Is Penn State making the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for employees or students?

At this time, the vaccine is not yet available to the general public. When vaccines do become widely available, Penn State strongly encourages participation as part of the effort to mitigate the long-term impact of COVID-19 on our campus communities. More information will be forthcoming through the Pennsylvania Department of Health (which is overseeing the vaccine distribution) and the University, and as we weigh the pandemic’s continuing impact on our communities.
