The University of Michigan understands that access to COVID-19 vaccines is variable worldwide and is committed to offering any community member who is in need of vaccination the opportunity to get vaccinated when they arrive in Ann Arbor. This includes students arriving from domestic locations as well as students arriving from abroad.
For the purpose of meeting U-M COVID-19 policies and quarantine and isolation requirements, the university recognizes vaccines that are authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization. The list of recognized vaccines may change; you can view the current WHO list on their website (look for the COVID-19 vaccine EUL issued list): https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/covid-19-vaccines.
U-M will assist those seeking to comply with U-M COVID-19 policies and requirements, as needed. This will include offering the opportunity of additional vaccination upon their arrival with a recognized vaccine, or requiring additional mitigation strategies (mandatory testing/quarantine requirements) for those vaccinated with a non-authorized vaccine or those granted an exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
