You will use the Student Health Center (SHC) Portal. Check out our step-by-step guide for detailed instructions to upload your vaccine card. We recommend you use the portal on a computer instead of a mobile device.
If you are both a student and an employee at NYU, when you log into the SHC Portal to submit your proof of vaccination, you will be prompted to choose between your student profile or your employee profile. Please use your student profile in order to fulfill the student vaccination requirement. The data from this profile will also be counted towards your faculty/employee vaccination upload requirement.
NYU is currently accepting FDA-authorized and WHO-listed vaccines.
All international immunization documents must be translated into English prior to submission.
Please see guidance for students who only have access to vaccines that are not FDA-authorized or WHO-listed.
Contact the site where you received your vaccine. They may be able to provide you with proof of vaccination. You can also contact your state’s health department. Some states have registries that include adult vaccines.
If you made an error, you can update your record at any time. Follow the upload instructions to upload a different file or make a correction to the vaccine dates and type you entered.
After you complete the upload process, it will take our team about five business days to review your information. If there are any issues with your proof of vaccination, we will contact you by email.
You do not need to check the status of your upload. We will contact you if there is a concern. If you wish to check your status, log into the SHC Portal and use this guide to determine the status of your submission.
Our team will review your latest submission within about five business days. If there are any questions about your submission, our team will email you directly. Otherwise, you should assume your submission has been successful.
