COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Public Health Students

The COVID-19 vaccine is required for all SU public health students enrolled in HLTH 480: Internship in Public Health. Those students that are non-compliant with the USM COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate are not permitted to participate in this internship. Compliance means that a student is either fully vaccinated or has an approved medical or religious exemption. Unvaccinated students with exemptions will be required to participate in twice-weekly COVID-19 testing in order to maintain access to Salisbury University’s main campus and a rapid COVID-19 test every two weeks for our satellite campus at USMH. Students should be aware that internship sites are not required to recognize SU’s exemptions. As a result, unvaccinated students, including those with exemptions, may not be allowed to complete internship. As with other immunizations that hospitals and other sites require students to have, failure to have the COVID-19 vaccine can result in the internship site refusing to allow the student to participate. Students must be informed that, while they can enroll in public health or other CHHS programs, they may not be able to complete the program due to lack of required clinical hours.

If you decide that you would like to get vaccinated or learn more about the vaccines that are available, please contact
