COVID-19 Vaccination FAQ

Bucknell is requiring students to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Aug. 1, 2021, to allow a safe return to in-person instruction and the vibrant, residential and interactive community that creates the full Bucknell experience. The vaccine offers the best opportunity for students to be able to gather safely beginning in the fall, with reduced need for sequential testing, quarantine and isolation.
