Dear Tulane Community:
All of us long for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic and a full return to the lives we once knew. With the increasing availability of vaccines, the opportunity to end this historic public health crisis is on the horizon and, indeed, within our grasp. But, first, we must take the simple, but essential, step of getting vaccinated.
Vaccines are available for the entire Tulane community – students, faculty, staff and contract workers – at:
To make an appointment at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic, located on the ground floor of the JBJ Building, 1324 Tulane Ave., please click here. Before receiving your vaccine, please complete a vaccine consent form and bring it to your appointment. Special “after hours” appointments designed especially for students, along with free transportation and prizes, are also available.
You can also receive a 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.
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, you do not need to update your records through the Patient Portal.
If you have decided NOT to get vaccinated for COVID-19 because of religious or medical reasons, please submit a COVID-19 Vaccine Declination Form, which can be found at the Campus Health Patient Portal on the Forms Tab under the heading: COVID-19. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance, if you have trouble uploading your vaccine documentation.
Throughout this pandemic, Tulane has been a leader in testing, contact tracing and maintaining a low positivity rate university-wide. Our researchers have helped test the safety of vaccines in clinical trials and developed new ways to quickly detect this novel coronavirus. Now, we can be leaders once again in protecting ourselves and others by getting vaccinated as quickly as possible.
