All Residents and Commuters with On-campus Classes, Must Get a Flu Shot.

Posted in: Announcements, Deadlines, Featured News, Red Hawk News, Wellness

An annual flu shot is now required if you live in the residential halls or take in-person classes, work on campus or participate in on-campus functions.

The University will be providing FREE flu vaccines on campus to help you meet this requirement. (See on-campus flu clinic information below.)

Who Is Required?

  • All resident students.
  • Commuter students who are registered for in-person classes this academic year.
  • Students coming to campus for work or engagement in other campus functions. 

You can receive a shot at your local pharmacy, your medical provider or at an on-campus FREE flu clinic.

Deadline and How to Submit Documentation

The deadline to submit proof of your flu vaccine is: Wednesday, November 25, 2020.

If you get (or have already received) a flu shot at an on-campus flu clinic, your information is on file.

If you receive your vaccine at a pharmacy, retail location or physician’s office, you may submit your Flu Shot Documentation online, which must contain the following information:

  • Your full name
  • Date vaccine administered (must be on or after Saturday, August 1, 2020)
  • 2020-2021 Influenza/flu vaccine (not just that you got a “shot”)
  • Signature of medical provider and date

Requests for medical exemption should be submitted to the University Health Center ( as a written statement from your healthcare provider indicating the vaccine that is contraindicated and the specific medical condition. Montclair State reserves the right to approve or decline the exemption request.
