COVID-19 Vaccine

About the COVID-19 Student Vaccine Mandate

Under a vaccine mandate approved by the Board of Education, San Diego Unified will require students who are 16 and older as of November 1, 2021 and who wish to continue learning in-person to be fully vaccinated, effective January 24, 2022 at the start of the new semester/quarter.

To meet these mandate requirements, it is recommended that students receive their first dose of the fully FDA approved Pfizer vaccine no later than November 29, 2021 in order to receive their second dose by December 20, 2021, which will allow for peak immunity to be reached before returning to school from the winter break on January 4, 2022.

It is advised that all students receive their first and second COVID-19 vaccines prior to January 4, 2022 in order to submit full documentation by January 3, 2022 and avoid conditional in-school enrollment or alternatives to in-school education.

For more details on the student vaccine mandate, please refer to the vaccine mandate Board report.

More details are also available in this letter that was sent to families on November 9, 2021 and in the Student Vaccine FAQs.
