CSU Requires COVID-19 Booster Shots for Spring

Announced: December 22, 2021

To: Campus Community
From: President Gayle Hutchinson

The CSU system announced today that it will require all students, faculty, and staff to receive a COVID-19 booster by February 28, 2022, or five months after an individual received the final dose of their original vaccination, whichever is later. The decision to require boosters was made after close communication with public health officials and in response to the rapid spread of the highly contagious Omicron variant.

You are eligible for a booster five months after the second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or two months after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

I encourage eligible students, faculty, and staff to get your booster shots before returning to campus for the spring semester. Information about how to upload/update your records and the availability of booster clinics will be announced as soon as details are finalized.

We just completed a successful fall semester thanks to the high vaccination rate among our campus community. Boosters are the next step in keeping each other safe. Thank you all for your flexibility as we continue to prioritize the health of the Chico State community.

I wish you a happy, healthy, and restful winter break.
