All Penn State faculty, staff and students are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and information on how to obtain a vaccine is available on the Pennsylvania Department of Health website. The University is building incentives for students and employees to be vaccinated, and more information will be forthcoming. Students at University Park and all Commonwealth Campuses can upload their vaccine information now into the MyUHS portal and are encouraged to do so as soon as their vaccine series is complete. Information on how employees can submit vaccine status will be announced later in May.

Verification of the Meningococcal Vaccination (MCV4)
Due to Pennsylvania state law, it is required that all on-campus housing residents present verification of a Meningococcal vaccination (Penn State requires the MCV4), after age 16, to UHS via Immunization Compliance. If you have previously turned in your records, please verify that you have the appropriate Meningitis vaccination (typically called Menactra or Menveo).
The University will amend its masking policy to align with recently released Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines that relax some outdoor masking recommendations for vaccinated individuals. However, masking requirements will remain in place throughout the summer and will be considered for fall dependent on recommendations from the CDC and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Additionally, the new CDC guidance calls for both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals to continue to wear masks in crowded outdoor settings.
