Elon Academy Vaccine Requirement Information

The Elon Academy will require scholars to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before our 2022 summer residential program. To be considered fully vaccinated, scholars must receive both doses of a two-shot vaccine and a booster shot (if eligible). This requirement is in accordance with CDC recommendations for institutions of higher education and Elon University policies.

The CDC and health experts have gathered definitive and substantial evidence demonstrating the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines in reducing spread of the virus and preventing serious or symptomatic illness. As we return to a residential summer program, this vaccination requirement is instituted for the protection of all our scholars, staff, faculty, friends and family, and campus visitors.

If scholars require a COVID-19 vaccine exemption for medical or religious reasons, a parent or guardian must complete an exemption form by May 13th, 2022. To request this form, please email the Elon Academy office at elonacademy@elon.edu.

Scholars should submit a copy of their vaccination card by May 13th, 2022 to the Elon Academy office via email (elonacademy@elon.edu). Scholars who previously submitted proof of vaccination but have since received additional COVID-19 vaccine shots (e.g. a second shot or a booster), should resend their updated vaccination record to the office email address.

Please direct any questions to Mrs. Denise Teeters at 336-278-6109.

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep all our scholars, faculty, and staff safe on campus this summer!
