ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Rochester Institute of Technology is extending its COVID-19 booster requirement deadline.

The school initially set the deadline as Monday, Jan. 31.

On Friday, just a few days before the deadline, RIT announced it’s pushing the deadline back almost a full month to Monday, Feb. 28.

In a message addressed to the "RIT Community" posted Friday, the school said, "While most of the campus community has gotten the booster, we will extend the booster requirement deadline from January 31 to February 28 to ensure that the rest of the RIT community has the time to meet the booster requirements."

It did not specify the amount of staff, faculty and students who had submitted the information beyond "most".
