Even though being "fully vaccinated", as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a key piece of proof for businesses, employers, and others who require vaccinations, there are still several questions. For instance, more and more health experts want the CDC to change its definition to include booster shots. Boosters are important because they ensure that people who get them are safe from the new COVID-19 Delta variant.

Vaccines are safe and effective medicines that teach your immune system how to fight certain germs that cause diseases. They have a very small amount of a virus, bacteria, or protein made in a lab that looks like a disease-causing organism.

When you get a vaccine, your immune system "remembers" the pathogen and makes antibodies to fight it (defence cells). This makes it easy for your immune system to react quickly if you encounter the same disease-causing organism again.

These antibodies can help you get better quickly and stop the disease from making you sick or killing you. This shows how important vaccines are.

Vaccines are also important because they keep certain diseases from spreading throughout the community. This is called "community immunity." People who can't get certain vaccines, like babies and people with weak immune systems, need this kind of protection even more.

A booster shot is a type of vaccine that you get after the first doses in your primary series. The CDC says that it strengthens your immune system and protects you from serious illnesses that could have hurt you otherwise.

Booster shots are needed because the first two vaccine doses may not be enough to protect you from COVID-19 and other diseases. Moderate to severely immunocompromised people may need an extra vaccine dose as part of their primary vaccine series, which means that illness or other things have weakened their immune system.

Most people have shown that booster shots are safe and work. They also make your immune system make more antibodies by telling it to make new antibodies that can find COVID-19 and fight it. Some people will have reactions at the place where they got the shot, but these are usually mild and don't bother them. Symptoms like the flu and tiredness can also be side effects.

Before attending classes in person or going to a CUNY facility, all CUNY students, faculty, and staff must be fully vaccinated (or have a religious or medical exemption). Proof of vaccinations must be uploaded to the CUNYfirst portal ten (10) days before the first day of class or a visit to a CUNY facility.

People can get out of getting the COVID-19 vaccine if they have medical reasons or sincere religious beliefs, practices, or observances. Requests must be made using the right exemption form by the vaccination deadline, and approved requests must be carried out as the University tells them to.

Most requests for disability accommodations, like exemptions from COVID vaccines, come from workers who have a medical condition that makes getting vaccinated unsafe or risky for them. In these cases, a medical provider usually needs to explain the condition. If this is documented, there are usually no questions about whether an employee has valid reasons for an exemption.

Vaccines protect babies and kids from many infectious diseases that can hurt them. They are given as shots to help build or boost immunity that has weakened over time. Usually, a vaccine has more than one dose, but some can be given together to help kids get fewer shots. This is true for the particular DTaP, IPV, and varicella vaccines.

In New York, all students between the ages of 2 months and 18 must have certain vaccinations to go to school. This includes daycare, Head Start, pre-K, and nursery school, as well as all public, private, and religious schools.

In NYS, you can't get out of getting vaccinated for school if you don't have a medical reason. The CDC says that if a child wants to go to or stay in school, they should get all required vaccines on time.
