Vaccine Information

In accordance with Northwestern University policy on COVID-19 vaccinations, students who wish to visit NUPOC must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Starting January 2022, NUPOC will require students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in their onsite practicum. Students who are not fully vaccinated or who received an exception may not be able to participate in the onsite portion of their education. NUPOC recognizes that some students cannot receive the vaccine for medical or religious reasons. In June 2021, NUPOC will provide information about exceptions to the vaccination requirement and how students may share their vaccination status. Starting in January 2022, International students who are unable to secure vaccinations in their home countries can request a temporary exception and be vaccinated upon arrival to campus. Additionally, international students who received a vaccine that is not authorized by the FDA or WHO may be eligible for a medical exemption following guidance from Northwestern Health Service. Please view the university's vaccination requirement FAQ for more details.
