Vaccination Guidance for Colleges and University Settings

MSDH recommends that all eligible students, faculty, and staff receive COVID-19 vaccination.

Vaccination remains the primary public health prevention strategy to end transmission and allow for safe participation of in-person classes and sponsored activities. 

Advantages of having the eligible students, faculty, and staff fully vaccinated (2 weeks after the second dose of vaccine in a 2-dose series, or 2 weeks after a single dose vaccine):

  • Keep the learning environment safe for in-person learning.
  • Lower the risk of transmission and reduce the severity of illness if infected.
  • Limit disruptions to in-person learning and other activities.
  • If exposed to COVID-19, no quarantine is necessary for fully vaccinated individuals unless symptoms develop, keeping students and staff fully engaged.
