COVID-19 Vaccine Requirements

Saint Joseph’s College of Maine prioritizes the health and safety of our entire community - students, faculty, and staff. All members of our community, including any residential or commuter student without a medical exemption, are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

What does fully vaccinated mean? 

  • Two Moderna or Pfizer vaccine doses, plus one booster shot, or
  • One Johnson & Johnson vaccine dose, plus one booster shot.

Students planning to attend in-person classes at SJC for the coming Fall semester must submit proof of full vaccination to the SJC Health and Wellness Center via this encrypted form by August 1, 2022. If you have not yet begun the vaccination process, you must receive your initial round of vaccine dose/doses by the same date.

If you have a valid medical reason for not receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact our Health and Wellness Center to discuss the process of validating your exemption. SJC does not accept religious exemption requests.

Additional booster shots may be required at a later date. The College’s Pandemic Response Team will make those determinations based on a variety of factors, including new recommendations from public health authorities.
