Some changes are coming to the Syracuse University campus to maintain the health and welfare of the school's academic community.

When classes resume in January for the spring semester, there will be some new public health policies from the university, one of which is a COVID-19 booster shot requirement for eligible students, faculty and staff.

With data and counsel from public health experts indicating that booster shots are critical to enhancing immunity and public health, Syracuse University will require all eligible students, faculty and staff who routinely access any SU campus location or facility to get a booster shot prior to the start of the spring semester, or as soon as they become eligible.
