COVID-19 Vaccine

California is allocating COVID-19 vaccines as they become available to the population. Vaccinations are prioritized by age and risk. You can check to see if you are eligible for the vaccine at:

Vaccination Requirements for Return to Campus

The University of San Francisco will require all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as all faculty and staff employees, to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The vaccine requirement will go into effect at the start of the fall semester on August 23, 2022. The deadline for new incoming students is August 15, 2022.

As of January 5, 2022, COVID-19 boosters will be required for all students as soon as you are eligible. Students must upload your updated vaccination information to Med Proctor when they receive their booster. If you already received a university-approved vaccination exemption, this new requirement does not apply to you. If you are unable to get a booster prior to returning to USF, you will be able to receive it at a booster clinic on campus or at the USF Student Health Clinic.

If you have received your COVID-19 vaccine, either dose 1 and/or 2, and booster please upload all vaccine results to Med+ProctorPlease note: students only need to provide their USF email, student ID and name to create their account. After registering your information and completing your free online profile, you may choose to pay an optional one-time fee of $10 for membership benefits, but it is not required.

COVID-19 Exemptions

With proper documentation, USF will accept medical exemptions and religious beliefs exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine requirement and not the booster. Medical exemption requires a letter from a health care provider stating that the immunization is medically contraindicated. Religious beliefs exemptions will only be accepted for the COVID-19 vaccine (and not other USF-required immunizations). An exemption requires a signed written statement from the student describing the reason for the exemption. Statements must be signed and submitted to USF Health Promotion Services.

If you'd like an exemption form please email the Director of Health Promotion Services, Natalie Macias at nrmacias@usfca.edu to request an exemption form.
