I am an international student or scholar who has not had access to a COVID-19 vaccine in my home country. When and where can I get one?

May 21, 2021 (updated November 8, 2021)

As of Nov. 8, 2021, there will be a new COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all individuals seeking entry into the U.S. on a temporary visa. There are limited exceptions to this requirement, including for students and scholars coming from countries with limited access to vaccines. The criteria for this exception can be found at the CDC website. More details regarding the new COVID-19 vaccine mandate can be found here.
