New York state has developed a phased approach to distribute COVID-19 vaccines. As of April 6, all New York state residents at 16 and over are eligible to receive the vaccine.

Cornell intends to require vaccination for students returning to Ithaca, Geneva and Cornell Tech campuses for the Fall 2021 semester. At this time, Cornell is not requiring our employees to be vaccinated; however, we strongly encourage all members of our community to be vaccinated when eligible. Vaccination is key to the resolution of this global pandemic, and we hope that all take this opportunity to protect yourselves, as well as our community.
