Additionally, the CSU system announced on December 22, 2021, that all CSU faculty, staff, and students must receive a vaccine booster shot in order to be fully immunized against the virus that causes COVID-19.

Vaccination and Booster Exemptions

To be excused from the vaccine requirement set forth in the CSU’s COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy (CSU’s Policy), you must qualify for a medical or religious exemption.

Type of Exemptions

Medical Exemption: due to a medical (including mental health) condition for which an approved vaccine presents a significant risk of a serious adverse reaction. Any medical exemption must be verified by a certified or licensed healthcare professional and submitted to the university
