Vaccines empower us to resume our lives together. In order to help ensure a safe and healthy learning environment at Wagner College, all students will be required to complete a full course of vaccination against Covid-19 at least two weeks before coming to campus for the 2021-22 academic year. This requirement is in accordance with the recommendations of the American College Health Association and the State of New York.
All students, except those with approved exemptions, will be required to submit an electronic copy of their Covid-19 vaccination documentation before they arrive at the Wagner College campus by uploading it through wagner.studenthealthportal.com
The college will accept all vaccines against Covid-19 authorized by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO). For more information, please review our Vaccination Frequently Asked Questions.
We recognize that some students, particularly our international students, may be unable to access a vaccine before arriving on campus. We will work closely with those individuals to facilitate vaccination in the U.S. as soon as possible.
The following websites will help you locate a vaccination site and schedule an appointment:
- New York State's Vaccine Eligibility Screening Tool
- New York State Vaccination Sites
- New York City Vaccination Sites
- New York City Hospital Vaccination Sites
Additionally, New York State (NYS) and New York City (NYC) have each launched hotlines which may be used to schedule a vaccination appointment:
- NYC: (877) VAX- 4NYC (1-877-829-4692)
- NYS: (833) NYS - 4VAX (1-833-697-4829)
This policy is subject to change based on the status of the Covid-19 pandemic and relevant requirements and recommendations from federal, state, and city health authorities. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please reach out to the Center for Health & Wellness at studenthealthservice@wagner.
Please note that vaccine policies for employees will be determined and shared with faculty and staff later this summer.
