Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19 vaccinations
Questions abound about what students should do regarding vaccinations as they prepare to begin classes in fall 2021.
Are students required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend suny old westbury?
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has announced that students at SUNY and CUNY colleges and universities will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before arriving on campus this fall. This requirement applies to you if you are enrolled in at least one in-person class or visit campus for any reason, including to conduct research; work on campus; participate in athletic practices; or visit the library, academic buildings or other campus facilities.
However, this requirement is contingent upon final approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the COVID-19 vaccines that are currently being administered under emergency use authorization. We anticipate that the FDA will formally take up approval of the vaccines soon.
Further, SUNY Old Westbury has announced that all students who wish to live in campus residence halls must be vaccinated against COVID-19 before arriving for move-in.
Students presenting evidence of their vaccination status are asked to do so by August 8, 2021. Submit your proof of vaccination now to the Student Health Center via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUNY Old Westbury strongly encourages students to get vaccinated for COVID-19 as soon as possible, and ideally before arriving on campus this fall.
For International Students
Will suny old westbury accept any vaccine that has been approved by W.H.O.?
Yes, The New York State Department of Health has advised, in accordance with CDC recommendations, that completing a WHO-approved vaccine series is acceptable as proof of being fully vaccinated.
The current list of WHO-approved vaccines is available online. A vaccine is approved if "Finalized" appears in the column called "Status of Assessment."
What do I do if I have already been vaccinated with a non-WHO approved vaccine?
There is currently no guidance from SUNY, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or the New York State Department of Health that addresses this question. SUNY Old Westbury hopes and expects that New York state will allow any international student who was not able to receive a World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccine to receive an approved vaccine when they arrive in Binghamton.
How do we deal with vaccination records that are not in English?
All health information requirements must be presented in English or accompanied by a translation. Students who require translation of documents can use one of the many translation services available on the internet.
