Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program
*Appointments for COVID-19 vaccinations at the Lanman Center on campus are available.*
The Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program has received a new supply of Pfizer vaccine. Eligible Yale faculty, staff, students and Yale Health members (aged 16 and older) can follow these tips to schedule a vaccination on campus at the Lanman Center.
Voluntary Reporting of COVID-19 Vaccine Outside of the Yale Program
Individuals with COVID-19 vaccination performed outside of the Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program may voluntarily submit their COVID-19 vaccination record to the university. By doing so, it will ensure that your vaccination status is on record with the university for COVID-19 monitoring across the Yale community. In addition, your record will be added to your Yale Health / Yale New Haven Health electronic health record and available to you within your MyChart account. Please note that if you received your vaccination through Yale New Haven Health, it is considered outside of the Yale Program. Once you have been fully vaccinated, access the forms here.
Check your calendar
- Some sites will list the vaccine they are providing. The most effective vaccine is the one that gets into your arm. Still, you may have a choice. If so, pick the option that works best for your schedule.
- Moderna = 2 doses, 28 days apart
- Pfizer = 2 doses, 21 days apart (16 and 17-year old’s can only receive Pfizer)
- MyChart - required for the Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program and direct scheduling through Yale New Haven Health.
- Register with the Vaccine Administration Management System.
- Register with CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart pharmacies. Have your insurance card readily available. You can download or print a version of your Yale Health insurance card which contains the required information.
- Create a MyChart Plus account (Hartford Healthcare).
Explore all scheduling options
- Eligible Yale employees and Yale Health members may schedule their vaccine through the Yale Program or state options, but please schedule only one appointment for vaccination, i.e., either through the state program or through the Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program.
- Check back often for available appointments.
- Bring a photo ID and health insurance card with you to your vaccine appointment.
