We expanded our on-campus COVID-19 vaccine distribution to vaccinate students, faculty, and employees. Throughout the summer, all NYU community members who are eligible under state guidelines can schedule an on-campus COVID-19 vaccination at the NYU Student Health Center. Additional information about vaccination for students returning to campus in the fall will be forthcoming.

How It Works

Step 1: Schedule Your Appointment

Throughout the summer, students and employees who are eligible to receive a vaccine in accordance with state guidelines can schedule a vaccine appointment by calling the NYU Student Health Center's Department of Allergy, Immunology, and Travel Medicine at (212) 443-1188.

Additional information about vaccination for students returning to campus in the fall will be forthcoming.

If you already received your first dose elsewhere, you will need to return to that facility to receive your second dose. You must receive both doses of your COVID-19 vaccine at the same facility.

You should not schedule your vaccine at this time if any of the following apply to you.

  • If you had another vaccine recently, you should not schedule your appointment for a date at least 14 days after you received the other vaccine. Please do not receive any other vaccines in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment.
  • If you have a current COVID-19 infection 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 getting their second dose of vaccine.

You are not required to receive your vaccine at NYU. You can also get vaccinated though the City or State or through your healthcare provider or pharmacy.

Step 2: Complete Your Pre-Appointment Forms

You are required to complete documents on the day of your appointment, but before you arrive. They will be emailed to you on the morning of your appointment.

  1. New York State COVID-19 Vaccine Form must be completed before your first dose only.
  2. Health Screening and Consent Form must be completed before you receive both doses.
    • Log in to the SHC portal using your NYU Home Net ID and password
    • Click Consent Forms

Step 3: Get Your First Dose (and schedule your second)

  • Please arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment.
  • You must show your confirmation email to the Public Safety officer in order to enter the building. You do NOT need to be on a Returns List, have a recent Binx or NYU BioReference test result, or take the Daily COVID-19 Screener in order to enter the building to receive your vaccine.
  • Please have your University ID number (N number) ready when you arrive at check-in. The nurse will review your forms with you and schedule an appointment for your second dose.
  • Please wear clothing that will allow us access to the upper part of your arm. Your upper arm (deltoid muscle) must be easily accessible for us to administer your COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Remember to wear a face covering, keep 6 feet of distance between yourself and others, and follow all other health and safety protocols.
  • Tell your nurse if you have any concerns or if shots make you nervous. We’re here to help you feel comfortable! If you’re not feeling well on the day of your appointment, please stay home, reschedule your appointment, and complete the self-reporting form.
  • You must remain at the Vaccine Clinic for 15-30 minutes after your vaccination.

Step 4: Complete Your Pre-Appointment Form (again!)

You are required to complete the Health Screening and Consent Form before you receive each dose of your vaccine. It will be emailed to you on the morning of your appointment. You must complete your documents on the day of your appointment, but before you arrive.

Step 5: Get Your Second Dose

  • Please arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment.
  • You must show your confirmation email to the Public Safety officer in order to enter the building. You do NOT need to be on a Returns List, have a recent Binx or NYU BioReference test result, or take the Daily COVID-19 Screener in order to enter the building to receive your vaccine.
  • Please have your University ID number (N number) ready when you arrive at check-in.
  • Please wear clothing that will allow us access to the upper part of your arm. Your upper arm (deltoid muscle) must be easily accessible for us to administer your COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Remember to wear a face covering, keep 6 feet of distance between yourself and others, and follow all other health and safety protocols.
  • Tell your nurse if you have any concerns or if shots make you nervous. We’re here to help you feel comfortable! If you’re not feeling well on the day of your appointment, please stay home, reschedule your appointment, and complete the self-reporting form.
