' means that two weeks have passed since the final dose of your COVID-19 vaccination series. Until students, faculty and staff are fully vaccinated, the following protocols must be followed:
- Mandatory COVID-19 surveillance testing until fully vaccinated.
- Wearing an approved face covering at all times inside Marist facilities, practicing social distancing when possible, following mandatory quarantine protocols if exposed to or test positive for COVID-19.
