Vaccines Off Campus
All adults in the U.S. are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and vaccines are widely available. Some adults are now eligible under New York State criteria to receive a booster shot, as well. We strongly urge everyone in the NYU community to seek a vaccine where available. You are not required to get vaccinated on campus.

Please consider the following guidelines when scheduling your vaccine appointment.
- You can not get vaccinated if you currently have COVID-19. You should wait until you meet the criteria to end home isolation before getting vaccinated.
This guidance also applies to people who get COVID-19 before receiving their second vaccine dose.
- In some locations, you can not get vaccinated if the results for your most recent COVID-19 test are still pending. Please coordinate the timing of your appointment to ensure you will not have pending test results.
- If you have had a severe or immediate allergic reaction (e.g., anaphylaxis) to another vaccine you should talk to your healthcare provider about whether or not the COVID-19 vaccine is right for you.
Anyone living in the five boroughs can register to be contacted by the City to schedule an in-home vaccine.
We strongly urge you to get vaccinated anywhere a vaccination appointment is available.
