We have received many inquiries about whether undergraduate students are eligible to receive the vaccine. At this point, students are not eligible to receive the vaccine based on the state guidelines for vaccine administration. Only sign up for a vaccine if a scheduling link was sent directly to you from the School of Medicine. Students who sign up using another individual's sign-up link will be turned away. Scheduling in an available time slot that you are not eligible for will disrupt the administration of the vaccine to those who are currently eligible. If you are a student who signed up for the vaccine using a forwarded link, please cancel your appointment. As soon as students are eligible to receive the vaccine, we will communicate this to you directly.
The following testing schedule is planned through the end of February:
Three times per week:
These students must complete their test within 48 hours of receiving their QR code.
Every two weeks:
These individuals must complete their test within 72 hours of receiving their QR code.
QR Codes are sent based on testing capacity and a carefully planned schedule, please monitor your email and schedule your test when received.
Test schedule is subject to change. Please check the COVID-19 resources website for updates. During this period, certain groups may be identified for increased testing. Monitor your email to make sure you are compliant with any extra testing requirements.
Please allow up to 48 hours to receive your testing results. Should you not receive your testing results, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Tulane Testing Centers will be closed Mardi Gras day only. Classes will be held and the university will continue normal operations on Lundi Gras. The city of New Orleans has also announced bar closures and other restrictions beginning next Friday, Feb. 12, through Mardi Gras Day, Feb. 16.
