Vaccination is not mandatory at CMU, but we strongly encourage every member of our university community to be vaccinated. Vaccines are a safe, effective way to protect yourself from serious COVID-19 illness and to slow the spread of the virus within our community. Students, faculty and staff who are not fully vaccinated will need to complete weekly testing.
Students, faculty and staff who are fully vaccinated and do not wish to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing may complete a voluntary vaccine attestation using the CMU COVID-19 Health Screen website or the smartphone app by Sept. 3

In July 2021, CMU sent students, faculty and staff an invitation to participate in an anonymous, voluntary vaccination status survey. The table below includes only figures
representing individuals who responded "Yes" to being fully vaccinated as a percentage of the total population.*
All data represent individual's status (or expected status for fall) as of July 21, 2021.
* For the percentages of those vaccinated, only figures for those who have responded "Yes" to being fully vaccinated against the total populations have been included,
instead of providing estimations with margins-of-error. Due to the possibility of the nonresponse error, those percentages may not represent the true vaccination rate,
whereas these percentages (while likely lower than the true vaccination rate) are accurate based on the responses submitted.
Protect yourself. Protect others.
