Occidental strongly recommends that all students, staff, and faculty are up-to-date on COVID-19 vaccinations. As of June 2023, there is no longer a vaccine requirement.

Updated 6/5/23

What it means to be “up-to-date”

  • Everyone aged 6 and older should get one updated (bivalent) dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to be considered up-to-date.
  • Those aged 65 and older may get a second dose of the updated vaccine.
  • People who are moderately or severely immunocompromised may get additional doses of updated vaccine, and should discuss this with their healthcare provider.

As COVID-19 and science evolve, the CDC’s definition of “up-to date” will change, and revised vaccination guidance will be provided as needed.
