Vaccines on campus
Student Health Services and the university continue to work closely with local and state health officials to help keep our community safe. COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are highly recommended as an integral part of personal protection from illness. With the rise of more contagious variants, people need more protection, even with prior vaccination or immunity from a recent COVID-19 infection.
SHS now has the Moderna COVID-19 bivalent vaccine available on campus. A single booster dose with an updated bivalent COVID-19 vaccine is designed to provide broad protection against COVID-19 and better protection against COVID-19 caused by the currently circulating Omicron variant.
A bivalent vaccine is recommended because it's the only type that provides additional protection against the most dominant Omicron strains of COVID-19 in the U.S.
Vaccine and booster eligibility
Moderna bivalent COVID-19 vaccine is authorized for a single dose booster to individuals 18 years of age and older.
If it has been at least two months after you completed the primary vaccination or most recent booster with any authorized monovalent COVID-19, you are eligible to receive the Moderna bivalent COVID-19 vaccine regardless of which series or booster you received.
Student Health Services offers vaccinations Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Center for Health and Well-Being. Please schedule an appointment for a vaccine at MyHealthSpace. If you have been vaccinated elsewhere, please remember to upload your vaccine record into MyHealthSpace.
Community testing sites are also available.
How to upload your vaccination card to MyHealthSpace
Once you have been fully vaccinated – by receiving two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine – you should upload your completed vaccination card. If you get your vaccine administered through Student Health Services, you do not need to upload your proof of vaccination because your status will be automatically updated.

- Click the Medical Clearances tab.
- Click the green Update button next to COVID Test/Vaccine.
- Attach a photo of your vaccine card or record.
- Enter your vaccination date(s) and choose which vaccine you received. Click Done.
