COVID-19 Vaccine Update for Students

April 14, 2021

Dear Tulane Undergraduate, Graduate and Professional Students:

The State of Louisiana has expanded eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines to include anyone age 16 and older. Getting vaccinated now means you will be able to travel home more safely and you won’t have to worry about finding vaccine shots in your home city/state. Sign up today to get vaccinated and be in the running to win some great PRIZES!

Today through May 3rd, if you do these two things:
  • GET vaccinated
  • REPORT your vaccination with Campus Health by May 3rd (either the Johnson & Johnson one-shot, or BOTH shots of Moderna or Pfizer) If you receive your vaccine from the Tulane Vaccine Clinic, your vaccination will be reported automatically.

You will be entered into a drawing for some fantastic PRIZES, including: AirPod Pros, AirPods, an iPad, or WaveBucks for Fall 2021!

Be sure to follow the Campus Health Facebook and Instagram channels for additional prize announcements!

Testing Required Regardless of Vaccine Status

All faculty, staff, and students are required to participate in ongoing surveillance testing throughout the semester regardless of vaccine status or the presence of antibodies from a previous COVID-19 infection.

Please Report Your Vaccinations

If you have completed the full vaccine sequence from an entity outside of Tulane, please update your vaccination records through the Campus Health Patient Portal. If you have been vaccinated at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic, your record will be updated automatically.

For Those Not Getting Vaccinated

If you choose to not receive the COVID-19 vaccine, we ask that you submit a Vaccine Declination Form so that we can have a true picture of how many in our community have received the vaccine and how many do not plan to get vaccinated. Completion of the declination form is voluntary. The form can be found in the Campus Health Patient Portal on the Forms Tab under the heading: COVID-19.

Other Vaccination Locations

You can receive the COVID-19 Vaccine at more than 40 pharmacies and other vaccination locations in the New Orleans area, including the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. To make an appointment at one of these locations please click here.

Vaccine Hotline

The State of Louisiana has a new Vaccine Hotline. The hotline number is 1-855-453-0774, and the hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.

The hotline will help residents schedule vaccine appointments, find vaccine providers in their area and connect people with medical professionals who can answer vaccine-related questions. In addition, the hotline will be able to schedule vaccine appointments.
