Everyone Ages 18 and Older Should Get a Booster Shot

December 2, 2021

Dear Tulane Community:

The CDC is now recommending that everyone 18 and older receive a COVID-19 booster shot, six months after completion of their primary COVID-19 vaccination series.

Choosing Your COVID-19 Booster Shot

You may choose which COVID-19 vaccine you receive as a booster shot. Some people may prefer the vaccine type that they originally received, and others may prefer to get a different booster. CDC’s recommendations now allow for this type of mix and match dosing for booster shots.

Scheduling Your Booster Shot

As a service to faculty, students and staff eligible to receive a booster, our uptown and downtown vaccine clinics are open. The Downtown Vaccine Clinic is currently operating in the lobby of the JBJ building, 1324 Tulane Avenue. The Uptown Vaccine Clinic is located in the 1834 Club on the second floor of the LBC. Appointments are required.

  • To make an appointment to receive your booster vaccine, please use this link and choose "Third Dose" for the appointment reason.
     
  • This consent form must also be completed, signed and brought to your scheduled appointment.
     
  • TO RECEIVE YOUR THIRD DOSE, YOU MUST PRESENT YOUR CDC VACCINE CARD OR LA WALLET APP. DUPLICATE VACCINE CARDS WILL NOT BE CREATED AT THE CLINIC. If you have any questions, please email covidvaccine@tulane.edu.
     
  • Booster vaccines are also available at many area pharmacies.
Flu Shots

Flu shots are required for undergraduate, graduate and professional students and highly recommended for all faculty and staff. Faculty and staff can schedule no-cost flu shots here. In addition, many local pharmacies (Walgreens and CVS) and retail outlets (Target, Walmart) offer vaccines at low or no charge to you.

Undergraduate, graduate and professional students can schedule a flu shot appointment at the Campus Health Center uptown or downtown. We request students schedule an appointment by calling 504-865-5255 and complete the online consent and paperwork, including uploading their insurance card prior to appointment. Students must bring their Splash ID and wear a shirt that allows us to roll up a sleeve. If you have never visited the Campus Health Center before, please fill out your patient forms on the Patient Portal before arriving.
