Sycamore Community Health Initiative

The university has decided that as of Jan 1, 2022, all students and employees on campus will need to either upload proof of covid-19 vaccination or regular negative tests (likely weekly or bi-weekly). All indications are that this will indeed be enforced. The strong preference is that people be vaccinated (just like students have always been required to show proof of a number of other vaccines, including MMR, Td, Tb, Meningitus).

You can be vaccinated on campus (as of November, every Tuesday and Thursday 1-4:30pm at the ISU Health Center) or in the community (you can search for sites through the state, or schedule directly with any local pharmacy). Note that it takes 6-7 weeks from your first shot to be considered fully vaccinated (two weeks after your second dose you are considered fully vaccinated, and the second does is 3-4 weeks after the first).

Once you are fully vaccinated, please upload your vaccine card in the ISU portal (look for the Covid-19 Vaccination Record app in the portal).
