Religious Exemption, for now…
Moving toward a return to pre-pandemic normal, Rutgers has announced that students planning to attend the university in Fall 2021 will be required to be vaccinated against COVID.https://t.co/hzirbleAYo— Rutgers University (@RutgersU) March 25, 2021
Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is mandating all students be vaccinated to return this fall.
Proof of vaccination will be required for all students planning to attend this fall. Any vaccine authorized for use in the U.S. (currently Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson) is acceptable. It is understood that some incoming students may be 17 years old, and may be only eligible for the Pfizer vaccine.
Students planning to attend the fall 2021 semester may request an exemption from the vaccination requirement for medical or religious reasons. Students enrolled in fully online degree programs (typically defined as having no access to on-campus facilities), as well as individuals participating in fully online or off-campus Continuing Education programs, will not need to provide proof of vaccination.
