In IU's weekly "Ask Aaron" seminar, Dr. Aaron Carroll announced that vaccinated IU students and faculty will not be selected for mitigation testing. Students and faculty are considered fully vaccinated two full weeks after their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Students, staff and faculty who are fully vaccinated will no longer be selected for mitigation testing through IU, Dr. Aaron Carroll said during the weekly “Ask Aaron” webinar. 

Someone is fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines or first dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, Carroll said. 

Additionally, any person who is in Indiana and meets vaccination requirements can receive a COVID-19 vaccine in the state, Dr. Lana Dbeibo said.

Dbeibo said people do not need an Indiana address to receive the vaccine. Anyone visiting, studying or working in Indiana for any amount of time could receive the vaccine in the state, she said. 

Anyone can receive their second dose of the vaccination in any state, as long as they meet the vaccine requirements, Dbeibo said. 

The university’s COVID-19 team will meet Wednesday to discuss opening different vaccination sites on IU campuses for all IU students, Dbeibo said.
