Beginning Thursday, May 6, Princeton University will host a series of COVID-19 vaccination clinics that will be available to all members of the University community and to the public at large.

The State of New Jersey Department of Health has provided more than 2,000 first doses of the Pfizer vaccine to be administered in clinics at Jadwin Gym:

  • Thursday, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Tuesday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, May 12, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Please note that you must be available to receive your second dose in three weeks; your second appointment will be scheduled automatically. Second-dose clinics will be held, respectively, on May 27, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; June 1, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and June 2, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Everyone 16 or older who lives, works or studies in New Jersey is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine and can register on New Jersey’s Vaccine Scheduling System.

Undergraduate and graduate students who will not be on campus in three weeks can register to participate in a separate clinic on Thursday, May 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. in Jadwin Gym. The clinic will be hosted by the Princeton Department of Public Health in partnership with University Health Services, and will be administering the single-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine. Students can schedule an appointment through their MyUHS portal.

The University encourages all students, faculty and staff to get vaccinated. As soon as students are vaccinated, they must upload their COVID-19 vaccine record into their MyUHS portal. Employees who are vaccinated should upload their information in VacStatus.

All undergraduate and graduate students enrolled or otherwise present on campus during the 2021-22 academic year are required to receive, and to provide proof of having received, a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The University has not yet decided whether to require faculty, staff and others working or otherwise present on campus during the 2021-22 academic year to provide proof of having received an authorized vaccine.
