Vanderbilt University announced today that Occupational Health will host no-cost walk-up COVID-19 vaccine clinics starting in early June for university-employed faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows. 

The university recently announced that all university-employed faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 202122 academic year. The deadline to submit full vaccination records is July 31, 2021. 

The first/second dose Pfizer vaccine is available to anyone over age 18, and no appointment is necessary. Vaccines will be offered in two-hour blocks, with morning and afternoon options to accommodate most schedules 

Those receiving their vaccine will need to bring their Vanderbilt University ID. A vaccination card reflecting a completed first dose is required for all individuals seeking a second dose only.

Vanderbilt continues to encourage members of the university community to explore every option available to get vaccinated. Throughout the spring, a significant number of faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows chose to get vaccinated in an effort to keep the university community as safe as possible. 

Those already vaccinated are encouraged to submit their vaccination records to the Public Health Command Center as soon as possible to meet the university requirement and to help leadership develop a broad understanding of the vaccine status of the Vanderbilt community. This information, in conjunction with CDC and VUMC public health guidance, will inform decision-making about campus protocols.
