COVID-19 Vaccine Update

The University of Michigan understands that access to COVID-19 vaccines is variable worldwide and is committed to offering any student arriving on campus who is in need of vaccination the opportunity to get vaccinated when they arrive in Ann Arbor. This includes students arriving from domestic locations as well as students arriving on campus from abroad.

All students are strongly encouraged to self-report their vaccination information via Wolverine Access.

For the purpose of meeting U-M COVID-19 policies and quarantine and isolation requirements, the university recognizes vaccines that are authorized for use in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Act and the World Health Organization. Recognized vaccines currently include those made by Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson/Janssen, AstraZeneca (Covishield) and Sinopharm. The list of recognized vaccines may change; you can view the current WHO list on their website.

U-M will assist those seeking to comply with U-M COVID-19 policies and requirements, as needed. This will include offering the opportunity of additional vaccination upon their arrival with a recognized vaccine, or requiring additional mitigation strategies (mandatory testing/quarantine requirements) for those vaccinated with a vaccine not on the recognized list.

As an example, students planning to live in Michigan Housing (i.e. on-campus housing) in the fall are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, or to request an exemption from this requirement and follow additional mitigation strategies, such as weekly testing and following quarantine requirements for close contact exposures/travel. At this time there is not a vaccination requirement for those coming to campus for daily activities.
