What are Brown's vaccination and booster requirements?

Brown requires that all students, including visiting students or students who engage in any level of in-person instruction, whether in the U.S. or abroad, be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Medical and religious exemptions from vaccination will be granted to students and reasonable accommodations will be provided (as determined by applicable law). 

As conveyed to the full Brown community in December 2021, all Brown students (and employees) must receive a COVID-19 booster shot no later than Jan. 26, 2022 (the first day of classes of the spring semester), or within 30 days of becoming eligible. We recommend that eligible students get a booster shot as soon as possible. Please consult with your health care provider if you have questions about vaccines or booster.

Brown students can upload their vaccination cards (and proof of booster vaccinations, when applicable) directly to the Health & Wellness Patient Portal at: https://patientportal.brown.edu/

Visiting students should email their COVID-19 vaccination documentation directly to [email protected]
