Vaccine Information for Plymouth State University Students and Employees
Why Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine is Important
The vaccine will help prevent you from contracting COVID-19, and will help prevent you from possibly spreading it to friends and loved ones.
Once you’re fully vaccinated, you won’t have to quarantine (and potentially miss work or on-campus school activities) if you are exposed to persons suspected of being COVID-19 positive, or if you travel out of the six New England states.
Beginning June 1, 2021 employees and students not living on campus for the summer who are fully vaccinated may submit their proof of vaccination to be excused from the weekly COVID-19 testing. Details and how to submit this information will be communicated in the coming weeks.
All students residing on campus over the summer, regardless of vaccination status, must continue to participate in weekly testing.
