COVID-19 Vaccinations

COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all students prior to their arrival on campus. Exceptions may be made for those who qualify for an exemption.

COVID-19 mRNA vaccines (Moderna and Pfizer) may cause false negative TB test results. If you are getting your COVID-19 vaccine this summer, be sure to get your TB test before or on the same day as your first dose of the vaccine, or wait 4 weeks after the second vaccine dose to get your TB test. The COVID-19 vaccine takes priority, so if you are not able to get your TB test before you arrive on campus, we will perform your TB test at the SU Health Center when you are eligible.
