International students at the University of Maryland who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must fulfill their vaccination requirement within 30 days of arriving in the United States in order to be cleared to be on campus in the fall, according to the University Health Center’s website.
A seven-day self-quarantine upon arrival in the U.S. — plus proof of a negative PCR test taken three to five days after arrival — is also required for international students who are not fully vaccinated with an authorized vaccine, according to the website.
The authorized vaccines include Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca and Sinovac, per the health center.
The final deadline to complete the vaccination requirement for international students is Sept. 30.
The university “intends to provide the COVID-19 vaccine to unvaccinated students,” and will release information about campus vaccine clinics in August, the website says.
International students who are fully vaccinated with an authorized vaccine must submit documentation of their vaccination to the university and be tested for COVID-19 three to five days after they arrive in the U.S., the website says.
In April, Jay Perman, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, announced that COVID-19 vaccination is required for all students, faculty and staff who plan to be on campus for the 2021-2022 school year, unless they are exempt for a medical or religious reason.
“Mandating a COVID-19 vaccine is both a reasonable and necessary means of protecting the health and safety of the campus community,” student affairs vice president Patty Perillo and health center director Spyridon Marinopoulos wrote in a campuswide email Monday.
Students who have questions about vaccination requirements can contact the health center.
