All George Mason University students are required to submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination by August 1, 2021.

Students who have limited access to authorized COVID vaccines, email the Immunization Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) before August 1 to request a deadline extension. Upon receipt of your email, the Immunization Office will provide you instructions on the extension period and how to meet this vaccination requirement.
