Take time for yourself
It’s healthy to step away from studying and projects for physical and mental health breaks.
COVID-19 vaccine is available in the Rochester area for all people age 16 and over who live, work, or study in New York State. For an appointment, check the Monroe County vaccine webpage or the Finger Lakes region’s appointment finder (includes pharmacies), or call the county appointment line, 585-753-5555. You also can check the state website or call the state hotline, 833-697-4829. You only need proof of your date of birth and your student ID to be vaccinated.
Pfizer is the only vaccine approved for ages 16 and 17. Other vaccines such as Moderna are approved for ages 18 and up. The appointment websites typically indicate which brand of vaccine will be administered.
Commencement registration starts Friday
If you are part of the Class of 2021, watch your email for an important email Friday containing your link to:
- register to attend your Commencement ceremony (or to specify that you’re not attending)
- and to register up to two guests to attend your ceremony in person inside Golisano Training Center on campus
The message will provide other helpful details, including the steps to have additional guests elsewhere on campus.
Vaccinated? Uploaded? Winner drawn Friday
If you are fully vaccinated (meaning at least 2 weeks past your final dose), you are exempt from general surveillance testing on campus.
You need to take these steps to be removed from the testing pool — and students who’ve completed these steps by Friday will be in a drawing Friday to win a $50 Amazon gift card from Health and Counseling.
Students, after your vaccination:
- Log in to the Naz Student Health Portal.
- Under the “immunizations” tab, manually enter the date(s) of your COVID-19 vaccination.
- Use the “upload” tab to upload a screenshot of your official vaccine card. (Don't email it; upload it.)
Vaccinated student-athletes continue surveillance testing based on NCAA and Empire 8 regulations.
