Princeton University is hosting a series of COVID-19 vaccination clinics that are available to everyone 12 or older who lives, works or studies in New Jersey.

The University is now able to vaccinate 12-to-15-year-olds at these upcoming Pfizer clinics at Jadwin Gym. Appointments can be booked on New Jersey’s Vaccine Scheduling System.

Please note that you must be available to receive your second dose in three weeks; your second appointment will be scheduled automatically. First or second doses of the Pfizer vaccine are being offered at all clinics.

On Saturday, May 15, the University will hold a clinic from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Caldwell Fieldhouse to distribute 40 remaining doses of the single-dose Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine. No appointments will be scheduled for that clinic, which is open to walk-ins from the public. Janssen clinics are held in partnership with the Princeton Department of Health.

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.
