Back to Pratt: If I get vaccinated internationally with a vaccine that is not approved for Emergency Use Authorization in the United States, do I need to be vaccinated again when I arrive in New York?

For international students, Pratt is only accepting vaccines that have been authorized for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO) (see the WHO site for the latest list of authorized vaccines) as well as those authorized for such use by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. 

At this time no other vaccines will be accepted for campus access. However, students who have received vaccines that are not approved can still access the campus by arriving with a negative COVID-19 test and adhering to a regimen of weekly testing until their vaccine is approved. 

Students who receive vaccines approved for emergency use by WHO must submit proof of vaccination even if they submitted documentation in the past. Once the new submission has been approved, weekly testing to access campus will no longer be required.
