All Language Schools on-campus students must be fully vaccinated by June 10, unless they have a documented medical or religious exemption.

Students should make arrangements for their vaccinations now in order to meet the deadline. There will be more information about providing proof of vaccination to Middlebury College. Students who are not able to access vaccines before they come to campus are expected to register for an appointment in Vermont in advance.

Vaccination Appointment Registration

Students who are not able to access vaccines before they arrive must schedule their appointments as soon as possible via the Vermont Department of Health. As of April 29, Language Schools students from out of state are eligible to register for a vaccination in Vermont.

While we hope to offer a vaccination clinic on campus for individuals who are not able to be vaccinated before their arrival, we cannot guarantee it at this time. Therefore, students should register on the Vermont Department of Health now and sign up for vaccination appointments as soon as possible. Students must schedule their first vaccination appointment within three days of their June 24 arrival using either their home address or the Middlebury College address (14 Old Chapel Road, Middlebury, VT 05753).

Following are a few registration tips:

  • The Vermont Department of Health, Kinney Drugs (40 Court Street, Middlebury, VT; walking distance to campus), and Walgreens (363 Court Street, Middlebury, VT) all offer registration and email notifications about vaccination eligibility. Once you register, you will be able to make an appointment. We recommend students to register for an appointment in the town of Middlebury, and hope to provide a transportation service.
  • Daily registrations typically open at 8 a.m., but those with accounts may be able to make appointments up to 45 minutes before the published start time. 
  • Depending on availability, it may take a week or two to secure an appointment. You should check back regularly to see if earlier appointments become available due to cancellations or additional vaccine supply. 
  • Please remember to cancel any duplicate appointments to ensure availability for others.

Medical and Religious Exemptions

We recognize that individuals may have medical or religious needs that prevent them from receiving a vaccination. Students who need religious or medical exemptions may complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Exemption Form. There will be more information about providing proof of vaccination or the exemption form.
