Dear international students and scholars,
This week, State of Connecticut has published a planned schedule for COVID-19 vaccination eligibility in the state of Connecticut. https://portal.ct.gov/Office-of-the-Governor/News/Press-Releases/2021/02-2021/Governor-Lamont-Announces-Connecticut-Will-Continue-Age-Based-Approach-To-COVID-Vaccine
International students have asked whether they will qualify for a vaccination under the state of Connecticut policy. It is our understanding that community vaccinations will be available based on where you work or live. Having a temporary visa status should not disqualify someone from receiving the vaccine, if otherwise eligible. We will provide international students with updates that would impact international students, if we learn of any.
Also, please watch for any announcements from UConn SHaW regarding vaccine updates for students. Vaccination programs available for students will include international students who otherwise meet eligibility requirements.
Please understand that this is an evolving situation, and much information has yet to be finalized. Please refer to the UConn SHaW COVID-19 information page for more student information. https://studenthealth.uconn.edu/updates-events/coronavirus/
