Important Guidance for ONSITE Students in Winter Institute 2025

Special Considerations for ONSITE Bloomberg School Winter Institute Courses

Coronavirus Protocols: You may view the Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 protocols in full here:

Proof of Influenza vaccination: For onsite students in the Winter Institutes taking courses for academic credit, it is required to submit proof of a valid recent Influenza vaccination. 

Students may apply for medical or religious exceptions as per JHU existing policy.

  • JHU degree students and students taking courses for academic credit should use the JHU Vaccine Management System (VMS) to submit their proof of vaccination or to request an exception. 
  • Participants taking courses not for credit will not be able to use the JHU Vaccine Management System (VMS), and must email their proof of vaccination or request for exemption to their course coordinator.


Please note that the Bloomberg School will be closed for winter holidays from Tuesday December 24, 2024 through January 1, 2025; no staff will  be available during this closure, and some staff may be taking additional personal leave during the holidays, so students should be proactive in contacting staff well before these holidays start. 

Thank you in advance for your compliance with the Bloomberg School’s important health and safety protocols.
