Campus Health Update

May 27, 2021

Dear Tulane Community:

We have several important COVID-19 updates; please review this email thoroughly.

Please Report Your Vaccinations

All students are required to take or decline a COVID-19 vaccination. Employees are strongly encouraged to report their vaccine status.

  • If you have received a COVID-19 vaccine at a clinic other than the Tulane Vaccine Clinic located on the first floor of the JBJ Building, please report proof of vaccination through the Campus Health Patient Portal. If you need additional guidance, please review this online video tutorial.
  • If you were vaccinated at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic, your record will be updated automatically. No additional action is required from you at this time.
  • If you choose to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine for medical, religious, or personal reasons, you must submit a Vaccine Declination Form.

If you have any questions about COVID-19 testing or the Campus Health Patient Portal, please email  

For all COVID-19 vaccine questions, please email

Tulane University will be hosting a Town Hall to answer your questions about COVID-19 and vaccines on Thursday, June 3, at 3 p.m. This interactive session will include a panel of experts and people who have received their vaccines to answer your vaccine-related questions and to share their stories about why they chose to get the shot and what their experience was like.

Please mark your calendars and watch your email for the Zoom link next week!

International Students

International Students should upload a copy of their COVID-19 vaccine documentation into the Campus Health Patient Portal. We are currently accepting most international vaccines. You will be contacted if your vaccine is not accepted, and you need to be vaccinated again once you arrive on campus. If you are unable to get vaccinated prior to your arrival in the U.S., you should schedule your vaccine series as soon as you arrive in the U.S. Failure to report your vaccine status or scheduling your vaccine upon arrival in the U.S. may result in registration holds.  

All current Tulane policies related to COVID-19 will apply to you once you are on campus. If you are not vaccinated prior to arrival, you will be responsible for following the appropriate campus guidance.

International travelers should follow all current CDC guidance. You are responsible for any US travel quarantine and should plan accordingly, based on your situation and the guidance at the time of your travel. Current CDC Travel Guidance by location is available here.
