As of 12:01am EDT on May 12, 2023, noncitizen nonimmigrant air passengers will no longer need to show proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to board a flight to the United States. See here for more information.
The city of Philadelphia has also dropped its COVID-19 vaccination mandate for students and employees at higher education institutions. Effective immediately, Temple University no longer requires COVID-19 vaccination for students, faculty or staff. Temple University strongly recommends that students, faculty and staff stay current on the vaccination, including booster recommendations, as the COVID-19 vaccine continues to prevent severe disease. Please note that students, faculty and staff working in healthcare settings are still required to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
