COVID-19 Vaccination and Booster

In support of Rutgers’ commitment to health and safety for all members of its community, the University has updated its Immunization Requirements for Students to include vaccination against COVID-19. (Read Policy 10.3.14 COVID-19 Immunization Record Requirement for Students). This health policy update means that, with limited exceptions, all students must be fully vaccinated and upload record of these vaccinations to the Rutgers Student Immunization Portal. A valid NetID and password are required.

The university requirements allow for medical and religious exemptions. As of May 16, 2023, booster doses will no longer be required unless an individual falls within the definition of a “Covered Individual” set forth in University Policy 100.3.1.


Please review information about COVID-19 testing for students on the COVID-19 Testing Program webpage.
