Yale COVID-19 Vaccine Program

Schedule Your COVID-19 Vaccine and Boosters Through the Yale Program

Yale faculty, staff, students and Yale Health members (aged 5 and older) can schedule their COVID-19 vaccine and boosters online. Appointments are available for initial vaccinations and boosters for those 12 years of age and older, and for vaccinations for children ages 5-15. Second boosters for certain individuals can also be scheduled. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides guidance and eligibility guidelines for additional doses and boosters.

The vaccine clinic is located at 310 Winchester Ave. If you need scheduling assistance, please call the Campus COVID Resource Line (CCRL) at 203-432-6604. Please CANCEL any appointments you do not end up needing.

If you have tested positive for COVID-19:

Data about the most appropriate timeframe for receiving a COVID-19 booster after having tested positive is limited. Based on experience with other vaccines, Yale experts suggest receiving a vaccination 4 weeks following infection.

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that a booster dose may be administered as early as 10 days following COVID-19 diagnosis (symptom onset or positive test) and completion of isolation.
  • Those with a booster requirement who wish to delay their booster may request a temporary medical exemption for up to 90 days with evidence of a positive test.
  • Individuals may wish to discuss optimal timing with their primary care clinician based on their individual risk profile.
