Vaccination Requirements and Expectations

Vaccination Requirement

Reunion attendees are required to comply to the following:

  1. Self attest during registration that they will be fully vaccinated before their arrival to campus (if you are registered, you have already done this).

  2. When arriving to campus, attendees will need to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination*. 

The vaccine must be:

  • Authorized for use by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (includes Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and Johnson and Johnson [J&J]/Janssen) OR

  • Authorized by emergency use by the World Health Organization (e.g. AstraZeneca/Oxford, Sinopharm, Sinovac, **NOTE** Sputnik is NOT approved)

    On a daily basis while on campus, attendees are required to complete a daily health attestation for the university: http://visitorhealth.stanford.edu


*In order to meet the definition of fully vaccinated, you would need to have received your final vaccine dose no later than October 5th (for a single dose vaccine) or 6th (for a two dose vaccine). 


Check-in & Documentation Requirements

Our check-in process will require a review of your COVID-19 vaccine by our staff in order to gain entry to the event. Attendees must bring a government issued photo ID that matches the name and information on vaccination documentation.

  • For proof of vaccination status: a hard copy, photo-copy, or digital copy of the vaccination card will be accepted. For international travelers, a signed doctor’s letter with medical provider license number and date, or official government document will be accepted.*

    • Vaccination documentation should clearly indicate: 

      • Full Name

      • Birthdate

      • Vaccine name/manufacturer

      • Date(s) of vaccination 

Digital Covid-19 Vaccine records will be accepted as proof if all pertinent info is visible. We will NOT be scanning QR codes, and we will not be storing any information. 

Exemptions* approved through the Office of Diversity and Access will need to provide a negative test taken within 72 hours of coming to campus.  Negative tests dated before October 19, 2021 will not be accepted.

  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or LAMP test should clearly indicate:

    • Full Name

    • Birthdate

    • Type of test (we are only accepting PCR and LAMP at this time)

    • Date of test

    • Test result

International Documentation Requirements

International Travelers are required to show a negative test result taken no sooner than day 5 of their arrival to the United States.  Attendees are not allowed to be on campus until this time, and will be asked to provide: 

  • Proof of date of arrival to the state 

    • Boarding pass with applicable information.

  • Proof of Full Vaccination

  • Proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR or LAMP test should clearly indicate:

    • Full Name

    • Birthdate

    • Type of test (we are only accepting PCR and LAMP at this time)

    • Date of test

Once Documentation is confirmed, a Reunion Name Tag/Credential will be issued, and this will act as proof of vaccination and compliance with University expectations regarding COVID-19.
