Vaccine Information

We will continue to update this website as more information becomes available about COVID-19 vaccine availability for our campus community.  

Saint Mary’s College is looking forward to welcoming you back to campus for the fall 2021 academic term, with primarily in-person instruction and a complete residential experience. An essential component of providing that experience safely is the requirement that all Saint Mary’s students whose coursework involves in-person instruction be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and report it to the College prior to arriving on campus in the fall.

We will continue to update you on the college’s planning for the fall, which continues to be grounded in the latest state and county public health guidelines. In the meantime, thank you for doing your part to keep our campus community healthy and safe.
