Dear Tulane Community:
Recently, the CDC and the Louisiana Department of Health approved recommendations for a third COVID-19 vaccine booster shot for those who have completed the initial Pfizer vaccine series. The Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines have not been authorized for an additional dose yet. Many in the Tulane community meet one or more of the criteria for receiving a third Pfizer vaccine.
As a service to those faculty, students and staff eligible to receive a Pfizer booster, Tulane has reopened its Vaccine Clinic in the lobby of the JBJ building, 1324 Tulane Avenue. 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.
To make an appointment to receive your booster vaccine, please use this link and choose "Third Dose" for the appointment reason. The consent form must also be completed, signed and brought to your scheduled appointment. Individuals should also bring their vaccine card for verification. If you should have any questions, please email email@example.com. Family and friends of Tulane employee can also request a booster appointment by sending their name and phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. A representative will call individuals back to schedule their appointment. Pfizer booster vaccines are also available at many area pharmacies.
Please Note: Vaccination status does not preclude Tulane University COVID-19 testing requirements. All individuals on campus, regardless of vaccination status are required to complete COVID testing when they receive their QR code.
The categories of individuals eligible for a Pfizer booster are listed below.
The list of underlying medical conditions includes:
Individuals who are unsure if they should get a booster, should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition and ask whether getting an additional vaccine dose is appropriate for them.
