COVID Vaccines

All students coming to campuses in the U.S. this fall who do not have exemptions are required to be vaccinated. Free, onsite vaccine clinics are available throughout the summer, and will be available upon arrival for those traveling to the U.S. International students arriving from abroad who may not have access to a U.S.– or World Health Organization-authorized vaccine before returning to campus will have a grace period until September 30 to submit proof of vaccination.
Fully remote individuals, including 100 percent online students, are exempt from the compliance restrictions only if they will never be visiting JHU or traveling on behalf of JHU. They are not required to change their status in Prodensity, but are encouraged to do so.
