Where do I upload my vaccination record?

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.

I'm both a student and an employee – which profile should I use within the SHC Portal?

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.

Which COVID-19 vaccines is NYU accepting?

NYU is currently accepting FDA-authorized and WHO-listed vaccines.

All international immunization documents must be translated into English prior to submission.  

Am I required to upload proof I received a booster shot?

If you receive a booster shot, you are not required to upload proof at this time.

I obtained a vaccine that isn’t accepted by NYU. Should I still submit it?

Please see guidance for students who only have access to vaccines that are not FDA-authorized or WHO-listed.  

I lost my vaccine card.

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.

I have two vaccine cards.

If you received separate vaccine cards for each dose of a multi-dose vaccine (e.g., Pfizer, Moderna), please upload a photo or scanned copy of the front of each card.

I made a mistake uploading my vaccination documentation (e.g. card photo).

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.

How do I know if my proof of vaccination was accepted?

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.

I completed the process, but my account still says “Not Compliant” and “Not Satisfied.”

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.

You can check the status of your submission in the SHC Portal.  Use this guide to determine the status of your submission.

How do I know when I can stop testing?

As of June 7, you are no longer required to participate in the ongoing testing program if you satisfy the following criteria:

  1. It has been two weeks since your final vaccine dose,
  2. You received an FDA or World Health Organization authorized vaccine, and
  3. Your proof of vaccination has been determined “Status: Compliant” and “Details: Satisfied” in the SHC portal.

Students, faculty, and employees who are fully vaccinated and develop symptoms of COVID-19 are still required to complete the self-report form to determine whether or not testing is recommended.

I’m having trouble using the SHC Portal.

The SHC Portal displays best on a desktop or laptop computer. We recommend you use the portal on a computer instead of a mobile device.

Check out our step-by-step guide for detailed instructions to upload your vaccine documentation (e.g. card) and related information.

Do I need to update my personal information in the SHC Portal?

You are welcome to review the “Profile” and “Personal Details” sections of the SHC Portal, but it is not required to upload your vaccine card. If you notice any errors in a field you can not edit yourself, please contact StudentLink or PeopleLink for assistance.

How are you maintaining the security of my vaccine information?

The SHC Portal is HIPAA compliant. The information you provide will be used to prevent and respond to the presence of COVID-19 on campus and to comply with federal, local and University public health guidelines. The information will be maintained in accordance with all applicable laws and public health regulations.

How will vaccination data be used?

Vaccination data will be used to prevent and respond to the presence of COVID-19 on campus and to comply with federal, local and University public health guidelines. The information will be maintained in accordance with all applicable laws and public health regulations.

I have questions about the vaccine requirement.

Please review the Vaccine Requirement FAQ for information about medical and religious exemptions, what to do if you can’t obtain a vaccine that is authorized for use in the United States, the vaccine requirement for individuals who already had COVID-19, and more.
