In addition to our partnership with NYU Langone to help vaccinate as many eligible faculty and staff as possible, we are now expanding COVID-19 vaccine distribution on campus as part of the Student Health Center's program to vaccinate students. Following all State and City directions, we will contact members of the NYU community to confirm interest and schedule appointments as vaccine supply is available.

Updated: April 9

How It Works

Step 1: Invitation to Confirm Interest

If you are eligible to receive your vaccine in accordance with state guidelines and we anticipate receiving a supply of vaccines, you may be invited to complete the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest & Certification Form to certify your eligibility and confirm your interest in receiving your vaccine at NYU. Completing the form does not guarantee how or when you will get a vaccine; it just allows you to confirm your eligibility and interest so we can contact you when a vaccine is available.

If you are not currently eligible, please do not complete the form now. You will be invited to do so when New York State expands eligibility guidelines.

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.

We understand that many members of the NYU community are eager to be vaccinated. Nevertheless, please do not contact the NYU COVID Prevention & Response Team (CPRT), PeopleLink, StudentLink, or others to attempt to determine when you may be offered a vaccine. We will email you as soon as a vaccine is available for you.

Step 2: Schedule Your Appointment

Because there is far more demand than supply, not all eligible individuals will be invited to schedule an appointment right away.

When NYU receives a supply of vaccines, we will email a random selection of eligible individuals who completed the COVID-19 Vaccine Interest & Certification Form to invite them to schedule an appointment at NYU.

If you want to receive your vaccine at NYU, you must schedule your appointment within 48 hours. The appointment date you select can be any time over the following seven days, but you need to make the appointment within 48 hours of receiving the notification. If you do not take action within 48 hours, you will not be able to make an appointment at NYU.

To schedule your appointment:

  1. Log in to the SHC portal using your NYU Home Net ID and password
  2. Click Appointments, then Schedule an Appointment
  3. Select COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment
  4. Follow the prompts to schedule your appointment

COVID-19 vaccine appointments are limited to NYU community members who meet the New York State guidelines. If you are not currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in New York State, you will not be able to schedule an appointment at NYU.

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. Due to limited vaccine supply on campus, we strongly urge you to seek a vaccine where available such as through the City or State or through your healthcare provider or pharmacy.

Step 3: 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 Medical Clearances

Step 4: 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 5: 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 6: 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.
  • You must remain at the Vaccine Clinic for 15-30 minutes after your vaccination.
