Before going to Ciudad Universitaria, get your vaccination

The largest university in Mexico clarified that participation in face-to-face activities is not mandatory for those students, academic and administrative staff who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The UNAM pointed out that those students who for medical reasons cannot be vaccinated must present a certificate issued by the IMSS; in these cases, the Technical Councils will define alternatives for the accreditation of the aforementioned academic activities.

“As the evolution of the pandemic allows, the rest of the school activities will be gradually increased, for which and based on the established capacity, the list of students assigned to the groups will be divided, trying to alternate face-to-face with education to distance (weeks or periods online with face-to-face) in accordance with what the authorities of the different Faculties and Schools determine for this purpose, ”the statement said.

Finally, in the UNAM campuses, compliance with the federal health guidelines against COVID-19 must be observed, in particular the mandatory use of face masks.
