Parents and Families


Your student is strongly encouraged to get vaccinated. Getting a vaccine is convenient and easy. Appointments remain available at many local and on-campus vaccination clinics:

  • Your student can learn how you can find a vaccination location near you to schedule an appointment here.

  • Mass vaccination sites are also available in both Washtenaw County and downtown Detroit. Signup information can be found on the Michigan Medicine Finding Vaccines webpage.
  • Second-dose-only appointments also are available through U-M, and nationwide through retail pharmacies, in the event individuals need to schedule their second dose elsewhere. For a second-dose appointment through U-M, individuals should call 734-763-6336 to provide information on their first-dose manufacturer and be scheduled.

  • After their final dose, students are strongly encouraged to submit their vaccination information through Wolverine Access to verify with the university they are fully vaccinated, which will exempt them from weekly mandatory testing and potential quarantine requirements.

It is important to note that if your student had a positive COVID-19 test, they can be vaccinated once they have recovered from their illness and have met the criteria for discontinuing isolation. This guidance also applies to people who get COVID-19 before getting their second dose of vaccine.
