UAB is very concerned for your continued health and safety. Please consult the Students section of UAB United for up-to-date guidance, because the following information is subject to change as circumstances require.

We strongly urge you to be fully vaccinated. Here is information on the safety of vaccines and on how to get vaccinated at UAB. There are also incentives for getting vaccinated.

Mask-wearing has proven to be one of the most successful mitigation strategies used to combat spread of the various variants of the COVID-19 virus. UAB requires face coverings indoors on campus—regardless of vaccine status.  Students who do not follow this requirement can be reported to Student Conduct.
