Don’t Miss Your Shot
COVID-19 vaccinations are safe and effective. Vaccines are available on campus through the following: University Health Service, Occupational Health Services, and popup clinics when available. You can also use Vaccines.gov to find a location offering the COVID-19 vaccine near you, then call or visit their website to make an appointment.
Read the U-M Vaccination Policy here. The requirements in this policy are in addition to other vaccination requirements that may be applicable to faculty, staff, and students by their school, college, unit or third-party partners.
All U-M students residing in Michigan Housing on the Ann Arbor campus are required to submit documentation showing whether they are vaccinated for the below vaccinations in line with the CDC immunization schedule. All U-M students living off campus are encouraged to submit their records as well. This information will be shared with University Health Service for treatment purposes.
- COVID-19 vaccine*
- Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine
- Meningococcal A (MenACWY) vaccine
- Polio vaccine
- Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine
- Varicella vaccine (chicken pox)
U-M students who are not vaccinated with any of the above six (6) vaccinations may be asked to submit an attestation that states that they are not vaccinated and understand they may be subject to additional public health protocols should there be a public health need.
*The university highly recommends but no longer requires the COVID-19 vaccination. Students living in Michigan Housing for fall 2023 were required to receive a bivalent COVID-19 vaccine under a policy announced earlier in 2023. However, because the landscape of COVID-19 variants is evolving, the FDA has recommended the development of a new COVID-19 vaccine this fall that will target the dominant strains currently in circulation.
While no longer required, the bivalent COVID-19 vaccine still offers important protection both at the individual and community levels and everyone is encouraged to receive a dose of bivalent vaccine when they are eligible. In the fall semester, we will hold multiple clinics offering the latest vaccines for both COVID-19 and influenza.
You must have a UMICH ID and email address in order to submit vaccination information. Details on how to submit information are noted below. Contact the Health Response Call Center if you need assistance submitting your information. The call center can be reached at 734-936-7000, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Tips before your appointment
Before you schedule your vaccination, you:
- Must be past the appropriate timeframe to receive an additional shot if you previously received any COVID-19 vaccines, as recommended by the CDC.
- Should not have had an active COVID-19 infection in the past 10 days.
- Must bring your insurance card, if you have one, to your appointment.
