1,600 Doses of Vaccine Now Available for Students–Register Today!
Dear Students and Families:
On Wednesday, April 7, Syracuse University will begin administering the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson’s single-dose vaccination on our campus. We have received an initial allotment of 1,600 doses from New York State and Onondaga County. We expect to receive more doses in the coming days and weeks and will notify our community as they become available.
Today, the Barnes Center staff will begin contacting students who pre-registered to receive a vaccination through the University to schedule their appointment. This notification will be done via text or email. Important request: We ask that students always keep their cell phones and devices on hand so the Barnes Center staff can easily reach you.
Pre-Register for On-Campus Vaccination Appointments: For students who have yet to register, we ask that all students who are interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine through the Barnes Center complete this form right away!
Submit Proof of Vaccination: For those students who have already received or will receive the COVID vaccine at an off-campus site, we ask that you please submit your documentation through the Student Patient Portal. Students who receive the vaccination on campus are not required to submit documentation. Any student who is vaccinated is exempt from required pre-entry testing to stadium events, as well as from being quarantined in the event you are a close contact to a positive COVID-19 case.
You will receive frequent updates from the Public Health Team about vaccine availability as we continue to receive additional doses. Please be sure to register as soon as possible. A widely vaccinated community is key to preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
