Unvaccinated students at all 64 State University of New York campuses are now facing a COVID-19 vaccination deadline.

Due to the Pfizer vaccine being approved by the Food and Drug Administration on Monday, those individuals now have just over 30 days to receive their shots. In the meantime, they're still required to provide saliva samples for testing until they're fully immunized. Students can request an exemption to the mandate for religious or medical reasons during this grace period. Anyone who fails to meet the new rule will be unenrolled or have to take their courses remotely.
