  • The university requires that eligible community members provide proof that they have received their COVID-19 vaccine and at least one COVID-19 booster, unless they have a medical or religious exemption. Those who have already received a vaccine exemption do not need to request an additional exemption for the booster. As a reminder, you are eligible for your booster six months after you have received two doses of Pfizer, Moderna, or WHO approved two-dose COVID-19 vaccines or two months after you have received the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

    Upload your vaccine and booster information in Vax LMU using your phone or tablet (learn how to access your COVID-19 vaccine records) as soon as possible and prior to your arrival on campus. You can find a booster site near you at vaccines.gov. For questions, students should contact studentaffairs@lls.edu; faculty and staff should contact hr@lmu.edu

    Those who have a religious or medical exemption, or are not yet eligible to be fully vaccinated and boosted, are required to test weekly at the LLS COVID Testing Center.

  • Fully vaccinated individuals are exempt from future testing requirements. Please submit your vaccine confirmation via the Vax LMU portal to be eligible. Note, managers and colleages cannot ask an employee or student about their vaccination status.
