RIT is requiring faculty, staff, and students to obtain a booster shot by May 15. However, if COVID-19 conditions change (e.g., a new variant), we reserve the right to reexamine our policies and set a new deadline. The best course of action is to get boosted as soon as you are eligible.
Booster eligibility time frame varies by vaccination and may change according to available data. If you were vaccinated with other WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccines, you are most likely eligible for a booster as well. See the CDC booster shot eligibility page for more information.
Students should upload their booster information to the Wellness Portal. Employees should upload their information into Oracle Employee Self-Service or the COVID Booster Information Upload page.
The COVID-19 Booster form will appear in the RIT Wellness Portal for any student who has submitted proof of a completed COVID-19 vaccine series. When eligible, students should receive their COVID-19 booster and complete the COVID-19 Booster form to submit proof of their compliance.
Students who have not submitted their COVID-19 vaccine series information yet will have the ability to include booster information in their COVID-19 Vaccine form -- submitting all vaccine information at one time. If they do not have their booster upon completion of the COVID-19 Vaccine form, they should submit proof of their completed COVID-19 vaccine series and will then receive a COVID-19 Booster form to complete at a later time.
