COVID-19 (fall 2021): In anticipation of an in-person fall 2021 semester, Cabrini University is requiring all faculty, staff, and students to be fully vaccinated by August 15, 2021. As a reminder, full vaccination is achieved two weeks after the final injection of the vaccine—that is, two weeks after the second injection of a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after receiving a single-injection vaccine. This means you should receive the final dose of your vaccination by August 1.
Please see cabrini.edu/COVIDvax for additional details.

Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR): Two doses are required.
- Dose one of MMR must be administered after the first birthday, and the second given a minimum of four weeks later.
