What does it mean if I’m fully vaccinated
Based on guidance from the CDC, fully COVID-19 vaccinated students and employees will no longer be required to quarantine following an exposure to someone with COVID-19 as long as they remain asymptomatic. These students and employees will still be required to monitor their symptoms and seek care for COVID-19 like symptoms and illness. Students and employees who are vaccinated are still responsible for following DePauw recommendations and requirements, including physical distancing standards and community mask usage.
In addition, fully vaccinated students and employees are no longer part of the asymptomatic testing pool for the 90 days following their second vaccination, consistent with students who have a COVID-19 diagnosis within the past 90 days.
From the CDC:
To be fully vaccinated, you will need two shots of some COVID-19 vaccines.
If you get a COVID-19 vaccine that requires one shot, you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your shot. Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen COVID-19 vaccine only requires one shot.
If it has been less than two weeks since your shot, or if you still need to get your second shot, you are NOT fully protected. Keep taking all prevention steps until you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after your final shot).
Where do I submit my vaccination information
If you are fully vaccinated and wish to report your vaccination status to the university, use these links:
Students who have received the vaccine should provide a copy of their completed vaccination card here.
Employees who have received the vaccine and wish to share that information with University can do so here.
About the Johnson and Johnson vaccine
While Indiana has approved vaccination of residents ages 16 and up, the Johnson and Johnson vaccine has NOT been approved for distribution to those under age 18. We will work with students ages 16 and 17 on other arrangements. Information about the Johnson and Johnson Vaccine is available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In addition, the Mayo Clinic has produced an information video, which may help answer some of your questions about the vaccine.
