CUNY Vaccination Requirements
All CUNY students who do not have an approved medical exemption or religious exception are required to be fully vaccinated to attend an in-person or hybrid class. Booster shots are encouraged, but not required.
Instructions to upload your vaccination documentation are available here.
- You do not have to submit COVID-19 vaccination documents if you they were previously approved by another CUNY college
- Medical and religious exemptions can be requested via the Vaccination Verification portal in CUNYFirst
- It generally takes 24-48 business hours for documents to be reviewed
Continue to stay updated on our COVID-19 guidelines by visiting the CUNY website or the Student Vaccination Mandate FAQs.
Vaccination Sites on CUNY Campuses
CUNY currently hosts three City-run vaccination sites on the following CUNY campuses: City College, Lehman College, and Queensborough Community College. While these sites originally provided us with weekly vaccine allotments for faculty and staff, the City has now agreed to expand the allotments at the sites to include CUNY students as well as neighboring CUNY campuses. CUNY is working out the details of this expansion and how best to provide access to students and other campuses.
