I am reaching out to remind you of SUNY’s system-wide policy that requires all students to receive a COVID-19 vaccination booster as soon as they are eligible. Boosters have proven effective in limiting infection, reducing the severity of disease and reducing the strain on our local healthcare system.
You are eligible for a vaccine booster if:
Students vaccinated in New York state who submitted original vaccination information via myRedDragon DO NOT need to submit proof of booster. SUNY Cortland, in conjunction with the State Department of Health, will automatically check and record your booster.
If there are any issues with your record, SUNY Cortland will contact you by email with instructions on how to comply.
Non-New York residents and those who were boosted in a different state or country must provide a photograph of their vaccination record card through the vaccination submission portal in myRedDragon.
You should know:
Students who have tested positive for COVID-19 can get the booster once they have completed their required isolation period and symptoms subside.
In addition to pharmacies and healthcare providers in your area, you may choose to receive a booster at a Wegmans Pharmacy vaccine clinic that will be held on campus on Friday, Jan. 21. Details on how to register for that event will be shared with you soon.
I want to thank all who have already been boosted and those who will do so soon. It is a significant step in keeping the Cortland community safe.
All the best,
Erik J. Bitterbaum
