COVID-19 Vaccinations

Last Updated: April 13, 2021

Vaccine eligibility will expand to everyone 16 and older for the Pfizer vaccine and 18 and older for the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines beginning Monday, March 29. This means that virtually all Tulane students, faculty and staff are now eligible to receive vaccines.

Members of the Tulane community can make an appointment either through the Tulane Vaccine Clinic or through the more than 400 pharmacies and other provider vaccine locations throughout the state. Tulanians are also urged to seek vaccine through mass vaccinations locations such as Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and other sites throughout our area. Before being vaccinated at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic, a vaccine consent form will need to be completed by each individual prior to their arrival at the clinic. You must also present your Splash Card at the clinic.

We urge members of the Tulane community to seek appointments outside those offered by the Tulane Vaccine Clinic.

Please Report Your Vaccination!

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.

Will Tulane be providing vaccinations for family members of Tulane faculty, staff, and students?

At this time, vaccinations at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic are only for Tulane faculty, staff, and students.

If I've been vaccinated, do I still need to get tested for COVID-19?

Yes. The vaccine protects you from becoming infected with COVID-19 but there is a chance that you could still spread the virus. It is important to continue following all health safety protocols and to continue with routine testing to protect others who have not yet received the vaccine.

Why was Tulane selected as a vaccine provider by the Louisiana Department of Health?

Tulane had to apply to the state to be a point of distribution for the vaccine. We believe Tulane was selected as a vaccine provider because we have three health and allied health schools where faculty students and staff are on the front lines of confronting COVID 19. In addition, our School of Medicine has the ability to rapidly deploy vaccinations and we have a large population of individuals in our community who are eligible for vaccination according to the state’s COVID-19 vaccine guidelines. Finally, we showed our ability to do large scale medical operations by administering 175,000 COVID-19 tests since January 4, 2021.
