COVID Response

A student vaccination mandate is now a requirement for all SUNY campuses. All students with at least one in-person class or who come to campus for any purpose must provide proof of receiving a full vaccination series. This includes, both doses of either Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the time of registration.

For the Spring 2022 semester, students must get their booster within 30 days of the timeline for the vaccination they received. For Moderna that is six months from their vaccination date, for Pfizer it is five months, and for Johnson and Johnson that is two months. For example, if you completed the Moderna vaccination on September 10, 2021 you must get the booster on February 10, 2022 or within 30 calendar days of that date. Search for a COVID-19 vaccination location. Find information about medical and religious exemptions. Vaccinated students are required to complete COVID pool-testing monthly.

WFD offers online courses through Ed2Go and Mindedge.
