Dear Members of the LIU Community,

As we enter into the winter break, we are thankful for your steadfast commitment to keeping our community safe and healthy.

While the positivity rate across our campuses remains low, the surge of the Delta variant along with news of the highly contagious Omicron variant, require us to take additional steps to safeguard the Long Island University community.

All students, faculty, and staff who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 booster must provide proof of successful completion in the University's Vaccination Portal. The portal will re-open immediately after the New Year and documentation will be due prior to the spring semester.

Please contact your physician or local health department for information about COVID-19 boosters. Booster shots are widely available at pharmacies, hospitals and other clinics throughout the country. For additional questions, students can email or call (516) 299-1200. Employees should call Human Resources at (516) 299-3522.

Your health and safety is always our number one priority and the COVID-19 booster is our best defense against this virus. Thank you again for doing your part to protect the LIU community.
