Dear Tulane Employees:
Tulane is offering vaccines for all students, faculty and staff at the Tulane Vaccine Clinic. The public health benefits of getting vaccinated cannot be overstated, and we strongly encourage each individual to receive their vaccination. At some point in the future, Tulane may decide to make the vaccine a requirement, but for now, the vaccine is being offered to employees on a voluntary basis. If you choose to not receive the vaccine, we ask that you submit a declination form so that we can have a true picture of how many in our community have received the vaccine and how many do not plan to get vaccinated. Completion of the declination form is also voluntary.
Please note: All faculty, staff, and students are required to participate in ongoing surveillance testing throughout the semester regardless of vaccine status or the presence of antibodies from a previous COVID-19 infection.
You can receive the 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, your record will be updated automatically.
If you have decided NOT to get vaccinated for COVID-19, please fill out and submit a voluntary COVID-19 Vaccine Declination Form. The form can be found in the Campus Health Patient Portal on the Forms Tab under the heading: COVID-19.
Having trouble uploading your vaccine documents? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
The State of Louisiana has a new Vaccine Hotline. The hotline number is 1-855-453-0774, and the hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday.
The hotline will help residents schedule vaccine appointments, find vaccine providers in their area and connect people with medical professionals who can answer vaccine-related questions. In addition, the hotline will be able to schedule vaccine appointments.
