CSU Announces COVID-19 Immunization Requirement for Fall

April 22, 2021 - 1:05pm

The California State University today announced that beginning this Fall, all faculty, staff and students who access campus facilities will be required to be immunized against COVID-19.

The requirement will be conditional upon full approval of one or more vaccines by the FDA. This is a CSU decision and will be required of all campuses in the system. Consistent with the CSU’s policy for other required vaccinations, the COVID-19 vaccination requirement would allow for students or employees to seek an exemption based on medical or religious grounds. 

Read the full CSU press release here. 

Humboldt State University is still working out the details of the requirement for our campus. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated as soon as possible for the safety of themselves and the community, and to prepare for this requirement. More information will be provided when it’s available.

Humboldt County Public Health has opened vaccinations to those over 16 years old. 

If you have not yet been vaccinated and aren’t currently working with HSU Student Health & Wellbeing Services or a local pharmacy to receive a vaccine, you can sign up through MyTurn.ca.gov. See information in the County press release below: 

All Humboldt County residents age 16 and over can now sign up for COVID-19 vaccination appointments through My Turn. This includes people with or without medical conditions and from all sectors and occupations.

Residents age 18 and over can go to MyTurn.ca.gov to schedule an appointment. Public Health officials encourage people to sign up quickly for the first appointment available. 

The only vaccine approved for 16- and 17-year-olds is made by Pfizer. My Turn is not currently designed to screen clinics based on age, so residents must select a Pfizer clinic when registering. The next Pfizer clinic is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14.

Additional requirements for 16- and 17-year-olds to receive COVID-19 vaccination include the following:

  • A parent or guardian must accompany the vaccine recipient to the clinic and sign a consent form in person.

  • Proof of age is required. Vaccine recipients must be at least 16 years old at the time of vaccination.

Those who are unable to meet these requirements will be turned away from clinic sites.

Sign up today at MyTurn.ca.gov.
