A Message to Students on COVID-19 Vaccinations
Students are reminded to upload their vaccine records by Sunday, August 1, 2021. Failure to comply with the vaccine mandate will prevent you from continuing your academic work at Rutgers. Students not compliant with the vaccine mandate will have their NetID access blocked, preventing them from accessing any Rutgers application that requires a login. Students with on-campus housing assignments will not receive keys to their residence halls or apartments.

An Important Message: Upload Your Vaccination Record
Students are reminded of the importance of uploading their vaccination information as the deadline of August 1 is rapidly approaching. Uploading the information is easy and only takes a minute or two, and it enters students into a drawing to possibly win $500 gift certificates.
Rutgers strongly encourages all faculty and staff to be vaccinated and asks them to upload their vaccination cards to the vaccine portal. Knowing the number of vaccinated employees will help the university in returning to full campus operations and easing restrictions in accordance with public health guidelines.

Others may call Rutgers’ Vaccine Scheduling Assistance Program at 848-445-3033, Monday–Friday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. to make an appointment.
