East Lansing, Michigan – The deadline for eligible MSU students, faculty, and staff to receive a COVID-19 booster and submit information to the university is February 1.
Michigan State University President Samuel Stanley announced the deadline Tuesday in a letter to the campus community.
“As I informed you in mid-December, to help ensure the health, safety and well-being of all Spartans, the university has added booster buds to our COVID-19 vaccine requirements,” Stanley wrote.
He encouraged those eligible for reinforcements to make an appointment now, whether or not they return to East Lansing.
For those who are not yet eligible for a booster dose (five months after completing a Pfizer vaccine regimen, six months after Moderna or two months after Johnson & Johnson), you will have 14 days after you are eligible to comply, and you will receive reminders with Your eligibility deadline is approaching.”
When the booster information is entered, individuals will use the same system they used to record the original vaccinations. The vaccine form will begin accepting the booster submission on January 26.
Those with religious or medical exceptions will still be exempt from the booster requirement.
Anyone who fails to meet the February 1 deadline or does not submit the enhanced verification after 14 days of being qualified, will be subject to a university disciplinary process.
