Booster Vaccines

COVID-19 Information

All eligible Skidmore students, staff, and faculty are required to get a booster by the start of the spring semester or within 30 days of becoming eligible, unless you received a medical or religious exemption to Skidmore’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement. For exemption details, see link on this page.

Per the CDC’s current guidelines, individuals who received the Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine can receive a booster shot five months after completing their Pfizer or Moderna primary series and those who received Johnson & Johnson (J&J) can receive a booster two months after their first J&J vaccine.

Please submit proof of booster vaccination directly through the Skidmore Health Portal. If you received a booster at the on-campus clinic last year, you must still submit proof of booster application.

Individuals who are eligible for a booster but are not yet boosted, and who come into close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, must now quarantine for five days after the exposure (Day 0) and test on day five with a rapid antigen test.

At this time, Health Services is not offering administration of COVID-19 vaccines, but vaccines are widely available in the United States. Click here to "Find a COVID-19 Vaccine Near You.”
