U of T’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement

The University is encouraging all members of its community to get a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as they become eligible. New appointments are added daily to the provincial booking system and at local pharmacies.

Although you are encouraged to upload your booster information in the UCheck system, there is no requirement to do so at this time. This may become a requirement in the future. Learn more about booster information.

 

UCheck continues to be available for uploading proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Proof of vaccination can be a photograph of a paper vaccination receipt or an electronic receipt that you received by email. Those vaccinated in Ontario can generate and download their vaccine receipts here.

At this time, you are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving the recommended number of doses of a Health Canada-approved vaccine. If you received a non-Health Canada approved vaccine, you will be considered fully vaccinated 14 days after receiving a third vaccine to complete the primary vaccination requirements. The University will continue to monitor Ministry of Health and Public Health Agency of Canada guidance on additional doses. 

Although students who are not fully vaccinated may enrol in classes with in-person components as of May 1, vaccination requirements may be reinstated with little notice, which could result in de-enrolment.

The University will require students living in residence for the 2022-23 academic year to be vaccinated against COVID-19, including at least one booster dose. More information on this requirement can be found on the Vice-Provost Student’s website.
