All Miamians are strongly encouraged to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. You have the option to report your vaccination status via MedProctor. Please note medical records will need to be translated to English before uploading.

Submitting COVID-19 records that show you are fully vaccinated can exempt you from testing and quarantine requirements. Also, students who submit COVID-19 vaccine records can participate in the "Your SHOT to Win" contest and have the opportunity for prizes, including tuition credit for one semester, bookstore gift certificates, hockey tickets, laptops, and more.

Miami University will recognize COVID-19 vaccines authorized by the FDA (Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen/Johnson & Johnson) and those vaccines authorized by the WHO (AstraZeneca; Covishield/Serum Institute of India; Sinopharm/BIBP; Sinovac). Please note the U.S. does not have access to the WHO-approved vaccines. 

Students who have received a single dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine may receive the 2nd dose at Miami as long as Miami has the vaccine in stock and you provide your official vaccine card at your appointment containing the following information: date of the vaccine, lot number, manufacturer and signature/stamp of the medical personnel who administered the vaccine. If you do not have this information, you will have to start the series over.
