This weekly update via CU Boulder Today will continue through at least the week of Feb. 14 as campus officials continue to monitor and discuss Boulder County COVID-19 metrics in collaboration with Boulder County Public Health. Information will also continue to be shared on the campus COVID-19 information page. A change in county policy does not necessarily mean a change to campus policy. 


COVID-19 vaccine booster requirement: Proof of vaccination

  • To comply with CU Boulder’s updated COVID-19 guidance, members of the campus community are required to receive a vaccine booster shot by Feb. 24 or five months after receiving the final dose of the original series, whichever is later.
  • Students, faculty and staff must upload proof of boosters through the MyCUHealth portal.

COVID-19 vaccine booster requirement: Exemptions

  • There are no predetermined medical exemptions for the COVID-19 vaccination booster requirement. However, individuals who previously received a COVID-19 vaccination can file a medical or moral/ethical exemption and still be in compliance with the university’s vaccination reporting requirement if the exemption is filed by Feb. 24. 
  • Individuals who previously submitted an exemption do not need to take further action at this time and will be considered in compliance with current university vaccine reporting requirements. 
  • Students, faculty and staff must file for an exemption based on medical, ethical or moral grounds through the MyCUHealth portal.
